We’re literally less than a week away from the official start to Spring but you wouldn’t know it by the weather we’ve been having as of late. Snowing like crazy and very cold temps! But that doesn’t deter us from enjoying our ice cream, even if by the fire! Grater’s Ice Cream has become a favorite brand since our first encounter. Back then we were introduced to some amazing ice cream flavors. I think my absolute favorite is still the Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip but now that Graeter’s has just rolled out new flavors I may be in for a real challenge deciding which is my favorite.
My daughter and I had a fireside sitting extravaganza recently sampling the new flavors. She picked Dark Chocolate Brownie while I sat and enjoyed giant spoonfuls of S’mores! These are classic flavors made with optimal ingredients for a rich, creamy and super delicious dessert. The Dark Chocolate Brownie is just like a smooth frozen chunk of brownie. A chocolate lover’s delight packed with soft, chewy brownie bits complementing the richness of the dark chocolate ice cream. How bad can that be?! The S’mores ice cream captures the essence of the campfire tradition. Chocolate chips, soft mini marshmallows and a rich creamy graham cracker ice cream. It is truly a unique treat that I don’t think I’ll be able to get from any other brand!
Graeter’s make their ice cream with nothing but the highest quality ingredients. They use fresh local dairy, select fruits and the most gourmet chocolates to create amazing ice cream. All ingredients are pasteurized, cooked, and combined in a flavor vat. The rich mixture is then ready to be frozen in 2½-gallon French Pot Freezers; keeping the same process Graeter’s started making ice cream with centuries ago.
Graeter’s ice cream comes out of the French Pot ready to eat. And while delicious, it is too thick to pump into pint containers like most ice cream makers. The only solution is an old fashioned one, they roll up their sleeves and get to packing. On a typical day they hand pack nearly 20,000 pints. Another great thing about Graeter’s is that while you may be able to find them in your local market, you always have the option of delivery to your doorstep. With over 30 flavors to choose from, shopping for your favorite ice cream online is super easy, including flavors like the classics, seasonal and some limited flavors.
