There are a few perks to sitting behind this keyboard day after day. The latest perk made everyone in my house very happy!! The folks at Graeter’s Ice Cream contacted me to let me know that their ice creams are now at Publix and sent me some to try out!
While my boys would eat ice cream for breakfast, I have to admit that I am not a huge ice cream fan. I mean – I like it – but given my choice, I would typically go for some chocolate over a bowl of ice cream. That was until I tried out Graeter’s Ice Cream…holy moly guys - it is phenomenal!!
Most ice creams that I have eaten are almost crunchy…like eating little frozen milk ice crystals or something? Well, Graeter’s Ice Cream is like silk–seriously the creamiest and smoothest ice cream I have ever put in my mouth!! It seems they use a French Pot Method and that is what makes Graeter’s so creamy. They are so serious about making the best ice cream that they actually make each batch 2 gallons at a time and hand pack each pint! Now that is major attention to detail! Boy oh boy, it shows in the final product! You can see the detail on their method on their website.
I am now officially an ice cream lover! When you shop at Publix this week, you might want to throw a pint of the Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip in your cart. I would have probably never chosen that flavor while standing in the frozen aisle but let me just tell you – it is fantastic. That pint was gone in two days and I am already craving another big bowl! I did not get to try out the Butter Pecan so I think I will have to pick up a pint of that AND the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip when I shop. I will just have to make sure I am sharing so I don’t end up finishing off a pint all by myself (Yes…it REALLY is that good!!)
Publix now carries the following flavors of Graeter’s Ice Cream:
- Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip
- Chocolate Chocolate Chip
- Vanilla Chocolate Chip
- Mint Chocolate Chip
How about a giveaway? It is soon to hit scorching temperatures here in the south…so how about some creamy, delicious ice cream to keep you cool? One reader will win six pints of Graeter’s signature chip flavors.
