The best ice cream ever

Ice cream doesn't get any better than this! We drive 25 minutes just to get the yummiest ice cream in the Hartford area. It is creamy, delicious and amazing! If you find yourself anywhere near Simsbury CT you must stop by and try the best ice cream around.

It was a few months back that I went to j fosters for the first time and I am now a frequent regular. Unique flavors and awesome service. If you have a chance to I highly suggest a visit.

I went j. Fosters ice cream when they were in the Connecticut building at the eastern states exposition in springfield Massachusetts. They had several unique flavors including maple bacon. The texture is smooth and creamy and the flavors are evenly balanced. Because they have so many unique flavors,even with free samples, it's difficult to choose which one to enjoy.

A lot of sit-down space for an ice-cream parlor. Friendly service, very tasty flavors (Graham Central Station was a big hit) and good-sized portions for a single scoop.

We were looking for deliciousness of ice cream and nailed it. Big selection and even the petite size was more than enough.

Whenever we are in the area and its in season, we will always go out of our way to make a stop at J. Foster Ice Cream. (it's as if our stomaches have taken over the steering wheel or at least that's what I tell the "Weight Watcher" folks.) Anyway, as stated by other reviewers, J. Foster's is independently owned,...

Love J Foster's Ice cream. It is so creamy and rich, with no artificial flavorings - how all ice cream should be made! My favorite flavors are Rosehips, Cashew Caramel and the Kahlua. They also have run of the mill flavors, such as mint chocolate chip and vanilla. Don't get me wrong though, these are just as luxurious as the... More

It has been a long, dark and dreary winter with J Foster closed. I am soo soo happy that they opened this weekend. Made it in tonight for a touch of Graham Central. This is a must go place if you are anywhere near Avon or Simsbury. Independently owned and operated and made in USA, this the kind of business... More

I've only been to the Avon store. I really like the fact that this is a local, independent business. Despite my preference for that, this outfit makes great ice cream. No .... delicious ice cream. If you are in the Farmington Valley for any reason, stopping by J. Foster is a must, an absolute must. Personally, I am partial to... More
