Probably not the first to use that pun, but I had to do it. Being from Indiana, I had never been to a Graeter's before. Their flavor selection was absolutely awesome, and their ice cream was top quality stuff. This is similar to a Ben and Jerry's, except the flavor selection is what puts Graeter's over Ben & Jerry's for... More

It is always a treat when we go to Graeter's to get some of their chip ice creams. The big chocolate chunks are so soft and chewable like a really good chocolate bar...not like the hard small chips you get in store bought ice creams. All of the chip flavors are delicious...black raspberry, coconut, peanut butter, salted caramel, mint, etc.... More

This was my first time to try Graeter's Ice Cream. YUM, I have been a Blue Bell fan for over 26 years and did not think it could be best, but I was wrong. Even their plain vanilla leaves you wanting more.

All of their ice creams are terrific but their peach tops them all followed by any if the chocolate kinds. I think we bought them out if peach so your out of luck on that until next year but you will be happy with any selection. The workers are super friendly and helpful. We ate ours "in" but, of course,... More

Really enjoyed the different flavors. Good portions for the price. I had the chocolate hazelnut. Tastes like Nutella.

I went into the Graeter's in Oakwood to purchase dry ice for shipping of a perishable food item. The store manager, Molly, and another employee went out of their way to provide information on dry ice and shipping. They then went above and beyond by helping me pack my product for shipping to help avoid freezing the items. Since I... More

I love ice cream. I have sampled it all over the world. I think Graeter's is the best in the U.S. by far. I had chocolate coconut chocolate chip that was a rotating flavor, which was absolutely awesome. We cannot get it where we live, except for some random bizarre flavors like sea salt. They do ship, but it's expensive.... More

My husband and I make it a point to enjoy this locally-made treat as often as we can! If you haven't had the opportunity to try this sweet, smooth, sensational dessert, you haven't experienced ice cream as it was meant to be!!

Visited Dayton for a law school graduation, our host took us to this little place in a shopping strip....black raspberry chocolate chip was everything I hoped it would be and they offer "diabetic friendly" options, which I've never seen in an ice cream shop.....might order this brand online and have it shipped to Texas!!!!

I had the mocha chocolate chip - but you must know that the "chips" are often huge chunks and are to die for.....
