Does the old fashioned creamy thick graeters ice-cream of ohio using the unique freezing method reminds you of the very intensive flavored berthillion ice-cream in franch

    I will soon find out, having had Bertillon. Somebody just sent me six pints of Graeter's; it was on my doorstep when I returned from the eye doctor. I have been having a fairly rough day but have a feeling it's about to get much, much better. Now, where's my spoon....

      food10, it's been a long time since I had the Bertillon, but Graeter's is awesome. Last night we tried the mint chocolate chip (my hubby's favorite) and the strawberry (mine.) They were both wonderful. I had some for breakfast this morning, too.

        I don't know about that french stuff, but I wouldn't say Graeter's is intensely flavored. Most of the flavors seem rather mild, or perhaps "delicate" would be a better word altho that's not quite right either. What I like is that it's very creamy and heavy, not too sweet, and the chips are excellent.

          Graeters is so great because of the amount of butterfat, everything so fresh and the way they make just small batches at a time. I don't know what the method is called but it may be french in origin, not sure. The batches are something like 4-5 gallons at a time.

            Pat, you're totally right. I read that this ice cream is made in "French pots"--which are actually used overseas to make that ice cream. Small batches and high butterfat are truly the keys. You can get six pints of Graeter's shipped in dry ice for about $50 total, your choice of flavors--at least you can here in Ohio. Be sure you get some of the raspberry chocolate chunk. At our house, a pint of that is single serving size

              Whenever I get to Cincy about the 1st thing I do is get some Graeter's. That is some darn good ice cream!
