Michael Hoffman ...I'm not fond of the version with chips. Then again, I don't care for any ice cream that includes pieces of chocolate.
That might be because of the quality of the chips in other Chocolate Chip Ice Creams. As I mentioned above, the process for getting Chocolate Chips into Graeter's Ice Cream is totally different from any other commercial product:
"Graeter's uses a unique process for creating their Chocolate Chip products. Unlike most commercial chocolate chip ice creams, where the chips are hard, tasteless shards of low grade chocolate, Graeter's chips are soft pliable chunks, sometimes as big as silver dollars, with deep, rich flavor."
Generally I agree with your distaste for Chocolate Chips in my Ice Cream, but Graeter's is so radically different, and of such high quality, I'm willing to make an exception.
