tasty things in life: chocolate dipped cones from fosters freeze

I have fond memories of going to the Fosters Freeze in Spring Valley with my parents. I can remember the ride there from our house, through the side streets, before the 125 freeway ever existed. Sometimes on our home way from Kmart (or just a special trip out there), we’d stop by Fosters Freeze for some ice cream and this was my favorite thing to get:

A chocolate dipped cone! And this is the small cone, my friends. The large is SUPER TALL. I had enough trouble as it was eating this one quickly enough before it broke through the shell.

I did manage to break through before a major meltdown.

The Spring Valley location is still there! I went to their other location in Allied Gardens to obtain this cone though. It’s just not the same when you get it from the El Pollo Loco/Fosters Freeze. They skimp on the soft serve there. Boo.

Jake and I enjoyed treats there last weekend when it was SUPER DUPER HOT. A nice adieu to the summer and a fun little revisit to my past.

What was your favorite cooling off treat this summer?

  1. Sadly, I’ve never had a Foster’s Freeze (runs quickly to hide), but I hope to change all that soon!

    I remember passing by this place randomly (since I got lost) while trying to get to Coop’s. My daughter would totally love that chocolate dipped cone (especially the poo swirl at the top)!

    Haha, the poo swirl! It’s good stuff. Similar to Dairy Queen, but I prefer Foster’s… probably due to childhood nostalgia!
