As we get ready to celebrate all things Philly this Saturday on what will now forever be known as 215 Day, we must discuss water ice in our great city.
Fred’s– Located at 5349 Chester Ave, Fred’s has over 20 flavors of water ice from blueberry to Swedish Fish. They sell more than water ice. We can’t forget their pizza pretzel as well as their sundaes, chicken tenders and more.
Siddiq’s– If you want real fruit in your water ice then you need to head over to the person who revolutionized water ice by doing just that! Siqqi’s Water Ice is located at 264 S 60th Street. He got his start by selling water ice on Temple’s campus.
