San Diego’s beloved ice cream sandwich shop, The Baked Bear, just opened up in Scottsdale. It's the first location outside of California, so naturally you can understand we're just a wee bit excited (translation: it's a big deal.) Back when it opened on May 28, more than 200 ice cream lovers (not kidding) lined up outside to get their hands on one of the famous customizable sandwiches they'd heard so much about.
Well, we tried some of these baked-daily cookie sandwiches and guess what: picking a favorite is pretty damn impossible. There are countless combinations you could dream up, from chocolate ice cream wedged between two halves of a donut, to birthday cake cookies stuffed with birthday cake ice cream and rolled in sprinkles or Fruity Pebbles. Then there's 12 flavors of ice cream (plus a chocolate chip soy option), 10 types of made-from-scratch cookies, brownies, donuts, brownie or cookie bowls, cones, AND eight different types of toppings, including hot fudge and caramel. Seriously, we couldn't decide on the best one. Any thoughts?
