Pay the Price of the Weather for Italian Ice Today in Rockville

by Patrick Herron

Starting today and running through Saturday, Carmen’s Italian Ice at 1115 Nelson St in Rockville is doing their annual “Pay the Price of the Weather” promotion. Whatever the temperature is outside, that’s the price of a small Italian ice (you can substitute gelati for an extra dollar.)

While obviously not a huge money maker for the store, Carmen’s owner Jason Mandler tells us the promotion is a nice treat for their diehards fans and something fun to do during the off-season, when people don’t typically have frozen treats on their mind.

Below is the weather forecast for the next few days courtesy of

Carmen’s Olney location at 3233 Spartan Rd will be running the same promotion beginning Friday, as that location is closed on Thursdays during the winter.

About Carmen’s Italian Ice:
It started with a simple idea. Introduce homemade gourmet Italian Ice to the Washington DC area. Jason Mandler – a native of Parsippany, New Jersey – opened Carmen’s Italian Ice & Cafe in Rockville, MD in 2001. Tracing its roots back to Philly and South Jersey where this dessert has been a mainstay for years, Carmen’s offers homemade, gourmet Italian Ice in over 60 flavors. It also now offers frozen custard, shakes, and a toppings bar.

Carmen’s quickly became a welcome part of the neighborhood with Jason and his staff coming up with tasty offerings, personal service and fun special events. Come on in for a morning cup of coffee or an evening Italian ice and you’ll probably run into a few of our regulars. Come a few more times and you’ll be one of them yourself.
