A landmark product from Cincinnati that is always great. Good enough to make you want to eat ice cream in the winter. What more can you say?

If I could only take one memory with me of ice cream, it would be the dreamy ice cream of Graeter's. The ice cream here is a level beyond. The chocolate chips you find are not only humongous but top quality chocolate. Since it is all hand- mixed and hand packed in small batches, it makes each ice cream cone... More

Made 5 gallons at a time Graters is a premium icecream rich and creamy usually sold in pints (but gallons are available). The icecream is dense (little air) and of rich flavor. Their stores also offer bakery goods just as excellent as the icecream. If you buy it by the scoop...their huge!

Probably the best ice cream around. I always get the strawberry - really creamy and a great flavor. Can be a little on the expensive side but it's worth a treat from time to time.

Graeter's ice cream is ALWAYS delicious, but so are their baked goods. This year we ordered a Yule Log for our Christmas festivities, and we were thrilled with it!

Fantastic ice cream and dessert place. I was there when it was cold outside but it was nice and warm in the shop with tasty ice cream. The staff was nice and quick. Cute place.

This was our evening treat, sitting out in the square by the fountain listening to the locals playing a trivia game! It was a very hot night and humid, which we aren't used to not living in the Midwest. The ice cream from Graeter's hit the spot!

If you get a chip variety there are big chunks of chocolate with a perfect consistency. Not hard but not soft either. I was sad when my cone was devoured.

The best ice cream in the world. Don't forget the wonderful pastries. Old world recipes make this a must visit.

The prices are too much. While friends paid outrageous prices for ice cream I have problems with sweets, I paid outrageous prices for a black, plain coffee.

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.
