What is Italian Ice?

Italian ice, also known as water ice, is a sweetened frozen dessert made with fruit or other natural or artificial food flavorings, similar to sorbet. Italian ice is not shaved ice that is flavored; rather, it is made by the same process by which ice cream is made: freezing the ingredients while mixing them. Italian ice differs from sherbet in that it does not contain dairy or egg ingredients.

Do you have sugar free?

We do not currently offer sugar free products on a daily basis. However, all of our Italian ice is dairy free and fat free. Sugar Free, Gluten free and Low sugar can be special ordered. Ask for details.

What Flavors do you have?

You name it, we probably make it! We have over 40 flavors that we can make. Because we have so many, our flavors change weekly to keep a good balance for all of our customers.

What is D’Lite?

We make a product called D’lite. D’Lite is a mixture of our ‘secret’ custard recipe and all kinds of goodness to make a specialty ice cream. It does have dairy in it unlike our Italian ice. We are continuing to come up with new flavors for our D’Lites. The possibilities are endless!

What is Nick’s Italian Ice?
