When visiting a new town it’s fun to sample their signature foods. In San Francisco, sour dough bread, seafood and donuts are but a few. I was surprised to read in Eater and other blogs that one noteworthy food is available at the corner store. It’s It are a San Francisco tradition dating back to 1928. They do delicious takes on the humble ice cream sandwich. Their original is an ice cream sandwich made of 2 oatmeal cookies, vanilla ice cream in the middle and dipped in chocolate. Other flavors include chocolate, cappuccino and the one pictured, mint. At only $2, it was a great deal. The mint ice cream was refreshing and I love how the oatmeal cookies retain their softness.
Unfortunately, the ice cream isn’t available outside of California and surrounding states (though for $50 shipping or so, you can get it over nighted to you). Have you tried this tasty treat?
