(Los Angeles, CA) - When you want that old-school scoop of ice cream in a cone as you loved as a child, there’s only one place you need to go in Los Angeles.

If you are a local of the San Gabriel Valley, you will know the one ice cream parlor in business since 1919, and that's Fosselman's Ice Cream Parlor.

The mom and pop family parlor have stuck true to their roots and helped keep family traditions alive.

This lovely neighborhood shop has a rich history and is everything that an old-school ice cream shop should be.

The original store has been open since 1919 in Alhambra. Back in the day, Fosselman’s would deliver dairy and milk by truck to your door, if you can remember back to when that was a thing!

Fosselman's still offers an array of delicious old-fashioned ice cream flavors while also adding new and innovative flavors when in season.

Whether you enjoy a scoop or two of their classic ice cream or try one of their tasty new flavors, their friendly, family-owned business offers great value for money.
