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

Creamier than fro-yo (it’s made with real eggs), frozen custard is definitely an East Coast delicacy intended to withstand warm weather. The latest Rita’s Italian Ice in Pleasanton serves old-school style custard-chocolate, vanilla, swirl, and rotating specialty flavors-away from a unit. Its house-made specialty flavors have a gelato-like consistency, like cotton candy confetti and coffee toffee crunch.

And stay tuned: Rita’s empire is expanding through the entire Tri-Valley, with six new locations inside the works.
