Just a heads up for those in New Jersey, yes spring is almost here and to celebrate the first day of Spring Ritas Ice gives away a free regular size Italian Ice to each and every guest (no purchase required). This years annual giveaway will be held on Tuesday, March 20 from noon to 9 p.m. at all open Rita’s locations.
P.s. They now have cholov yisrael choc. and vanilla custard at Lakewood locations.

(Expect long lines ;D)

The only ones that have a hashgacha are the ones in Lakewood?

+1.  Might have to make a trip out to Lakewood :D

Weird to do it in a litvishe community and not in a huge lubab community like PIT.

The only ones that have a hashgacha are the ones in Lakewood?
The one in PIT is kosher, but I've never heard of anything cholov yisroel there.  I'll hit it up tomorrow though and report back.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They have Rita's in the pitts? I think I might  have to change my post in the pitts master thread...

spoke to s/o in lakewood , he said hechsher is rabbi yaffe, but there is not much that he is giving a hechsher on b/c the cholov yis is the reg kleins ices choc vanilla (not sure why they call it custard) they are not really preparing it just serving it (he is supposed to make sure they use a dif machine)

That's what I heard also. Very disappointing (and slightly misleading)!!!!
