I don’t think I have ever met anyone who says they don’t like ice cream.
I know in my family it’s a favorite no matter the time of year. Though in summer we do eat a lot more of it. There is just something about summer and ice cream that go hand in hand. Which is why we were so excited to try out a new brand. Well, new to us anyway as it is just now coming to our area.

Graeter’s Ice Cream
Grater’s Ice Cream has been around for 145 years getting its start in 1868 when A young Louis Graeter moves to Cincinnati Ohio to sell ice cream at neighborhood street markets. From there the business would be passed down from generation to generation till now 145 years later we are all still enjoying their delicious ice cream.
The Graeter’s traditional French Pot process is the true magic behind the making of Graeter’s, the world’s finest ice cream. By creating just two gallons at a time, Graeter’s achieves an irresistible creaminess that’s completely unlike any other ice cream.
Graeter’s start by using only the finest ingredients, such as fresh cream and milk from Ohio farms that pledge not to use any artificial growth hormones; 100% cane sugar; egg custard; gourmet chocolate for their signature chocolate chips.
Their custard and flavor bases are VAT-pasteurized to develop the best possible flavor profile. The highest quality all natural ingredients and flavorings are then added to be frozen into 2-gallon batches of ice cream.
Small-batch freezing is what separates Graeter’s from other ice cream manufacturers. They use 2-gallon French Pot freezers, a technology that’s been around for over a century, but long since abandoned and forgotten by the commercial ice cream industry.
Their small batches are then hand-swirled by their dedicated artisans in 2-gallon French Pots. Each 2-gallon batch of ice cream is slowly frozen, resulting in a rich, creamy texture.
And lastly, to get the ice cream into a pint they use one of the most sophisticated pieces of equipment available – a big spoon. On an average day, they hand-pick nearly 20,000 pints!
They are committed to bringing us the finest, creamiest, most deliciously indulgent ice cream in the world. That is why they use only the highest quality ingredients in everything they make. So what does one do with this cold, creamy, frozen treat? Well, you create some amazing summer treats.
Fun Frozen Treats
Creating fun treats can be as simple as a classic sundae with hot fudge. whipped cream and a cherry.
Then there is the traditional root beer float.
However, my favorite treat is the ice cream sandwich because her we can get creative. From your choice of cookie to what flavor ice cream you use. Oh and let’s not forget the sprinkles you can go with whatever you have like leftover Christmas sprinkles to no sprinkles at all.
What is your favorite way to eat ice cream? Do you have a fun way of serving it?
