AFTERS Handcrafted Ice Cream

After three attempts to get Afters Handcrafted Ice Cream, I was finally able to get some! The first three times I went, the line was ridiculously long and my friends were not willing to wait.

My BFF, best foodie friend aka best frenemy friend aka Briana, and I went at an off hour like 3 or 4PM. The wait was about 15 to 20 minutes. The line was still out the door but not as bad as when it’s prime time like after dinner time.

If you’re not familiar with AFTERS, it’s basically an ice cream donut sandwich shop. They’re not just regular Dreyer’s ice cream but they’re uniquely flavored. For example some of their most popular ones include Almond Cookie, Cookie Butter, Cookie Monster, Jasmine Milk Tea, and Milk & Cereal.

Briana and I probably tried about 5 samples and they were all really good. We had a hard time deciding what to get. We both ended up getting two of the most popular ones on the menu.

I got the Cookie Monster with sprinkles in a milky bun. The first topping is free topping and as for the milky bun, it’s a few extra bucks. The milky bun is a regular glazed donut under a fancy name. In total, the ice cream sandwiched in the milky bun costs $5.40.

Briana got the Jasmine Milk Tea with the milky bun.

They were both really good! The Cookie Monster was just like the the cookies ‘n cream flavor. The Jasmine Milk Tea had the smooth and light flavor just like the boba drink.


It was definitely an overkill with the sweets. I think my sugar level went up drastically after one bite. It gets pretty darn rich with the ice cream and donut together. It’s best if you get the ice cream alone because that in itself is heavy or go halfsies on the ice cream with milky bun.

You can just get the ice cream by itself in a bowl or cone. One scoop is $3.50, two scoops is $5, and three scoops is $6. The quality of the ice cream is uniquely handmade that it’s more on the pricey end.

Would I go here again? Eh, I wouldn’t go out of my way next time. I want to give it another chance just with ice cream by itself. No milky bun, please, no.

I’m glad that I was able to check this place out though. I was curious about it because everyone was posting it on social media! I can finally check this off my foodie list.

Thanks Briana for checking this place out with me during your short visit in SoCal! It’s always fun to try something new with you! I’m looking forward to more foodie adventures with you!
