Wow, after 55 years living in the area, I finally made to Fosselman's. I was not disappointed. It was very good. Would I drive 5 miles for ice cream no, we happened to be in the area. The best? It's very very good. I am still sampling. haha

I have been here a few times and have never been that impressed. The ice cream is too icy and not creamy enough for me. The parking is also really tough. It is really hard to turn around, and it is usually full. It is sometimes easier to just park on the street and walk. It also gets crowded on... More

I don't understand why everyone's so excited about this place. Ice cream is nothing special, I've tasted some much better in other places. Besides the mediocre quality it's also overpriced . If you're craving for ice cream and this place is close to your place then go, otherwise look for a better place for example in Pasadena o LA

Visited Fosselmans last night. Stopped in to pick up an ice cream cake for my brother's birthday. I have been going here my whole life. I always compare other ice cream brands to this place. I can say I rarely find a place that has the same quality, smooth and creamy flavor of Fosselman's. A few of my favorite flavors...mango,... More

Delicious ice cream and generous servings. Not only are they friendly with customers, but they also help out the surrounding schools by donating gift certificates. I highly recommend this place.

Okay, so it was fine. Just as good as you would get at 31 flavors or anywhere else. Not really worth the trip. There are so many amazing dessert options in Pasadena, Alhambra and the surrounding cities.

You must visit this ice cream place with your love one if you ever come by the area. My husband and I have become regular to spend some sweet moment every Friday.

This ice cream parlor has been there forever. You walk into the place and you feel like you are back in time, an old-fashioned decor. Sweet! They have many flavors of ice cream. The quality is definitely tops! We usually go there after dining out in the area. It is a must for an after dinner treat and any time... More

We came in w/ a large party. The girl behind the counter had a bad attitude and very clearly did not want to talk to me. They hustled us trough the line and I got a really unfriendly vibe from the staff overall. Icecream is good but staff is not friendly, haven't seen them smile yet.
