Bert & Rocky's Cream Company - Claremont

Bert & Rocky's Cream Company - Claremont 1

KiwiBear - Claremont wasn't able to survive the frozen yogurt craze, but good old ice cream shops like Bert & Rocky's Cream Company are still going strong.

These photos are from April 2007. I know! What can I say? Things get lost in the queue.

Hmm. It's been so long I can't even remember where we ate beforehand, and you know how I like to keep track of when and where I've eaten and with whom I ate it. I at least remembered which friend I was with at the time. :P Anyway, after lunch with my friend, we stopped off at Bert & Rocky's for dessert.

She got a raspberry, although I don't know why I don't have that photo. So unlike me!

I got green tea ice cream. I've had Bert & Rocky's other flavors, mainly chocolate and the usual American flavors and enjoyed them, but this green tea was all wrong. I should've asked for a sample first, but I didn't think they could mess up green tea.

They also make their own chocolates.

And sell lots of other candies as well. I've never seen so many colors of M&Ms before!

And who in their right minds would want to eat candy rats or tarantulas?!

My dad bought me violet candies when I was a kid. I've rarely see them for sale.

  1. hi wc - did you like the taste of the violet candies? violet is not usually a flavor a kid would like. just curious. glad to know that this mom and pop place survived. i would rather go to those types of ice cream shops than baskins or cold stone.

  2. Ugh! Green tea ice cream is always good, that's too bad :(

  3. CC,
    I did, but not at first. The violet candies grew on me.

    It usually is. That's why I didn't think I had to taste test this.
