ISO Lemon Custard Ice Cream

Dear Hounds:

I live in the Fairfax District, and would like to know where I can find Lemon Custard Ice Cream. Maybe in the Farmer's Market? Any ideas or assistance will be very much appreciated.

Thank you,

  1. Not in your neighborhood, but I saw it at Fosselman's in Alhambra last night.

      The lemon custard at Fosselman's is the best flavor ever. I don't eat ice cream anymore but I can still taste it. YUM.

      Fosselman's Ice Cream Co
      1824 W Main St, Alhambra, CA 91801

        Thanks so much, Monku and Swtcrm, but I don't want to drive all the way to Alhambra for an ice cream cone, though I may be forced to do it if I can't get my Lemon Custard fix pretty soon.

        Baskin-Robbins used to have Lemon Custard when I was a child, and now it's just a "regional flavor". It was always my favorite, and I ALWAYS got the same flavor when my father took us to the Baskin-Robbibns on LaCienega just north of Pico Blvd., and later on South Robertson. Now, when my sister and I take her kids to the store on South Robertson, we always reminisce about our childhood flavors (my sister's was Daiquiri Ice at Baskin-Robbins).

        We had different favorites at different places. At the Swenson's that used to be in Marina Del Rey, we used to share a sundae, my Hagen Dazs favorite was always strawberry; but I always wish I could taste that Lemon Custard again. The last time I had it was as an undergraduate student, more than twenty years ago, at a Baskin-Robbins in New Orleans East (probably lost to Katrina).

        My baby turned one yesterday, and we had to reschedule his birthday party this Saturday because we were afriad he would still be contagious. Now that we know he is no longer contaigious, maybe I'll take him for his first scoop to Fosselman's (just so Mommy can have a scoop of Lemon Custard)!

        Wow, I guess I really went on and on with some of my ice cream memories here! It can be such an emotional topic (smile).

        Thanks again,

          I had the fresh peach which was excellent.

            Monku, for me that flavor is an entirely different memory... of my Aunt Cherie making homemade ice cream from fresh peaches on the Fourth of July, first in the hand-cranked ice cream maker, and later in the automatic one. We always ate it with my mom's home-baked peach cobbler, and there was never enough ice cream to satisfy everyone! Thanks for stirring up such beautiful memories!

            It will be worth the drive!

            Take the 10 to Fremont Ave. Go north on Fremont, right on Mission, left on Palms, right on Main. You'll be there in no time :)

            I'll keep my eyes open for a closer to you lemon custard too!

      2. Okay... this SO might get me kicked out the board, but I really dig the Dreyers Toy Story Lemon Ice Cream. Frozen Dairy Product be damned.... it's GOOODDD!!

          Dreyer's has put DAIRY PRODUCT back into their frozen desserts? Wow!!!

          1. re: jackattack

            No... I was just being sarcastic... It's a light ice cream, which some would say is not REAL ice cream.... Still, the list of ingredients would still get me disapproving stares from Michael Pollan
