Lime Ice – Dicosmo’s Italian Ice; Elizabeth, NJ
Nothing satisfies more on a summer day than an Italian ice at Di Cosmo’s, open since 1915 in Elizabeth’s Peterstown section. Tree flavors are generally available at any one time. Lime, pineapple, orange, coconut, peach, lemon, watermelon (to mention a few) – they’re all great! Several NJ food legends are within walking distance: Tommy’s Italian Sausage & Hot Dogs, and Spirito’s, Enjoy the state’s best Italian hot dog at Tommy’s or a thin-crust pizza at time-warp wonder Spirito’s, then head to Di Cosmo’s for dessert.
