According to Google "It's an American invention that came out of New Jersey about 100 years ago. However, Italian Ice is based on an Italian creation called granita, which is a semi-frozen dessert, originally created in Sicily, that's made from sugar, water, and various flavorings."

 

Growing up at the Jersey Shore, we always loved good Italian ice. Now I will be totally honest and say I had one flavor that was and still is my pick. I loved "lemon" Italian ice and even today if I get Italian ice, it will be "lemon". I've always loved lemon when it comes to ice.
