It's It ice cream sandwiches

These Bay Area classic ice cream sandwiches are the ultimate summer treat. It's Its are an old fashioned San Francisco sweet. They are ice cream sandwiches with a scoop of vanilla, chocolate, mint or cappucino ice cream sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies and dunked into dark chocolate. They were invented in 1928 and the packaging looks like it has not changed since then which is, admittedly, part of their charm.I like these treats so much I ordered a couple cases of It's Its to serve as our rehearsal dinner dessert. A little informal, yes, but lots of fun. I have also been know to run to a convenience store to pick up some It's Its for a dinner party. They are just fun and really tasty!
