Try the pretzel cone,

While visiting Cincinnati I got a nice cream craving so we drove to Graeter's. I got a dip of delicious mint chocolate chip in a chocolate dipped pretzel cone. The touch of salt really enhances the sweetness.

I'm a native so I admit my review is biased. Nonetheless I believe Graeter's is the best ice cream you will ever taste. If you are visiting do yourself a favor and stop by.
