Afters Ice Cream
Afters Ice Cream isn’t just a dessert – it’s a movement. This exceptionally sweet Southern California-based brand has made a long-lasting mark in pop culture history as a trendy pioneer in the food culture scene (meaning, it's as Instagrammable as it is tasty!).

The first location of Afters Ice Cream opened in Fountain Valley in February of 2014 -- but today, there are more than 25 successful locations across Southern California and many additional locations slated to open in the future.

There’s also the “milk and cereal,” another favorite -- a vanilla-based ice cream made using the shop’s famous “Afters flakes” mixed in. It’s described as tasting like "a bowl of cereal, but better!
