On hot summer nights, one of my favorite things to do with my family is to take a drive over to Ralph's for a refreshing cold ice. Sometimes, the promise of getting ices is enough to get my kids to listen throughout the day - yes, I bribe them with an icy treat!!
As we were getting prepared to leave for Italy this week, I needed the kids to help out with finalizing their packing of suitcases and carry-on bags the day before leaving. This is something they were not keen on and much preferred to play on their electronics. I told them if they cooperated with me, that we would end the day with a bon voyage trip to Ralph's.
The menu is super colossal with an enormous list of flavors in a variety of icy cold treat categories. The great thing about their massive selection is has plenty of options for both vegans and non-vegans. This is always an important factor these days, because I get really excited when I find places that will accommodate the eating needs of both Travelin' Cousins for our cousins' visits!
So, we all piled in the car after dinner- me, Tedd, Gianna, Kelsey and Rebecca for a farewell evening of sweets. I have to tell you, I get very overwhelmed with all the choices! Usually, when we go, I have to study their menu beforehand to decide what I'm going to order. This time, I made up my mind to go with a small Sherbet (which has 3 scoops) with Banana Fudge, Cookies 'n Cream and Pistachio! And let me tell you, this was a killer choice!!
Nothing better than Ralph's on a Summer night!
