Just in time for the triple-digit weather, San Diego's The Baked Bear will open its first Arizona store. Known for its build-you-own ice cream sandwiches, The Baked Bear will be located just east of Scottsdale Road on Shea Boulevard in the Village at Shea at 7366 East Shea Boulevard.
The sweet shop will open its doors to the public on Saturday, May 28 — and from 1 to 3 p.m., The Baked Bear will be giving away free ice-cream sandwiches. That's right, free. As in, you can sink your teeth into a chocolate ice cream and Funfetti cookie sandwich for the super-affordable price of nothing.
If you're not familiar with The Baked Bear, the shop got its start in Pacific Beach, California, and offers more than a dozen different ice cream flavors and more than a dozen flavors of cookies. Oh, and if you don't like cookies (first of all, why not?), that's okay, because you can also make an ice-cream sandwich with brownies or donuts. And to polish up your creation, you can choose from toppings such as hot caramel and brownie bits.
The Baked Bear in Scottsdale will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
