Finely crushed ice, lucious bits of lemon and the tart yet sweet taste of lemonade.
If you are a Rhode Islander, you know exactly what I am describing: Del’s Lemonade. It is the refreshing treat I grew up with while living back in my home state, and no, it is NOT Italian ice.

“Unlike the vast empire of beauty products owned by major corporations, Gloss48 is a different type of retailer – helping beauty lovers uncover every hidden gem.”
