I love Graeter's ice cream- it is hard to resist. We skipped dessert at the restaurant tonight so I had to stop on the way home. They have added many more flavors but I stick to my favorites- vanilla chocolate chip and toffee chip. Not low calorie. They do have reduced fat ice cream but I have tried it and... More

I have traveled a lot but the best ice cream is right here in Cincinnati. Just try any flavor. And the baked goods are very good also. Love the cheese crowns!

If you like chocolate (and who doesn't?), then you simply must try some variety with chocolate chips (which are actually chunks) that are unlike any chocolate chips you've ever had. Melt in your mouth delicious. Seriously, chocolate in ice cream that is not brittle. It's genius. Genius, I tell you.

With good reason. Graeters is a Cincinnati tradition. I once took six pints to Europe packed in dry ice. AirFrance lost it for two days but when it arrived it was still perfect. Try the new gelato flavors. As good or better than Italian.

Graeters is a local company in Cincinnati, OH. Years ago I even met the son, Chip Graeter (really!). He explained to me that they pour chocolate into the ice cream as it is being made. That is why the chocolate chunks are SO BIGGGG and uneven sizes... You won't believe just how big these chunks of rich chocolate are- REALLY!!!!!!... More

Graeter's is the most amazing, family owned, last of the old french pot ice cream makers. Most known for their flavors with chocolate chips in them, if you can call them chips...they are more like huge chocolate chunks (which are amazing themselves) and paired with the delicious flavors are a knock out combination. The reach of this amazing company has... More

Graeter's is, quite simply, fabulous. The ice cream is rich and flavorful - and any "chip" flavors m piay include huge slabs of dark chocolate, along with smaller pieces. The gelato is excellent, too. Service is always fast and friendly. A Cincinnati classic.

Greaters is a Cincinnati favorite, which over the last few years, has gone mainstream . It is now distributed across the country. I have been enjoying this wonderful product since I was a child, and it has lost none of its luster or quality. Still the best icecream on the planet! Try it, and you'll never eat another brand! Enjoy!... More

Have a sweet tooth? Don't pass Graeter's. Cookies, cakes, chocolate, ice cream, YUM!!! My personal favorites are the chip wheelie ( two chocolate chip cookies with ice cream between them rolled in chocolate sprinkles), Black Raspberry Chip ice cream which has CHUNKS of chocolate in it that melts in your mouth, and the "turtle sundae", which needs no further explanation!...
