Rita's Italian Ice offers free sweet treat to kick off spring


Rita's Italian Ice is serving up a tasty tradition Monday!

To celebrate the first day of spring, all participating stores are giving away free Italian ice to customers who stop by from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

This is Rita's 25th annual first day of spring giveaway.

The ices will come in a limited-edition first day of spring cup!

Plus, the popular Peeps flavored Italian ice is making a comeback!

Some stores will have it available to sample, but it won't officially hit the Rita's menu until March 27.
