A Valley Kid’s Guide to: Dessert

First off, I’d like to formally apologize for neglecting this blog as long as I did BUT here’s a sweet treat for you all. I mentioned before that I wanted to do a sort of Valley Kid’s Guide series pertaining to where you can get certain types of food in the San Fernando Valley. This is meant for those who still want to go out with friends but don’t want to drive too far 🙂

Good-Zooky

IMG_9564.jpeg

God bless, Chelo Creamery. This wonderful creation was concocted by a new creamery out in Rowland Heights. Each Chelo Roll creation is around $6.50. This one is called the Good-Zooky, consisting of green tea matcha, red bean, and mochi. There are a variety of other flavors, one of which I want to try next time that’s made up of Dragonfruit, Jackfruit, and Chia Seeds; another that is strawberry and cheesecake; and another that is chocolate and oreos!

What sets Chelo apart is that the ice cream is formed into rolls. To make said rolls, they use a liquid form of the ice cream flavor and pour it onto a frozen coldstone. And you can watch this video to watch the magic that is Chelo ice cream (I really thought I could import the video but I was wrong LOL).

The consistency is super creamy and doesn’t melt as fast as you would assume it does. I’ll definitely be back to try more of the flavors 🙂

Can you keep a (Coldstone) secret?

If you guys follow me on snapchat, you already know that I’ve been working at Coldstone Creamery for quite a while–and in my time there, I’ve learned about and concocted a few delicious signature creations not on the official menu. So really… you’re welcome 😉

ice cream is my religion.

Literally. I’m gonna have to break the news to my mom soon, telling her I’m converting from Catholicism… haha, I’m kidding (not really).

Afters ice cream located in Chino Hills was the victim of one of my past ice cream rendezvous. Afters is widely popular on Instagram due to the exposure it’s gotten from many fashion bloggers and professional foodies, but that doesn’t mean it falls short of quality because of all the hype.

Afters ice cream is the original creator of the milky bun–ice cream inside a glazed donut that I hear tastes just like a Krispy Kreme donut! While I did not have the appetite large enough to try one of those bad boys, when they open their new location in Rowland Heights, YOU BET I’LL BE THERE TO TRY IT. When I visited, I got the Jasmine milk tea (pictured) and the Cookie Butter scoop beneath that one. But honestly, all the flavors were so good, I would’ve gotten a scoop of each to-go if it didn’t make me look like such a fattie. Katrina got the Cookie Monster, which was also really good and very ~aesthetic~. Another very popular flavor is the Milk and Cereal. But really… I’m so set on getting that milky bun next time.

While yes, I got a double scoop, that only cost me about $6– a single scoop only costing $3.50. For an ice cream connoisseur like myself, that’s a totally reasonable price (I’ve paid $7 for one scoop at Creamistry…). The employees working there were totally patient even though the line was way out the door, and I wanted to sample like literally every flavor.

And another little plus… the Holy Trinity was working… aka… the three guys working the scooping area were so damn cute ok bye with my thirsty ass BYE

*P.S. When the Rowland Heights location opens, that’ll be the closest to all us SFV inhabitants 🙂
