If you live in the area, you must know about Fosselman's. If you are ice cream lovers like me, you will go to Fosselman's. When you walk in the store, it's like traveling back in time. Besides ice cream, they sell candies and cards too. The store has been in business for almost 100 years, all homemade ice cream. They... More

Their ice is so good, other ice cream shops in Southern California buy from them and sell it in their shops.

If you're out here for the Rose bowl and smart enough to not stay in an overprice Pasadena hotel, Alhambra is a good close spot to choose. Plus the Asian restaurant selections are better and less crowded. Fosselman's is a great place in the summer for some good ice cream... I like the classic Dutch chocolate but they also have... More

I've been enjoying Fosselman's wonderful ice cream for 50+ years, and it has never disappointed. Even if it weren't the best ice cream around, I would support the place because I believe strongly in taking my business to family-owned, independent businesses in my home town (Alhambra). But, Fosselman's always has outshined every other place around . . . AND has... More

Service was great, we sampled several of their custom flavor creations. The only thing I was not satisfied with was they did not take credit... More

Fosselman's Ice Cream, since 1919 is probably one of my favorite ice cream spots. I first learned about Fosselman's on "California's Gold" with Huel Howser. I'm quite the ice cream connoisseur, and how I describe what sets Fosselman's Ice Cream apart from others is how 'clean' and crisp the milk/cream is in their recipe which helps make each flavor stand...
