GHETTO Snack Hall of Fame - Italian Icees


There was nothing more tasty than an Italian Icee when I was growing up. On a hot day getting a nice sugar fake ice cream kick with unnatural flavor was divine. They were so good that you didn't mind that the guy scooping the icee hand's were dirty and it was kind of in your icee when he gave it to you. They were even better because they only cost 50 cents. 50 cents was all you needed to be unhealthy and momentarily happy. Today you would be hard pressed to find any Icee that costs less than a dollar. And today the flavors are uniform and less exotic than they used to be. This pic alone makes my mouth water.

I was only allowed to eat the lemon ones because it had the least amount artificial ingredients. *true story*

Damn! I've never even seen half of the flavors in that pic! Maybe the recession hit the icee carts before anything/anyone else.

When I moved to the city, I though it was so cool that you could by icees from a cart on the corner. They were everywhere..now, not so much. Artificial flavors and all, I loved icees. Maybe they could rejuvenate sales by trying some ALL REAL FRUIT varieties. I'm just sayin'.

Stay optimistic. Lower back pain can be disconcerting for you personally, particularly if it gets constant back pain. Remaining good and working on lowering anxiety in other parts of your life can help your rear, by letting you distract your self and to focus on items that provide you with pleasure and delight instead.

Possibly there was anything you actually desired to do whenever you were actually inside your twenties, however, you set it apart as impractical: you had to cover the bills, provide for your loved ones. As you now have attained retirement life age group, it is a chance to think back to all those likes and dislikes you place apart. Don't consider you can't pursue them now. You may!
