What’s every kid’s dream? How ‘bout 冰淇淋? Well, the newest Livermore Soft Ice Cream Shop delivers on the dream, with Pop-Tart ice-cream sandwiches.

Creamier than fro-yo (it’s made with real eggs), frozen custard is definitely an East Coast delicacy intended to withstand hot weather. The newest Rita’s Italian Ice in Pleasanton serves old-school style custard-chocolate, vanilla, swirl, and rotating specialty flavors-out of a piece of equipment. Its house-made specialty flavors have got a gelato-like consistency, like cotton candy confetti and coffee toffee crunch. For the creamy/icy combo, use a Rita’s original, the Gelati, that is a mix of frozen custard and house-made ices. And stay tuned: Rita’s empire is expanding during the entire Tri-Valley, with six new locations from the works.
