I'm sure there's some kind of joke I could make regarding tomorrow's snowy/icy forecast and this promotion, but I don't have time for jokes...IT'S ALMOST SPRING AND THERE'S FREE TREATS TO BE HAD!

Mango ice from Rita's! (Laurie Cataldo)

Every year, Rita's Italian Ice celebrates the first day of spring by giving away a FREE -limited edition- cup of deliciousness. Available flavors will vary by location. (Lucky for me, they dropped off a few tubs of the good stuff today! Mango FTW!)

There's locations all over the Jersey Shore, and they'll be open from noon to 9 p.m.!

I'm normally a Rita's Gelati gal...more specifically, chocolate custard layered with coconut cream or chocolate brownie ice topped with more chocolate custard...mmmmm.

In addition to the free ice, they're also holding a pretty sweet photo contest...snap a photo of yourself with your free Rita's ice tomorrow, and upload it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #RitasFirstDayofSpring and you could win some amazing prizes...including free ice for a YEAR.
