Jim-Jim's Water-Ice

Jim-Jim's Water Ice is a golden cone of frozen fruity heaven, and nothing tastes better on a hot day. Jim Moy was a systems analyst in Philly until that fateful afternoon when he took a friend from Austin out for an Italian ice. The Austinite ranted and raved and wished he had this rare Yankee treat back home. That's all Jim needed to hear. He packed up, headed south, and now he's cranking out a dozen gourmet real-fruit flavors of smooth 'n' tasty Philly style Italian ice, including mango, black raspberry, passionfruit, and guava, from his shop on Old Pecan Street. Welcome, Yankee!
