Since the days get warmer, we dare you to definitely resist trying one of those delicious ice-cream concoctions.
What’s every kid’s dream? How ‘bout 冰淇淋? Well, the newest Livermore Ice Cream Shop delivers around the dream, with Pop-Tart ice-cream sandwiches. Choose your breakfast-pastry flavor, including blueberry, chocolate fudge, and s’mores-along with your favorite frozen goodies. Go completely wild with the help of a topping (or three).
Creamier than fro-yo (it’s made using real eggs), frozen custard is surely an East Coast delicacy created to withstand warm weather. The newest Rita’s Italian Ice in Pleasanton serves old-school style custard-chocolate, vanilla, swirl, and rotating specialty flavors-out from a piece of equipment. Its house-made specialty flavors have a gelato-like consistency, like cotton candy confetti and coffee toffee crunch. To get a creamy/icy combo, try out a Rita’s original, the Gelati, and that is a combination of frozen custard and house-made ices. And stay tuned: Rita’s empire is expanding through the entire Tri-Valley, with six new locations inside the works.
