Baked Bear: Blessing San Diego with two new locations!
Winter is officially here, and much of the country is getting hammered by blinding snow storms and crippling cold temperatures. Here in San Diego, though, residents and visitors are blessed with warm and sunny days all year round.
When out and about the beautiful city, what better way is there to indulge oneself on these beautiful days than enjoying a sweet and tasty treat?
We all scream for ice cream!
Ice cream sandwiches have become increasingly popular in San Diego, and there is no better place to enjoy this delectable dessert treat than The Baked Bear.
The Baked Bear, on 4516 Mission Blvd., Suite C in their Pacific Beach location, has taken the ever-popular ice cream sandwich, and has raised it up to dizzying, delightful heights.
Touted by the national publication Zagat in June 2014 as a "Must-Try" and one of San Diego's "Coolest Ice Cream Sandwiches", their menu provides a wide variety of delicious items, enabling the customer to customize their own dessert selection.
When considering what to order, the customer might first persuse the cookie selection. The cookie flavors are: Cookie of the Month, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Chip, Funfetti, Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip, M&M, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter, Snicker Doodle, and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut.
It's not just your standard sandwich
For the ice cream sandwich, the top and bottom can be one favorite cookie, or for a nice change of pace, the top and bottom can be mixed and matched. Perhaps 2 different cookies. Or to really change things up, add a waffle, brownie or donut into the mix.
It's then time to select the ice cream, with 12 amazing flavors to choose from: Birthday Cake, Butter Pecan, Chocolate, Coffee, Cookie Dough, Cookies & Cream, Mint Chip, Peanut Butter Fudge, Rocky Road, Strawberry Cheesecake, Strawberry and Vanilla.
And to make the ice cream sandwich complete, the following toppings are offered: Almonds, Caramel, Hot Fudge, Mint Chocolate Chips, Mini M&Ms, Oreo Crumbs, Sprinkles or Whipped Cream.
It's not just ice cream sandwiches here
The Baked Bear also sells individual cookies, and has special prices set for 6 or 12 cookie purchases. Individual brownies are also available for purchase.
For more conventional tastes, ice cream can be purchased in cone or cup, with 1, 2, or 3 scoops.
Other featured items are the Hot Fudge Sundae (with the choice of 1 cookie, brownie, or waffle) and the Bear Bowl, which is a warm chocolate chip cookie bowl with 1 scoop of any ice cream flavor.
For customers that would like to share The Baked Bear taste experience with others, prepackaged ice cream sandwiches are available for order. The freshly baked cookies and any variety of ice cream are available for pickup, and are a bit hit at office parties, birthday parties, and smaller events.
The Baked Bear also features a catering service, coming right to the customer's location of choice. 2 trained staff members will bring out their catering cart, with 4 ice cream and cookie flavors to choose from, custom-made to order for each person.
