When temperatures are soaring and in the triple digits here in Southern California you’d be doing yourself a favor if you can find this cool truck that offers 120 different flavors of Italian ice. It’s pretty amazing what “Mustache Mikes” can do with just water, fruit and other ingredients. Their Italian Ice is smooth creamy, non-dairy, fat free, gluten free, cholesterol free, soy free, and Kosher.
“Mustache Mikes” is based in Orange County, CA and makes lots of appearances at fairs, fundraisers and festivals. If you call them you can also book them for weddings, private parties and corporate events.
I was lucky enough to try them because the office building I work in, hired them to give us FREE Italian Ice as a “thank you” for being a tenant in the building.
On the day they came to our office we had our choice of these flavors:
Juicy Rancher: (Watermelon, Lemon, Sour Apple)
Big Daddy: (Cherry, Orange, Pineapple)
Da Bomb: (Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Lemon)
Bada Bing: (Cherry)
Root Beer Float
Imagine the fun I had walking up to the window and ordering a “Big Daddy mixed with a Juicy Rancher.” The “Big Daddy” tasted like a big stick popsicle and the “Juicy Rancher” tasted like Jolly Rancher hard candies.
Some of my friends tried Chocolate, Mango and Root Beer Float. (Individually, not mixed together) and they were pretty happy with the flavor and texture of their Italian Ice.
My friend who tried the Chocolate said she was thrilled to be able to eat this because she’s lactose intolerant. My other friend who tried Root Beer Float said it tasted just like Root Beer and he was very pleased.
I really enjoyed the flavor combination that I mixed together and I liked the smoothness, denseness and texture of the Italian Ice. It held together for a long time and took a while to melt. It had really good mouth appeal and felt and tasted really good when you swallowed it. It was a very sexy, smooth water ice and I highly recommend it.
