Apparently last Sunday (7/16/17) was National Ice Cream Day. Did you celebrate?
I didn’t either, but there is nothing wrong with being late to the party. Except for the free scoops you might have scored at some ice cream chains. So keep the third Sunday of July marked for next year.
The most traditional ice cream in the area is It’s-it. A special ice cream sandwich were the ice cream is between two oatmeal cookies and then dipped in chocolate. It was created in 1928 at Playland At The Beach, San Francisco’s now gone seaside amusement park.
For all die-hard fans of the treat I recommend going directly to the factory store:
865 Burlway Road, Burlingame, CA
It is open Monday – Friday from 10 am – 5:30 pm
Here you can pick all your favorite flavors (vanilla, chocolate, mint, strawberry and cappuccino) mix-and-match. You might even score some flavors that are not available in stores (pumpkin or green tea), plus some cool merchandise.
Do you have a favorite flavor?
If it is vanilla July 23rd is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day – Let’s celebrate!
