Graeter's French Pot Ice Cream dates back to the 1800's when the Louis Charles Graeter began making ice cream in a market at the base of  Sycamore Hill in Cincinnati, Ohio. Today the Graeter family still operates a dozen ice cream stores in Cincinnati along with parlors in other parts of the Midwest http://www.graeters.com/default.aspx.








The ice cream is made by the famous French Pot(freezer) process which allows them to only process the ice cream just two gallons at a time. That gives the ice cream it's famous creaminess, so creamy that they have to be packed by hand!






Graeter's for many years was only available on line. I remember hearing about the famous Black Raspberry Chip from a friend and ordered for a taste for Thanksgiving around 2001. In 2002 Oprah profiled the ice cream on her show and named it one of the best.

The ice cream was delicious, amazing, it is not Haagen Dazs sweet, but incredibly creamy and satisfying.  but it was just not that convenient, I wished that I could go to my local grocery and pick up a pint!







Well,  now we can do just that! Everyone can have a  taste their wonderful ice cream by purchasing your favorite flavor at your local grocery stores http://www.graeters.com/locations.aspx. My local one is Kroger here in Atlanta and they carry a wide range of flavors.  My favorite continues to be the Black Raspberry Chip, the chocolate chip chunks are huge and chewy. The Elena's Blueberry Pie is very tasty and the Vanilla is one of the best on the market.





Check out the links I have attached and head to your local stockists for some of the best ice cream in the world!
