Over the weekend, I visited some friends at OU in Norman. While Norman’s choices of restaurants don’t even compare to Dallas, there was one particular place I wanted to try. It is an ice cream shop called The Baked Bear. The Baked Bear specializes in custom ice cream sandwiches. Customers can pick between cookies, brownies and donuts to be used as the outside of their sandwiches with a wide array of ice cream flavors to go in-between. I ordered the funfetti cookies with chocolate in the middle and it was amazing. While I love a good Sprinkles sundae, Baked Bear has it beat. The cookies were perfectly warm and gooey but not too much and the ice cream was the perfect amount of melty goodness. The Baked Bear just recently opened their store in Norman and have many other locations in California, Arizona, and Utah. Unfortunately no locations in Dallas (yet), but I’m sure that they are soon to come.
