The Graeter's pints I bought at Kroger today were on sale for $4.49.
 
I'll keep a lookout for the Blueberry Pie and Peach.

    I have never heard of this ice cream.

    Gee go figure, now they will start their own peach graeters ice cream thread.

     
    That's because it isn't sold in India.

      ...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.

        Graeter's "Chips" are more flakes, they pour liquid chocolate into the rotating french pot and as the paddles scrape the sides of the pot the "chips" are formed, so they are never the same size or shape.

          Buddy, I've had several Graeter's flavors with their chips (flakes). I just don't happen to care for them in my ice cream

            We stopped at the New Albany, IN Graeter's yesterday. Jan  got a single-scoop of Toffee Chip. I got a single of Blueberry Pie. Both of us got the Waffle cones. These folks did not have the Fresh Peach flavor yet.  AND The Pretzel Waffle Cones are no longer available (at least at this store).

              I bought a pint of the fresh peach from my local Giant Eagle over the weekend and I still haven't attacked it, yet.  Sounds like a good project for tonight!

                Eat it while you watch the Pens game!  Might bring them luck.

                  But the Pirates are playing the Atlanta Braves at the same time.  I don't want my eating peach ice cream being taken as support for a Georgia team!

                    Spent the day at the Heinen's in Shaker Heights.  Checked out the freezer case when I was ready to leave.  No peach, but they did have Blueberry Pie.  Thought about picking up a pint, but faced the dilemma of needing to finish off a pint all by myself, just before dinner.  Plus there's no freezer in my hotel room, so it was a matter of polishing it off, or tossing the remainder in the trash.  I just couldn't live with myself if that happened.
                     
                    BTW, Graeter's is not the most expensive Ice Cream in the grocery store.  They had pints of Jeni's Ice Cream (icecreamchick's fave) for $9.99 each!
                     
                    The search for Peach continues on Friday!

                      Still on a graeters watch our two local Krogers do not have the peach flavor yet, but the Graeters near UC did have it in stock, 2 scoops on a waffle cone.
                       
                      Must make room in my freezer (just having gotten 60 totino pizzas)
                      (Hey Krogers was giving them away today and at twice the fuel points) (they were 10 pizzas for $10.00 and with a purchase of 5 you got $5.00 back) so 20 pizzas fro $20.00 and 4 x $5.00 coupon back at the register and fri sat sun every purchase @ krogers is double fuel points so they are giving me free gas to besides the free pizzas)

                        We went to Graeters tonight for my daughters report card, all A's , hers was free , ours were not. On Fathers Day it is ugly tie day , 1 ugly tie = 1 free scoop.
                        The lady behind the counter said Peach was coming soon, they will display a large banner when it arrives. I tried the Salted Caramel , it was pretty good.

                          I love the Graeter's black cherry, but I'm not fond of the version with chips. Then again, I don't care for any ice cream that includes pieces of chocolate.

                           
                          Well, I'll be damned! My Kroger market has about 14 flavors of Graeter's ice cream and everyone of them have chocolate chips!

                            I am not a fan of chocolate chips in ice cream.  Nuts and praline are fine but not chocolate.  The Graeter's peach has HUGE chunks of peaches.  Yummy!

                                    Thanks Annie!  We went up to Utica to Velvet ice cream to sit out by the water wheel (it was a grist mill in 1871) and the pond where there are ducks, geese and swans.  I had sea salt caramel in a waffle cone and MH had boring vanilla.  The free sundae at Graeter's is good until the 21st.  We will go tomorrow or Monday before departing on our mini-Roadfood trip next week!

                                          Had my free sundae at Graeter's today, I got a Turtle Sundae.  It was very good.........vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate and butterscotch sauces with a plethora of pecans, whipped cream and a cherry.  I could not finish it.....too sweet for me.  I prefer my one scoop of peach in a cup!  MH did not get boring vanilla he had black cherry.  It's delicious too!

                                            Minor question Lisa:  Why did you get the Turtle when you knew it would be sweet and you knew Graeters peach was voted in the top ten in the USA????.
                                             
                                            Somehow it does not sound like you.  Maybe you ordered under duress???

                                              Because it was free for my birthday!!!  We have the peach in our freezer at home and Graeter's is only about 2 miles away so I can get it any time.  I don't have a sweet tooth so it really was a bit much for me.

                                                I want the peach! However-in a pinch, I go for a turtle sundae. Never can finish it, Lisa!

                                                  It is available at only one store that I know of up here. I've had it a few times, but never the peach. I don't find it to be any better than the other super premiums, but I'll check out the peach if I can find it. The pints that we get here are, "Made under the authority of....", so maybe it is not really the same stuff as is raved about here....

                                                    I must admit I am not a big fan of the 'chunky dark chocolate' in the 'chip' flavored ice creams. I Like their Strawberry and the Blueberry Pie. I live for the coming of the Peach flavor each summer. It is the best of all their seasonal flavors IMHO.
                                                    I wish we could get the basic 'chip flavors' without the chip-chunks. All three that I have had...Blk Raspberry, Toffee, and Mocha are fine ice creams without the chocolate added.

                                                      ALL Graeters ice cream is made herein Cincinnati, and made 2 gallons at a time, then each pint is hand packed, before it gets deep frozen.  They just expanded their production facility here and it is a marvel to behold the new place compared to the older processing plant.

                                                        Went to Krogers in Harrison last night and BINGO they had fresh peach @ $4.99/pint.  However I still had my $5.00 cash back coupons from the free pizza they were giving away last week, and it was on ONE DAY SALE for 2 for $8.00. 
                                                         
                                                        I got 4 pints and even cash back woo hoo
                                                         
                                                        I ate one last night when i got home and about half way through the pint I hit something SOLID I thought "oh good the center of the ice cream is still frozen rock solid (from the 20 minute drive home)
                                                         
                                                        NOPE - I dug the solid chunk out, IT WAS A WHOLE HALF PEACH
                                                        I think they missed that one when processing the peaches.  It was a very pleasant surprise and packed a real peachy flavor to go with the peach ice cream.
                                                         
                                                        as the red robin commercials say "YUMMMMMMMMMM"

                                                          I bought some yesterday due to this thread and it did not disappoint. Very good although a bit expensive in my opinion, but still good. I'm bummed though as I couldnt find the blueberry pie. Maybe its not in season yet.

                                                            Btw, A pint of Graeter's at Kroger's in Dallas costs $4.49. How much in Wellsburg?
