I’ve recently turned 38 and it’s funny how much comfort food takes on more and more importance as you grow older. Memories take you back to moments in your life and take on so much meaning, completely defining you as a person.
I’m a native San Franciscan and we know you’re not from San Francisco when you say “San Fran”, “Frisco” or “SF”.
We say things like “hella” a lot (hella badass), something we don’t share with our Southern Californian counterparts.
And then, we have It’s It. Growing up, we never had much ice cream in the house and we were never a family that bought ice cream by the box or gallon. But there were those moments when friends and I would go to the store and buy an It’s It: two large oatmeal cookies with ice cream in the middle (vanilla, chocolate, mint and cappuccino) which is then dipped into chocolate. Perfect for summer. Or, if you’re like me, perfect for those colder days as well.
