1. So, story time. I'm 12, a young lad by any standard. We are on a field trip to some water park. I can't remember which one exactly. Doesn't matter.
I wanted something sweet and that could parch my thirst as well. I saw this truck selling Italian Ice. Yay! I thought to myself! Awesome! I started doing the Italian Ice version of the Eddie Murphy standup bit where he's singing, "you aint got no Ice Creaam", but the Italian Ice version.
Unfortunately, things are about to go south. They gave me a little tiny wooden spoon for something I'm going to need a freakin light saber to cut through. I get that you're supposed to scrape the ice, making this little sorbet like situation on the end of your stick, but if the delivery method requires my 12 year old frame to nearly pop my shoulder out of its socket to get a chunk of italian ice in my mouth, give me a bottle of water and some Ice Cream
ALSO, YOU CAN'T PUT SPRINKLES OR ANY OTHER TOPPINGS ON ITALIAN ICE. WHY IN THE NAME OF ISAAC NEWTON ARE WE CHOOSING AN OBVIOUSLY SUPBAR PRODUCT?"

2. The fact that you asked this question, means you don't get it. :)
3. Hats off to our vegan and dairy-challenged friends but it is a known fact that anyone that can actually eat ice cream prefers fatty, sweet, dairy ice cream over the water-based Italian ice. I don't think this is a fair question tbh.
4. Ice cream as a default. Water Ice after swimming. Either if they have actually have faces and scream while being eaten.

5. Italian ice is just a fancy word for ice cubes. I'd rather chomp on something more decadent.
