According to Wikipedia:

Water ice could refer to:

  1. The scientific term for the ice formed by water (as opposed to other substances)
  2. A slang term in the greater Philadelphia area for Italian ice
  3. An ice climbing term to denote ice made from flowing water (as opposed to ice from precipitation)

Italian ice, also known as water ice, is a sweetened frozen dessert made with fruit (often from concentrates, juices or purées) or other natural or artificial food flavorings, similar to sorbet. Italian ice is NOT shaved ice that is flavored; rather, it is made by the same process by which ice cream is made: freezing the ingredients while mixing them. Italian ice differs from sherbet in that it does not contain dairy or egg ingredients, other than egg white. Common flavors include blue raspberry, cherry, lemon, mango, orange, strawberry and watermelon, with numerous other flavors available.

At Philly Frank's, our water ice is the Philadelphia original - Esposito's Italian Water Ice.
