Pasadena - Afters Ice Cream

When I asked co-workers if they've heard of
Afters Ice Cream, they gave me a blank stare.

I mentioned that maybe some of their friends had
posted pictures of the milky bun from Orange County,
still nothing.

Another person overheard my description
and said "ice cream donut!"
and then heads started nodding and smiles emerged.

Well, the 'ice cream donut' has arrived
in Pasadena!

 Afters Ice Cream owners (from L)
David Ly, Scott Nghiem, and Andy Nguyen
opening their 5th location in Pasadena.

I've visited the original Afters' location in
Fountain Valley and had their ice cream
on a few occasions.

A wide range of flavors and toppings,
a very popular late night sweet snack.

A couple of blocks East of Pasadena City College
on Green Street
and just North of Cal Tech,
it doesn't get any sweeter...

Located at the old 'Motordogs' location.
I mentioned to the owners, although I miss
Motordogs' fries, I'm glad that the milky bun
is closer to home...

What do I order?
Their signature Milky Bun,
glazed or un-glazed,
that IS the question...

If you can't decide on which ice cream flavor,
you can order it "half and half" with two
different flavors for an additional 50 cents.

Cookie Monster ice cream
is vanilla, chocolate chip cookies, and fudge.
Oh and bright blue.
This one is topped with fruity pebbles.

If the Milky Bun isn't your thing,
don't worry, they also serve
scoops of ice cream too.
