Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
As a young boy, Gus Shamieh remembers coming home from practice to the smell of freshly baked cookies. With the churn of his mother’s creamy homemade ice cream, and baking of soft buttery cookies, the ice cream sandwich was born. In 2010, Jimmy and Gus Shamieh led the Shamieh family in opening the first CREAM location in Berkeley, California. Working the store from open to close, the Shamieh family started serving happiness one ice cream sandwich at a time. The goodness travelled fast enticing families from all over the San Francisco Bay Area to visit. Some travelled hours just to get a taste of the buzz.
While ice cream sandwiches are what made us famous, we knew we couldn’t stay there. Our super premium ice cream was to good to only have in between cookies. The taste buds of our guests demanded we evolve into sundaes, milkshakes, cakes, and pints and we were happy to deliver!
