The Bay Area cult favorite treat is branching out with more variations
A menage of It’s-It products infrequently found in the wild are landing in the ice-cream aisle of big-name grocery retailers across California.
You can already buy traditional It’s-It sandwiches — ice cream squished between two oatmeal cookies and covered in chocolate — at grocers around the region, but this latest roll-out introduces three new products to mainstream audiences: the Big Daddy, Super Sundae and Chips-It.
Each of the treats will be available in three-, eight- or ten-packs at Northern California stores, including Safeway, Walmart, Lucky Save Mart, Smart and Final, Winco Foods, Raleys, Nob Hill Foods, Bel Air Markets and Food Maxx, said It’s-It spokesperson Justin Shamieh.
The Big Daddy (vanilla ice cream between two chocolate wafers), Super Sundae (vanilla ice cream dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in peanuts) and Chips-It (vanilla ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies) have been around for some time now, though they were previously sold only as singles.
The Chips-It was the first new product that It’s-It released in 20 years when it debuted last year, according to SF Eater, though the sandwich bears a strong resemblance to earlier It’s-It iterations.
Until recently, the trio of desserts could be purchased single-serve at local corner stores in California, as well as the It’s-It factory shop in Burlingame (865 Burlway Rd.).
It’s-It was founded in San Francisco in 1928. The traditional cookie sandwiches can be found at many major retailers in states west of the Rockies. You can find a full list of retailers here.
