The Baked Bear: Custom Ice Cream Sandwiches

We recently saw this duo on Insider and had to investigate. What we found out, is pure food genius. Here's the story! Childhood friends, Rob Robbins and Shane Stanger, left their careers to follow their true passion: serving up inventive sweets to their home town of San Diego. At The Baked Bear, they assemble monstrous ice cream sandwiches that have won the hearts of locals and drawn accolades from Forbes, Eater, Thrillist, and more.

Original-recipe ice cream sits at the heart of each one of Rob and Shane's sandwiches, which are held together by fresh-baked cookies, brownies, or even donuts (check out the video if you don't believe us). The Baked Bear has over a dozen original-recipe cookies and ice cream flavors, giving guests a chance to mix and match to find their favorite combination. Before they're served, the sandwiches can be rolled through toppings ranging from Fruity Pebbles to Oreo crumble, giving them an Instagram-worthy touch.

It was said that when the doors to The Baked Bear's original location in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood opened for the first time, there was a line out the door. Clearly, a need was being met. Let's call it a need for one of the most amazing ice cream sandwiches on the planet. Preach! Ice cream is great and all, but sometimes it's just better between two cookies (or brownies, as the case may be). The Baked Bear serves crazy combinations including snickerdoodle, funfetti, and waffle cookies, with traditional ice cream options such as rocky road, cookie dough, and strawberry cheesecake. Yum!

Lucky for us, The Baked Bear has plans to expand and have now opened and will open more shops throughout California, Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada and Utah. Still not the east coast but more of an opportunity for us to grab one throughout our travels. If you're ever in the area, stop by to create your one-of-a-kind creation and devour the details of a Baked Bear custom ice cream sandwich then be sure to tell us all about it!
