Free? We're all over that. Rita's celebrated the first day of spring by giving away 10 oz. Italian ices. At the location we went to, there was the option to upgrade to a gelati for $1, which is what my daughter did, with sprinkles for an additional 50 cents.
This was my first time trying Rita's and I loved it! I went with a mint chocolate chip cream ice, which I worried would be a bad choice, but it totally wasn't! My daughter got the Peeps flavor, which was a lot of fun.
