It's-It Ice Cream Sandwiches At Mariano's
There I was, perusing the ice cream novelty section over at the Westmont Mariano's when I see a little box on one of the shelves. It couldn't be? Could it? It's-it? For real? Here in the Midwest? Sure enough! I grabbed a box and scurried to the checkout line. Proud of myself for bringing home this sweet treat. When I got home, I showed them off to Natalie who wasn't as impressed as I was with myself.
These are more than novelties. To me. They put me in a specific place. In a specific time in my life.
There's only one place that I have ever had It's-It ice cream sandwiches: the main Google cafeteria from 2007 to 2013. Back in the childless days of our lives, Nat came out to Mountain View with me and (apparently) ate at the Google Cafeteria. Because she remembers having an It's-It then.
This box is a three pack and it is outrageously priced. But, time and place transportation isn't cheap, right?
So, am I the last to know that Mariano's carries these? Turns out, all the way back in April of 2016, It's-It posted on their Instagram handle the news:
These three didn't last long. I'll have to go back to pick up a few more boxes soon.
