Visiting Graeter's should be visited on every trip to Cincinnati. Creamy Deliciousness and the best ice cream I've ever eaten! My favorite is the Chocolate Chip but my husband is a Black Raspberry chip guy. Seriously, you cannot go wrong with any of the flavors.

I love all the flavors but my all time favorite is their coconut and it is a seasonal flavor. You can get it in August and then Coconut Almond Chip in February. I am a purist so the plain Coconut is my favorite however the chip flavor with huge chunks of dark chocolate and whole almonds is so delicious it... More

Any time of year is ice cream time. Especially if it's Greater's black raspberry chip. Locally made and overall the highest quality ice cream around.

I grew up on Graeter's ice cream! Our family would always visit together for a special treat. Graeter's was always in our freezer. I have never tasted better ice cream. I still eat it every chance I get. Try it. You'll love it! Take your friends there. Always have some on hand.

An ice cream place gourmet don't think so. When it tastes like ice cream, feels like ice cream and quacks like a duck must be duckie cream. Seriously your standard ice cream maybe healthy.

The ice cream is fabulous and the servers are so much fun. So many flavors. So many choices. Can't wait for the mystery flavor to be revealed.

If you like ice cream, you have found your nirvana. Great flavors and wonderful sauces and other toppings too. Don't forget the candies and home made pastries! There is so much milk fat in the vanilla ice cream that you need a large drink of water afterwards. It's worth it though, hands down. Absolutely.

Thank bobmG2670WY

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.
