Walked in on a hot summer day and there was a short line. You are given max of 3 samples of any flavors. There are a mixture of asian flavors as well as the usual flavors. All of the flavors are delicious and creamy. If you intend to get 3 single scoops, its cheaper to get the "Your's truely" which... More

It was a hot summer day and what better treat than ice cream. It has been in business 95 years. Every flavor I tested was soooo creamy good. The fresh peach ice cream was very tasty according to those that chose that flavor. I chose mocha almond fudge. Yummy!!

After a recent sad week of memorial services for my mother, my 94 year old dad said, "let's get milkshakes". We learned he has been sneaking mom out of a skilled nursing room for a milk shake once a week at Fosselmans, just a few blocks from their retirement center. I got a Rocky Road shake, the real thick old... More

This is the best ice cream I've ever had, and I've had a lot. It's sweet, of course, but not so sweet that you don't taste the cream. And not only does it taste like real cream, it feels creamy too. Not gummy like some mass market brands, not chalky like others, and not slippery like shortening, but creamy like... More

Old Fashioned, real creamy ice cream in old fashioned setting where one can get sundaes, splits, malts, and almost any other kind of frozen dessert imaginable. If you are on a diet, don't even tempt yourself. This place is impossible to resist.

You don't stay in business for 95 years by putting out mediocre product, and Fosselman's delivers ultra-premium ice cream in an interesting variety of flavors. The back story on this family owned business is that they hailed from Iowa, veterans of the dairy business who brought their old fashioned creamery equipment with them. They are still using it today, making... More

Delicious old-fashioned neighborhood ice cream parlor. We visit a few times a year for the seasonal ice cream such as pumpkin and licorice. Fresh ice cream and I think it is still a family business.

A great family location with delicious, homemade ice cream treats. This ice cream parlor has been around for at least 50 years and there are always a crowd of happy customers.

Because the ice cream is made with fresh and natural ingredients, in small batches, every spoonful or lick is like a little bit of heaven (seriously). Peace.
