Does anyone know if It's-its are still around? They were a chocolate covered ice cream cookie sold in the bay area. I didn't see them on a recent trip to SF and I didn't get a chance to ask anyone.

      Yes, that's Its. I used to see them sold individually in the freezer of every little shop in the city but they appear to be sold in multi paks in supermakets now.

        Yes, I just saw them in a supermarket in Walnut Creek. I do not see them sold individually either. The snack shops and filling stations all seem to be pushing a big national brand (I forget which) copy of the old Chipwich (which I remember was sold from street carts in NYC).

          It's It was invented at Playland at the Beach, a long-gone Ocean Beach amusement park here in SF that was replaced by a dreary condo development. I see It's It in every grocery store in multiple packs. What good is just one if you love 'em? Laughing Sal, an automaton (correct term?) that greeted Playland visitors with a maniacal laugh, has recently been bought by the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

          The problem for me is the oatmeal cookies they use include raisins and clove. No, thank you.

          They will still be here the next time you visit. After all, once you've been here, how long can you stay away from the city where "little cable cars climb halfway to the stars"?

            "But, wait--there's more!"

            We stopped at a rest stop on I-5 northbound somewhere between Highway 46 and where you head west to the Bay Area last Saturday. They had a vending machine for ice cream novelties, and there it was--"It's It."
