Description: 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.

“The Best Ice Cream on the Face of the Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I love Graeters Ice cream. I have been eating it since I was a little girl. Chunks are huge in the chocolate chip and the Butter pecan is to die for. I first ate at the one in Mariemont after we went to the Movies. There is not Ice Cream Better. What a great thing to come from Cincinnati.

“Special treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Graeters is always a special treat for our family when visiting the Cincinnati area. It is known by friends in Arlington, VA. Love their chocolate chip of all varieties!

“not only great ice cream fantastic pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Of course I love the ice cream but they have great pastries also. I think their smiley cookies are far superior to the other large bakery in town. nice danishes and really good cakes. They pretty much have the sweet tooth angle covered here.

“Best ice cream in the land!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Everything about Graeter's first-rate...their ice cream flavors, their chocolate chip size, their pastries, their customer service and the overall Graeter's vibe.
