We stopped here on our way out of ocean island and glad we did. I had the birthday cake and my husband had the almond joy. They were wonderful! You will not be disappointed in this place at all.

Good selection of flavors. Was disappointed that they didn't have chocolate but it was still good. Will cool you down on a hot day.

The children absolutely love these things! They line up at the cart on the beach. There is also a store front at the Pier and one across the bridge. They offer more flavors than the cart on the beach carries. If you are going to get multiple, the Koozie is a good deal. They are a little overpriced but worth... More

Best Italian Ice anywhere! Gluten Free, even without that it's the best tasting, so many flavors to choose. Great price for the Ice! Get a "cushie" and get a better price, go back for more!!

Best "water ice" this side of the Mason Dixon line. Smooth, refreshing almost ice cream but refreshing like sorbet.

If you're looking for a sweet treat that won't break the bank or your belt, this is it. I was expecting something slightly better than a sno-cone but was blown away by how good it was. You can also buy a souvenir size cup and get cheaper refills. Will definitely be back!

Sunset Slush is a long term sponsor of our summer concerts. They are always on hand with a great product. Their slashes are loved by everyone especially our grandkids. I believe they are tops!

Best Italian ice ever! Family owned and operated (other franchises around) I love the combos. ( Banana pudding, for one!) At the original location on beach drive they have soft serve ice cream the mix into the ice to make "gelato" flavors. It is delicious! (Root beer float, Creamsicle, etc. )

The slush cart comes around on the beach with a few flavor selections. Creamsicle and blue vanilla were both delicious.
