Graeter’s Ice Cream Company

Robert Graeter – Cincinnati, OH

Sweet Spot: World-renowned chocolate chunks are their secret weapon.

Point of Pride

Big things in small batches. Graeter’s is, as far as we know, the last remaining commercial ice cream manufacturer in the world to use French Pot freezers. Its two-gallon batches are the smallest, and most artisan, in the industry.

On the Bucket List

“Create that next great signature Graeter’s ice cream flavor.”

Secrets of Success

“We take Peter’s Chocolate, melt it, pour it into French pots along with our ice cream, and then, using a paddle, chop it into our notoriously delicious chip-chunks.”

Why Peters?

“We have used Peter’s chocolates for many years. They are uniformly high in quality and have a great taste, a taste that has become part of the signature Graeter’s taste and experience.”

2 Pints of your favorite Ice Cream (We love Graeter’s Black Raspberry!)
