For the uninitiated, an It's-It is a San Francisco original that is available only at select places along the west coast. Having both grown up on the west coast and having an insatiable sweet tooth, you better believe I know almost all the chocolatiers, ice cream parlors and sweets they have to offer.
An It's-It is an ice cream sandwich, available in three flavors - Vanilla, Chocolate and Mint. They ice cream is sandwiched between two large (~3" diameter) oatmeal cookies, all of which is coated by chocolate... hmmm
In the Bay Area, they are available in nearly every convenience store, however as you get further from the Bay Area, they become harder and harder to find. If you have a sweet tooth, or it is a hot day, I recommend trying one.
Next ingredient for the Perftect Pool Party:
Fun-loving animals!! Dogs, cats, birds are always welcomed to the summer pool parties!
Of course a Perfect Pool Party wouldn't be so "perfect" without a visit from Don Julio.........or if Don isn't available, than Jose Cuervo will have to do !
Bottoms up ya'll!
This is a wonderful custom. What's not to like?? The bread is so fabulous . Its a real signiture here and they even pack it to go at the airport!!
Another added *plus* to any Pool Party is a round of......what else? POOL!
Of course, to make it "perfect" it must be played shirtless! ;-)
Not a tip really...but when in San Francisco you should try Ciopino soup..it is a fish stew, with mussels, clams, crabs, scallops, shrimp and totally delicious!
