Local franchise giving away water ice today

    After you shed your cow costume and down your free Chick-fil-A meal, you might have a hankering for something sweet. Lucky for you, today’s turning into a day of freebies.  A new local water ice franchise is dishing out free servings.

    Rocco’s Italian Ice is giving one regular-size water ice to each customer today to celebrate its six new locations around Philadelphia and Montgomery County. The husband and wife team say the recipes are authentic and made fresh daily.

    You’ll find locations in Nicetown, Feltonville, Lawncrest, Mt. Airy, West Oak Lane and Wyndmoor. Hand-outs run 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
