Polar Bear Ice Cream - Central Santa Cruz: Frozen Treats at Polar Bear Ice Cream. Choose Between Two Options.

Frozen-treat production was originally the province of Arctic bears, who used sharp claws to shave ice and smashed fruit with ample backsides. Sample nature’s handiwork with today's Groupon to Polar Bear Ice Cream. Choose between two options:

  • For $10, you get $20 worth of frozen treats.
  • For $4, you get $8 worth of frozen treats.

Polar Bear Ice Cream is a family-owned creamery that produces small batches of ice cream using natural ingredients while paying meticulous attention to flavor. Each container is packed and measured by hand, similar to when mailing family members to tropical destinations. Sample luxurious flavors such as the nutty almond mocha fudge or the tropical coconut ($1.50–$6.25). Ice-cream connoisseurs hungering for a hint of sugar and spice can dine on the Mexican chocolate, stolen under the cover of darkness from the dens of the Aztecs. Health nuts and ambling bears can sup on a host of honey-sweetened flavors, including bananas and honey and local Olallieberry, a cross between raspberries, blackberries, and dewberries.

Sequester sorbets in a range of flavors, from georgia peach to wild acai berry, or snatch sherbets in all colors of the rainbow, including Rainbow. Meanwhile, gourmands searching for the perfect dessert or snowmen preparing a scandalous dinner can pick up a pre- or hand-packed ice-cream package, ranging from a pint (pre-packed $4.25; hand-packed $5) to a half-gallon (pre-packed $10).

Polar Bear Ice Cream

Since 1975, Polar Bear Ice Cream's handcrafted their gourmet ice creams in 5-gallon batches. In 2006, the new owners improved upon their ice cream recipe by using as many natural and local ingredients as possible. An inventive roster of over 100 flavors of ice creams, dairy free sorbets, and yogurts is highlighted by varieties such as chocolate brownie batter and toasted almond, all piled up inside hand-made waffle cones, made-to-order specialty cakes, and dairy-free sorbet freezes. Polar Bear’s paws span the entire Santa Cruz landscape, the wholesome treats also available at numerous restaurants and shops.
