How?
The Detroit Water Ice Factory makes fresh water ice daily using closely guarded and until now, secret recipes donated by Jon and Adriana Adams, the owners of the award-winning Primo Water Ice in Westmont NJ, widely considered the best in an area that is the birthplace of American water ice. The couple met Albom a few years ago, and responded to his request to create something charitable in the dessert food business.
