What’s every kid’s dream? How ‘bout 冰淇淋? Well, the newest Livermore Soft Ice Cream Shop delivers about the dream, with Pop-Tart ice-cream sandwiches.

Creamier than fro-yo (it’s made out of real eggs), frozen custard is definitely an East Coast delicacy created to withstand hot weather.

Its house-made specialty flavors possess a gelato-like consistency, like cotton candy confetti and coffee toffee crunch. To get a creamy/icy combo, try a Rita’s original, the Gelati, and that is a blend of frozen custard and house-made ices. And remain tuned: Rita’s empire is expanding throughout the Tri-Valley, with six new locations within the works.
