Next time I'll go Light

Recently I tried a gelati for the first time. If you have never had one, it's soft serve ice cream or custard layered with Italian ice ... and it's good. Tonight we tried the gelati at Rita's which is a National franchise that just opened a location nearby. I was pleased to learn that they offer a fat free soft serve and a different sugar free Italian ice flavor every day which makes it a pretty reasonable treat (3 pts for a regular size). I will however confess that tonight I didn't go that route. The sugar free flavor was root beer - which is something I love - but their version was kind of bland so I opted for a regular Italian Ice flavor - raspberry lemonade. It was nicely tart/sweet with pieces of fresh raspberries throughout - truly lovely. Sadly I didn't notice the flyer on the fat free ice cream until after I was already digging into my regular version. Oh well. This was going to be a one time splurge for us to check out the place - now that I know they have a really light option we can splurge more often!
