I had the chocolate chip traditional scoop - it was huge for $4. The double was only $.50 more but I truly could not have eaten that much. My husband had the raspberry chocolate chip which was also delicious. They let you try before you buy as well - great idea

I was recently diagnosed with diabetes, very happy to find that Graeter's offers three flavors of low carb Ice Cream.

The creamiest, most flavorful ice cream ever. And do you like chocolate chips in your ice cream? These are the biggest chunks of chocolate you'll find anywhere. But best of all, I love their lime sodas and any flavor malt!

I have been eating Graeters ice cream for the last decade whenever i visit USA. The quality remains outstanding. The flavours traditional. This is one brand which needs to go overseas to the Far East.

I got a pumpkin spice chiller, and my server had no idea how to make it. She had to consult with another employee to figure it out, and I'm not quite sure she got it right. Service was a tad slow and the drink was just okay. Not what I would expect for he price.

Coffee ice cream use to be Superb but since the coffee bean was changed it has little to no coffee flavor. Coming from New England where coffee ice cream is a stable , I felt lucky to be close to Greater's... Now I am wicked bummed about the name change from Coffee ic to Vienna coffee as well as changing... More

Their bittersweet sundae with vanilla ice cream and chocolate bittersweet topping (no sprinkles and other distractions) is the best ice cream experience on the planet. The second best is any of their chip flavors since their chips are 3 times larger than any competitors and the richness of their ice cream beats all comers. I am 70 and since junior... More

There's a reason Oprah orders this in - it's phenomenal. Very rich, but nice treat for myself after long days. :) We also bribe our kids for good grades with Graeters. If you love chocolate - get any of the "chip" flavors. I'm partial to the season salted caramel chip.

You can't come to Cincy and not get Graeter's ice cream! Their signature flavor is raspberry chocolate chip - they pour melted chocolate into the ice cream as it is being made, so it freezes and breaks into huge chunks. I have never gotten a scoop without a piece bigger than my thumb!! They have seasonal ice creams, and have... More

Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.
