The Baked Bear will celebrate opening its first Arizona location by giving away free ice cream sandwiches from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 at the eatery, 7366 E. Shea Blvd.

The Baked Bear features made-to-order ice cream sandwiches. Original cookie recipes are baked from scratch and served fresh daily with homemade ice cream from the highest quality ingredients, according to a press release.

“The positive response we’ve already received about our opening in Scottsdale has been overwhelming,” said Rob Clark, co-owner of The Baked Bear Scottsdale, in a prepared statement. “People are hungry to have the homemade ice cream sandwiches they’ve come to love while on vacation, right here at home.”

Customers at the establishment, which started in San Diego, can choose between more than a dozen different ice cream flavors, and lots of varieties of cookies, including chocolate chip, with both a regular and a gluten free version, red velvet, cookies and cream, snicker doodle, funfetti and white chocolate macadamia nut.

Ice cream sandwich enthusiasts can mix and match different flavors of cookies, brownies and even donuts to create their ideal sandwich and can finish their creation with one of 10 toppings, including hot caramel and brownie bits.

The Baked Bear will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday; and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday. The Scottsdale site is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs and business partners Rob Clark and Anthony Velez.
