Best Local Mini-Chain

There seems to be a new Rita's Italian Ice location opening every other week, and that's fine by us. Its namesake treat tastes as though it's made in a kitchen, not a chemistry lab like snow-cones, and never more than 36 hours old. It also offers no-sugar versions (sweetened with Splenda) for those who must avoid the white stuff. But by far, the best thing Rita's offers is frozen custard. It comes in vanilla, chocolate, coffee, strawberry and orange cream, which, of course, brings to mind the best orange 50-50 bar you've ever had from the ice cream truck that drove down your childhood street, the one with the creepy driver who made all the parents a little uneasy.
