Re:Mar52 and I make our final PIT STOP of the day ..... FOSSELMAN'S !!!! Sat, 08/22/09 6:00 PM (permalink)
Greetings, Marlene!

How much do you have to pay for a "Kugel Eis" (Scoop of Ice Cream) over in the USA...?

Most of the italian Ice Cream Parlors here in Germany sell one Ball of Ice Cream for 1,- Euro, ******* rip-of merchants!

In my childhood, in the 1960s, a ball of icecream was -.10 Pfennig (5 Euro Cents)

Verdammte Eis-Piraten...!

Icy Regards from Germany

Michael

       A chain of Ice Cream Parlors that were in many of the SoCal Malls a generation ago (now long gone) were "Helen Grace's"   Excellent products !

        Looks like you can still get their ice cream toppings:

          Handel's?  Thanks, Jack!

          I'll have to make it a stop on my next trip down the I10.

          I love ice cream!

          Price range for a single scoop at a premium shop runs between $3 and $4 American dollars which are worth about.....

          Woops, won't go there.

            Tin Lizzy Cheesecake Chunk and Bananas Foster.

            I may have to go to Handel's tomorrow!

            Funny that the only California location is in Upland.  I'd never heard of them.

                Thanks Engine Capt!
                I'm also looking forward to trying Handel's as well ...
                Marlene and I will give UPLAND the respect it DESERVES!
                UPLAND, Ca. where you can get great beef ribs, and homemade ice cream to wash it all down !!!!

                  I eagerly await your and Marlene's opinion of Handel's. It's popular here in the IE, but it still has to pass the the test of Roadfood's Dynamic Duo of Prandial Delights.

                    Jack, you've got a deal.

                    Maybe after the fair.

                    I've got to get some good walking shoes.

                    Last year I thought I was going to die from the pain in my feet and I didn't do the fair any justice at all.

                      I know the feeling. I gave my knees to the fire department. Even going to the grocery store is a painful ordeal if I have a lot of shopping to do.

                            This report has been a lot of fun to do........thanks for all the fun follow up !!
                            A perfect ending would be if I could post the BIG version of me gnawing on that beef rib..
                            still working on that ; it was showing up as "wrong file type" when I tried to put it on my Roadfood Insiders Page..
                            (looks like the copy you e-mailed me was much bigger than my normal sized pics)
                             
                            Mar52, you are such a fun Roadfood gal pal!!
                            Same time , next year ?!?   Or ASAP !!!
                             
                            You and I put UPLAND on the Roadfood MAP !!

                              P.S.  And your  "thumbs down" agreement with me  regarding FOSSELMAN'S was a real good feeling .... you were'nt afraid to express your opinion..                                              I'm not the ONLY one that did'nt care for Fosselman's..  I'm not NUTS, after all  !!

                                    I truly enjoyed your reports, Marlene and Ellen. Sorry you did not like Fosselman's but I will admit that I claim no special knowledge of ice cream. My personal favorites are Oregon brands Tillamook and Umqua, high butterfat wonderfully rich and very local. I enjoyed Upland a great deal because of Engine Captain and hope someday to return to the area.

                                      Hi Mr. Chips,

                                      Next time that you're in Upland I might be able to get away from work and meet you for a meal.  I'd like that and I'd hope that Jack could join us.

                                      We didn't dislike Fosselman's.  We just didn't think it was out of the ordinary taste wise.

                                      I also love the high butterfat home churned ice cream.  We used to have a place in Venice called Robin Rose and that was the end all ice cream ever with both taste and richness.

                                      Too bad the rents are too high in the Los Angeles area to let the little, wonderful, Mom and Pop type of winning places survive.

                                      If you and the misses are back at Fosselman's I'd be happy to return for another flavor!

                                        If possible, I'd like to join the trek to Handel's in Upland, too! 

                                        My favorite no-longer-here ice cream parlor is Robin Rose.  It used be across the street from the Rose Cafe in Venice, CA.  Their ice cream was the richest, most intense I've ever had (their signature flavor was raspberry chocolate truffle, and they had to sue Baskin Robbins when they came out with a rip-off flavor).  Sigh!

                                          Robin Rose's raspberry chocolate truffle will always be the taste/flavor/richness I try to find.  It's the brass ring that no one else has ever reached.  Ummmmmm

                                          Pilar, if that trek to Handel's ever occurs you can ride with me!

                                          I love ice cream.

                                              Thank you so much for this report and in particular the details about Joey's Barbeque.  I was in Ontario for a couple of days last week on a business trip to Southern California.  I did not have a lot of time for visiting RF places but did get to Joey's one night.  I went to the one on Foothills Boulevard closer to Ontario, not the one that you two went to.  (It had a sign "Now Open," making me think it's a new location).  The service was extremely friendly, and the food was great.  I was not super hungry and so ordered a lunch portion of baby back ribs with the homemade potato chips and barbeque beans.  All were very good.  Having ordered a small meal because I was not very hungry, I decided to have dessert.  The bread pudding was outstanding - very tasty and a good size portion that I could not finish.  Thanks again for the recommendation - it made for some good eating during my hectic trip.  (And the two stops at In-N-Out did not hurt either).

                                                Glad to hear that you like'd Joey's.

                                                I've been going there since before they became a small chain.
