Ice Cream/Custard/Gelato/Frozen Yogurt doesn’t always do it for me on hot summer evenings. Nor does Sorbet. If you’ve grown up in the Mid-Atlantic states, that being Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, you probably also know there is a third category of frozen dessert, Italian Ice, or Italian Water Ice, to be specific.
Italian Ices that are made on premises or in artisinal fashion has become something of an endangered species in recent years. There are three regional chains, Ralph’s, Rita’s and Uncle Louie G’s, the last two of which have effectively scaled down their Northern New Jersey operations (although Rita’s is very prevalent in central and South Jersey) so the good stuff is now very hard to find. Unless you want to settle with Marinos that you can find in the supermarket or know of a local pizza place that has a few flavors that they buy from a commercial source which they can scoop, you are effectively out of luck.
Clyde’s in Maywood (and also in Garfield and Hasbrouck Heights) is one of the last independently operated Italian Ice places that makes its own stuff.
