CJs Italian Ice & Custard
CJ’s serves house-made soft serve custard, gelato, and Italian ice, with over 30 flavors of custard and 12 flavors of Italian ice available daily. Flavors change constantly, but expect some nostalgically unique ones like Cinnamon Toast Crunch custard, Orange Saltwater Taffy custard, Cotton Candy Gelato, and Sour Patch Kid ice. The shop also offers a variety of waffle cones dipped in chocolate and coated in cereals, candies, cookies, and sprinkles, and with the sheer number and variety of toppings and sauces available, the number of possible permutations of combinations for your concrete or sundae is probably in the thousands. There’s a lot of decision-making involved, so to make it easier on yourself stick with one of their customer favorites, like Instagram-famous BOBAlati, a mix of boba, Italian ice, and gelato all rolled into one; or the Spicy Sandia, made with mango ice, watermelon ice, pineapple Dole whip, chamoy, tajin, fresh watermelon and strawberry, and a “spicy stick.” CJ’s is known for its innuendo-heavy Instagrammable moments by way of neon signage inside its shops that make a lot of use of the word “lick,” so come ready for your selfie and order something ostentatious!
