King of Corona

Paul Simon sings about Rosie, the Queen of Corona. But I recently visited the King of Corona...the Lemon Ice King of Corona to be exact!

Matt and I took a drive to Corona Queens to try some of the King's famous Italian ice. We both got lemon, which I can report was very good! It's better than the Italian ice you get in paper cups at the grocery store because it was soft enough to eat like ice cream and had a natural lemon flavor. But it's different (and not as good as) Rita's Water Ice, which I like because it's slushier and has bits of lemon in it.

The Lemon Ice King has over 3 dozen flavors. Now that tops Rita's! But my other slight beef is that you aren't allowed to mix flavors in one cup. But have no fear, I'll go back to try the others...well most of the others-- not so sure about licorice flavor:-P

Adding to the adventure, the nearby park has a bocce ball court, where some old Italian guys were involved in a serious competition!

With a hat like this, I think we might have found The Queen!

The Queen is in the county of Kings, of course:

My parents would take me here all the time during the summer.

D, what makes you think it's shut? Looks great!

I've been to L&B for 'za but not Italian Ice...add it to the list:-) I think Totonnos is the next pizza spot though.
