Review: Fosselman's Ice Cream Company (Alhambra)

Updated: Sep 16, 2020


Looking for classic, old-fashioned ice cream? This is it.


Welcome to Fosselman's in Alhambra, ladies and gentlemen. This store has been serving up ice cream for 100 years. The ice cream is delicious, real quality. I am told this is the oldest ice cream shop in Los Angeles.


A 100-year traditional recipe is what separates this ice cream from so many others.



We visited this store on a hot summer day. It was the perfect solution to the heat. I think my complaint was TOO MANY FLAVORS! But that's a good problem to have.


We got a parking spot right in front of the store but there was still a line outside. Lots of locals here, it is definitely a popular store. Just look at the colors and flavors. Just amazing.


Last year, Fosselman's celebrated their 100th year, and I am sure they are here to stay.


If you are a LA-local, you have definitely had their ice cream somewhere. You may not have visited one of their two retail shops, but these folks have 500 wholesale clients!


Retro by design, this reasonably-priced ice cream shop is definitely a LA-must visit.
