Since the days get warmer, we dare you to resist trying one of these delicious ice-cream concoctions.
What’s every kid’s dream? How ‘bout 冰淇淋? Well, the brand new Livermore Frozen Goodies Shop delivers about the dream, with Pop-Tart ice-cream sandwiches.

Creamier than fro-yo (it’s made with real eggs), frozen custard is an East Coast delicacy created to withstand warm weather. The new Rita’s Italian Ice in Pleasanton serves old-school style custard-chocolate, vanilla, swirl, and rotating specialty flavors-out of a piece of equipment. Its house-made specialty flavors have a gelato-like consistency, like cotton candy confetti and coffee toffee crunch. For any creamy/icy combo, try a Rita’s original, the Gelati, which is a blend of frozen custard and house-made ices. And remain tuned: Rita’s empire is expanding through the entire Tri-Valley, with six new locations from the works.
