Stay away! Addictive chemicals added to product!! (Teasing!!)

Graeters is Graeters. A Cincy tradition and along with Skyline, a must each time we return here. Chocolate chip still my favorite.

The ice cream is the best. I had a Buckeye Blitz in a pretzel cone. Fabulous! Each month a new flavor is offered. Not only ice cream is served, smoothies, sundaes, milk shakes and malts. Sorbet and gelato is also available. The baked goods and candies are also very special. What a nice treat for special occasions!

Graeters is just in a whole other league when it comes to ice cream. Favorites are mint chip, toffee chip. Tip: sometimes it is cheaper just to buy a pint of it at Kroger. Graeters chocolate is also really yummy.

We love this place! There are several locations around the greater Cincinnati area. It has been a family operation for generations. The ice cream is soooo buttery that sometimes you feel the thick cream on the roof of your mouth after the ice cream is gone. They make their own chocolate too, so the chocolate chip varieties are more like... More

Graeter's Ice Cream is a pillar of the Cincinnati community. I was hooked on the Double Chocolate Chip for years until I was convinced by friends to try the Black Raspberry Chip. I am a definite convert. To regulate my consumption, I like to buy a pint, carry it home and have just a little each day making it last... More

But, to continue on... I LOVE LAS VEGAS MORE THAN CINCY!!!! I would move to Vegas if I could!!! I love ALL the casinos. My FAVE casino is "Bellagio" the "O"!!! But, I can't. Then, Graeters ice cream is awesome is a great taste! It brings Cincy back to Vegas!!

Ice Cream at its best! Black Raspberry Chip is my favorite.But the new Rum Pecan Chip is right up there. Never a bad decision to stop at one of the many locations thru out Cincy!

Fantastic ice cream. I always try local when travelling and everyone told me to try here. The black raspberry choc chip is great, as is the peanut butter choc chip, well more like chunks than chips. Smooth creamy ice cream, great flavour and chunks of chocolate. What could be better?

I have tried all of the sorbets at Graeters and all are very good. Love the mango and raspberry the best. Or, I also enjoy a scoop of lemon with a scoop of raspberry! I usually have my sorbet in a waffle cone and it is quite yummy. One scoop usually fills me up, and two scoops if I'm really... More
