Ok, so it may taste delicious but the name is just stupid! I am curious to see what TN folks call it but in Philly/Delaware area they called it water ice. My question has always been "what other kind of ice is there?"
There has been another term I just can't stand here in the south...ink pen! I asked a bunch of ladies here at a school function one time what an ink pen was compared to just a pen I was politely told it could be a cage for an animal. Now I can buy that since we have farms around us.
But water ice? Still not buyin' it!
But I might take the kids to the new store for what I call "Italian ice". Come and visit for yourself you will be sure to enjoy this northern delicacy I promise.
