Notes: It's It Ice Cream


As I sit here and type this up, I realized: for it being December, we sure ate a lot of frozen treats on our trip to the Bay Area. You can read about our late evening jaunt to Smitten: here. While Smitten was a new adventure for us, It's It Ice Cream is a long-standing favorite. It's the ice cream sandwich the boys pick whenever they want a sweet treat from the grocery store. Sadly, we can only get vanilla and mint flavors here. But I've long known that there were other flavors. I just needed to head up to the factory store to get my hands on some.


The birthday boy looked at all the choices and knew that I had a Groupon for a dozen. He chose two each of Green Tea, Cappuccino, Pumpkin, Chocolate, and Strawberry; and added one Vanilla and one Mint.


We purchased enough dry ice to last 24 hours and headed out for our next adventure.


Jake thought we needed a decal for the car. Really?!? Okay.


And we hadn't yet left the parking lot when the boys crack opened the styrofoam cooler and made their selections.


R wanted to try the Green Tea. I shared the second one with Jake.


And D went for the Pumpkin. By the end of our trip we had devoured them all.


The verdict: Green Tea is my favorite now. I liked the Cappuccino, but it wasn't coffee-y enough for me. D loved the pumpkin.  I wanted to pick up another dozen of the various flavors and bring it home for friends who have also been longing to try, specifically, the Green Tea version. But I didn't have time, so that will have to be another trip. Soon. Who's in?
