Yes this is the original Fosselmans sold in restaurants and grocery stores. Their Dark chocolate rocks and wins awards all the time.

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

First time going to this place after my grandpa has been coming here for over 50 years. I had a brownie sundae with cookie coffee and cake cream ice cream. Ice cream was very good. 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...

Fosselman's is by far superior to any other ice cream place. It's fresh and has a wide variety of choices. Your taste buds want the best,and the best is Fosselman's. I've been going there for 28 years and it's always been what anyone would expect-simply DELICIOUS!!!

Have always wanted to try and finally did. Excellent three-scoop serving that, while expensive, was still competitively priced. Counter staff was polite, helpful, and generous with portion and samples. Ice cream was rich and creamy. Lots of interesting flavors! Parking could be challenging if you came on the wrong day, however. Highly recommended for a real treat!

This place brings in plenty of customers during the weekends especially during the summer. Old fashioned made in house ice cream all natural no preservatives.
