Furthering the Rivalry June 5, 2007

When you think Yankees and Red Sox you think rivalry.

Intense rivalry.

Rivals on the field.

Rivals in the stands.

Rivals in ice cream?

On my trip to Boston this weekend to historic Fenway, which I’ve actually come to appreciate more in my “older years”, I noticed an ice cream stand outside of the stadium. Walking towards it I expected it to be no other than Dippin Dots, the self proclaimed “ice cream of the future” that is served at Yankee Stadium (which you’ll remember I spoke about a few weeks ago after trying them for the first time). But lo and behold it wasn’t Dippin Dots but something called Itti Bitz.

“Little Bitz of Ice Cream Fun”

What kind of fuckin name is Itti Bitz??? Can you imagine a child asking his mother for Itti Bitz???? Hell no. Asking for some Dots is much cooler! Just see for yourself:

“Yo ma…get me some Itti Bitz”

“Yo ma…get me some Dippin Dots”

Case closed.

So while Fenway by and large has better concessions than Yankee stadium (if you haven’t been, they’ve done tons to improve their concessions in the past few years while Yankee stadium has some of the worst concessions in the league. Average wait time for a beer in Fenway is about 2 minutes. Average wait time in Yankees Stadium about 30 mins. Trust me on that one.) a point in the rivalry does go to the Yankees for better ice cream concession. A small victory for Yanks fans to hang their hats on considering we don’t have much else going for us these days!

In other news, Bridget forwarded me this viral video Bud Light produced called the “Swear Jar”. Pretty funny…employees have to donate a $1 for every swear word they say in the work place, which gets pooled to buy cases of Bud Light.

Pretty funny stuff. Something to implement in your own workplace perhaps???

18. Brent - July 1, 2007

itti bitz is a weird name..but dip n dots is stupider…wtf is dip n dots…theyre dots but what are they dipped in? itti bitz has much better prices and a much better taste too…dip n dots is history..itti bitz is the new hot icecream…

19. Jack Jeckel - July 30, 2007

Itti Bitz do not taste that good. I have tried those, Dippin Dots and Mini Melts. I think Mini Melts are way better. The taste is way creamier. My 2 cents

20. ICE CREAM MAN - October 18, 2007

Thinkin of buying a mini melts franchise.Do you think they are better then dip n dots.

21. chris - October 18, 2007

Ice Cream Man: hmm…tough call…it really depends on where you’re going to station it. I personally have never tried Mini Melts, and of course taste is subject to everyone’s opinion, but i’d say taste them all yourself. All of the flavors. And then honestly decide which one you like best, and that would be your answer on which to purchase as a franchise.
