What ever happened to the good old days? Ice cream was a quarter, soda was a nickel. So simple. Fosselman’s is a classic ice cream shop, like the ones they had in the olden days. We are talking about the classics. They date back since 1919. They definitely are an old-fashioned soda fountain. They offer seltzer made sodas, taffy, and amazing ice cream concoctions. Entering, you are brought back to simpler times. The wooden fixtures and flooring really bring you back in time. This, in a sense, makes the ice cream taste that much better.
Their ice cream is like no other. It is creamy and thick. And most importantly, it is delicious. After trying so many flavors, I chose dulce de leche and cappuccino. My friend didn’t like the taro so he gave me his. The taro was actually really good, one of my favorites. Their flavors range from the classics, to exotic ones like horchata and chocolate covered strawberries. Besides the flavor, the texture of the ice cream is that stands out. It is rich and creamy. It has the perfect consistency. Not too soft, not too hard. Perfect.
Fosselman’s is truly a gem in Alhambra. It is very unassuming amongst the car dealerships on Main Street. They offer traditional and classic style ice cream from an ice cream parlor. They don’t take card and is cash only. Lucky for me, my friend paid because I didn’t have cash. It seems to be that the good places only take cash. Anyways, this is officially the best ice cream ever. Try it, and be happy you did.
