G: Graeter’s (or the joy of ice cream) #AtoZChallenge

It’s a pretty good bet that an ice cream maker is from Ohio when they have Buckeye-themed ice cream. πŸ™‚

I live in a city that’s full of good ice cream places. You might have heard of Jeni’s–it was one of Oprah’s favorite things. It started here in Central Ohio. I went many times to the original stand at the North Market. I do like Jeni’s, but I more often go to another regional favorite: Graeter’s. It started in Cincinnati, I believe, but you can still go to a local production spot and watch the ice cream being made.

It might sound boring, but I love vanilla ice cream, and Graeter’s just might have the best vanilla ice cream I’ve ever tasted. I refuse to look at the fat content!

Their peach ice cream in the summer and the eggnog ice cream in December are highlights of my year. They also make some damn fine milk chocolate. I never have to wonder what to get my stepmother for Christmas. πŸ™‚

Recently, their distribution has grown to supermarkets all over the country, but definitely check out a shop if you’re ever in my neck of the woods.

What are your favorite ice cream places?
