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.

“Best Ice Cream ever, anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I call myself an ice cream snob because no other ice cream is worth the calories. My favorite is chocolate chip but I also love chocolate sundaes with chocolate chip ice cream at the stores. Recently, I bought some Chocolate Gelato at Kroger and it was awesome.

“One of the Best Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Graeter's Ice Cream is among the best I've ever eaten. Their raspberry dark chocolate chip is my favorite although every flavor is excellent.

No mater which flavor you choose, it's going to be wonderful. My personal favorite is chocolate chip. Their candy is also exceptional.

“To die for, best chocolate ever inside an ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Just the best , no wait it's terrible so then if you don't come I'll have MORE to eat.. LOVE the flavors , chocolate melts in you mouth when you eat the ice cream.. Not the cheap hard chocolate like some companies use.. So many good flavors that it's hard to choose, then there is a great pastry shop too.

“Classic Cincinnati Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

No trip to Cincinnati would be complete without a stop at a Graeter's ice cream shop. They have amazingly rich and creamy flavors. Their "chip" flavors have chunks of chocolate throughout. I've had many different flavors and each has been more amazing than the last. Some of their standbys that I like - Buckeye Blitz, Chocolate Coconut Almond, and Mint Chip. Some of their rotating flavors Pumpkin (fall), Cinnamon (fall), Mint Cookies and Cream (spring).
