Is It Any Good?

Really good Ice Cream in Alhambra.

There’s almost nothing one can say about long time Alhambra Favorite, Fosselman’s.

I mean, it’s a favorite, and putting a critical thumb in the eye of a favorite like Fosselman’s is a useless enterprise.

That and the fact there’s really no reason to put a thumb in its eye. It’s really good.

It’s really and olde time Candy and Ice Cream shoppe (and yes, I added the extra P and E). It’s very popular with the neighborhood, and you’ll love it too.

It’s got an explosion of flavors to choose from. You can get a cone, a cup or walk outta there with some of Fosselman’s hand packed in a quart.

It’s good stuff, really good. Not quite as good as Bennett’s at the Farmer’s Market, but not quite as expensive either. At the same time, one usually does not travel long distances for Ice Cream. If you’re hanging out in San Gabriel or Alhambra, odds are you’re not going to drive all the way to the Farmer’s Market, no matter how good the scoop is.

This is a cool treat. Stop by.


WHAT SHOULD I GET?: Well, I went with my new standard: Salted Caramel, which was good…really good, just not as mind blowing as Bennett’s. On the other hand, dear ol’ Dad tried their Peach, and was impressed that he was tasting real chunks of peach, more than what he had at Bennett’s. So, there’s that…


IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP, PEOPLE: The important safety tip is that you should skip on ahead to the Parking section.


PARKING: Good. Kinda. Fosselman’s has their own lot, but on a busy night expect that to fill up fast. You can try the street, but even there, nearby spots fill up fast as well.

Here’s what we did, and I don’t necessarily recommend it, but it might do in a pinch. There’s a bank next door. Plenty of open spots. It was a Saturday Night so the branch was closed and there wasn’t really any business there. The bank has plenty of signs warning off people who might want to park there, but…c’mon who’s gonna know?

Of course, I did just kinda let everyone who reads this know…didn’t I?
