John's Water Ice

701 Christian Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147-3911
(215) 925-6955

I love water ice. I really do. But I must admit, after a couple of tries, John's just doesn't do it for me. I really, really want to love this place, but I can't. And I feel (gasp) that Rita's is better. There, I said it.

The picture is blurry, but I mean, it's water ice. You get the idea. I felt as though it was too frozen, and reminiscent of Luigi's. Also, it tastes really artificial. I am aware that they use "natural fruit syrup" but, what does that mean exactly? Anyway, I would go if I was in the neighborhood, as in, in front of the store, but other than that, I will pass.
