I'm not talking Rice-A-Roni here, the San Francisco treat I'm referring to is IT'S-IT Ice Cream. When I was a kid, we'd often pass the IT'S-IT factory perched on the edge of Highway 101 near the San Francisco airport. I would beg my parents to stop, but alas, it never happened. I still threaten to stop...perhaps some things are best left as a mystery. So, to satiate my desires I hop into the nearest Draeger's and pick up a box. The Original IT'S-IT Ice Cream Treat, once named the official food of San Francisco, started in 1928 and has since become a legend. The recipe has never changed; a scoop of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies then dunked in dark chocolate. I don't care how old you are, you're never too old to beg for one of these.
