Ice cream on a hot summer evening -- what's not to love. Actually, I've also enjoyed Graeter's ice cream on a cold winter night. For me, ice cream is a year round treat and while it doesn't need to be hot to enjoy ice cream - it sure doesn't hurt.
My first experience with Graeter's was in December 1996 - a cold winter evening. I had just moved to Columbus and was out with some coworkers. After dinner, they wanted to go to Graeter's for dessert. I still remember thinking they were crazy but after trying Graeter's that cold December evening I was hooked. Over the past 20 years, I'd like to say I've tried a lot of their flavors but -- alas - I'm a chocolate freak so I've only those flavors that are some variation of chocolate -- double chocolate, mint chocolate chip, chocolate chip, etc. My most ambitious flavor was raspberry chocolate chip and it was excellent. Still - my all time favorite is a single scoop of double chocolate on a sugar cone. Milkshakes are also exceptional.
