    Baskin-Robbins is good, but nowhere near as good as Fosselman's. I once did a taste test, using two of my favorite flavors that both stores offer: lemon custard and peppermint stick. I had them first at Baskin-Robbins (the little store in a tiny strip mall just south of Cal State L.A. and north of the San Bernardino freeway) and the next day at Fosselman's. Not only was Fosselman's less expensive, both flavors were much more flavorful. I still like B-R's Cappuccino Blast (it's fine with nonfat vanilla yogurt), and they make some beautiful birthday ice cream cakes. Still, Fosselman's gets my vote because it's 1) an independent shop and 2) it's in Alhambra, where I live.
