    They have two special flavors of water ice on the weekends, always with real ingredients made fresh. Biggest flavor is blueberry: they only do it once per season. Check their Facebook for flavors.

    Highly recommended water ice shop. This is a classic once that is very well-known. Very soft water ice, too. Cash only.

    A notorious local Philly spot. The blueberry, banana, and cantaloupe water ice make a very rare appearance. If these flavors are available on the menu, they’re a must.

    This water ice had a great texture. We had the cherry and it was super good. Cash only and expect a line.

    Since 1945, John's has been the cornerstone of water ice in South Philadelphia. With just four flavors—Cherry, Lemon, Pineapple, and Chocolate—John's excels with its limited palate.

    Just give in, and buy a bag of pretzel sticks to go along with your water ice. Your mouth will thank you!
