At Baker Bear their original-recipe craft ice cream (Bear Batter, Birthday Cake, Mint Chip and more) is sandwiched between freshly-based cookies, brownies or donuts—guests can even mix or match their top and bottom. Then the sandwiches can be rolled through toppings including Fruity Pebbles, Oreo crumbs, Nutella, Heath bar bits and more. To top it off they are hot pressed to warm it all up. With nearly a dozen locations in California (home-base in San Diego) and locations in Utah, Arizona, Nevada and Oklahoma, The Baked Bear at Pike & Rose will be the first outlet on the East Coast. Cookies are baked fresh from scratch each day and Baked Bear craft ice cream is made with an all-natural mix with rBGH-free cream and pure cane sugar.
