Mountain Biking and "It's-It" (7:365)

Today my sister and I tried mountain biking for the first time ever. Our friend Cindi (whom I've know since we were both 8 years old) took us to some trails in Sammamish, Washington. She is an experienced biker and let us borrow her gear and showed us some basic skills so we wouldn't immediately crash. We had a lot of fun and survived without injury. Being in a Northwest forest reminded me how beautiful it is here and how much I miss trees! It was fun and a beautiful environment that made it a great and memorable experience. Thanks Cindi!

Then later tonight Sarah, Scott and I went to Target in Redmond. There we happened upon this little gem.

I noticed it's new and unique packaging as I walked by the freezer section, browsing the ice cream selection, but was immediately turned off by it's combination of Mint Chocolate Ice Cream and Oatmeal Cookie exterior. YUCK!

Boy, was I in for a scrumptious surprise! I like mint ice cream, but usually only the Blue Bunny brand, finding most others to be too sweet. And I don't like oatmeal cookies, especially with the dreaded raisin in it. But the combination of mint ice cream, a cinnamony oatmeal cookie covered in dark chocolate was simply divine!

If you happen upon this delectable delight in your freezer isle, please do not hesitate to grab and devour.

  1. I grew up on It's-It bars. I'm so glad you discovered them. I miss them here in AZ. They are based in San Francisco, so I just buy them every time I am home. Also, seek out the basic vanilla and chocolate...vanilla is my favorite.
    Impressed by your biking outing too! I hope all is well with you and your family.


I love your comments! Thanks for making my day!
