    Michael, I have never had Graeter's fresh peach ice cream. Mostly because I can't quit buying the black raspberry chip! My eyes will be peeled for the peach. Thanks for the tip!

      My favorite other than the summer peach --currently -- is the black cherry ice cream.

        Just picked up a pint of Mocha Chip, because the store didn't carry Black Raspberry Chip.  Not disappointed in the least.  But I'd sure like to try that Peach!

            Their Summer Peach is better than yum!  It's a triple yum!

              I guess I should have asked the question, is the Peach only available at Graeter's stores, or can you buy it in pints at the grocery store?  I'll be in Cleveland June 6-9.  If they sell it in pints, I should be able to find it at a Heinen's store.  Otherwise, I'm out of luck.

                  My two favorite flavors by anyone...these must be awesome!

                    I'll look for it at the store.
                     
                    Our local Chicago area grocers started carrying Graeter's about a year ago, but with a limited selection.  They've got more to choose from at the Cleveland stores, but I won't have anyone with me to help eat the whole pint.
                     
                    Oh, wait.  Maybe that's a good thing...

                      Buddy,
                      You need help eating a whole pint of Graeter's ice cream?  We bought two pints yesterday.....his and hers.  But I think half of his will quickly become mine

                          I'll eat it while you're at the Waffle House.

                            I need help finishing the pint because I usually eat it before dinner, and don't want to completely spoil my appetite before bellying up to the cafeteria line at Sokolowski's University Inn.  buffetbuster has been there to aid and abet in the past, but I haven't yet formally announced this trip and don't know if he'll be there to pick up his end of the bargain.

                              This past winter I got very attached to the 'Blueberry Pie' flavor Ice Cream...Now I will switch to the Peach, as it is my Summer favorite  when it is in season.   I do like the Mocha Chip very much also.

                                Whatever flavor you prefer, have it in a Graeter's pretzel cone.  The salted pretzel works especially well with chocolate flavors.

                                  I never get it in a cone, I have a hard time finishing one scoop in a dish, while MH has TWO scoops in a dish and usually finishes my last two spoonfulls.  I might try the pretzel cone the next time!

                                    I am ashamed to say I couldn't finish my two scoops of Graeters when Al took me there.....however, bring on the peach!

                                      You folks have got me wanting to try some of their product.  They only sell in two food stores in Knoxville and I doubt if they have the peach but I am gonna find out today.

                                        Paul,
                                        Even if they don't have the peach, you won't go wrong with any Graeter's product.  Any of their "chip" ice creams will make you happy.  I'm particularly fond (as is buffetbuster, and many others) of their Black Raspberry Chip.  As stated upthread, I'm currently working on a pint of Mocha Chip that is outstanding.
                                         
                                        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.
                                         
                                        Graeter's ain't cheap, mind you; it sells for about five bucks a pint around here.  Not your "everyday" ice cream, but  a worthwhile, occasional treat.
                                         
                                        Buddy

                                          I may be weird or something, but I like to pick up an extra pint of one of my seasonal favorites, and toss it in the freezer.
                                          There's nothing like savoring a taste of something you love, in my case, eggnog in July, or peach in the depths of winter.

                                          I spoke with one of the store managers, and he said that if you don't break the seal of the lid, the ice cream will be good till the date stamped on the bottom. Usually quite a long time.

                                          I limit my hoarding to just one pint, otherwise it wouldn't be special anymore.

                                            Right now, my schedule revolves around watching the NHL playoffs.  I left every weekend in June open just in case my team makes it all the way to the finals.  But, a day trip up to Cleveland is definitely a possibility.

                                                  Damn! My Kroger didn't have any. But, I picked up a pint each of Mint Chocolate Chip and Black Cherry Chocolate Chip. Yummo!

                                                      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.

                                                        lleechef, I've never seen the Graeters Blueberry Pie in Dallas. I'd buy it in a second if I ever see it.
                                                         
                                                        Michael, I tend to agree with you regarding the "chips". Like you, I'd prefer not to have them. But, there is only one group of stores in Dallas that stocks Graeter's. That being Kroger stores. So, I'm lucky to get what I can.

                                                          I have never heard of this ice cream.

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

                                                            It still amazes me that Graeter's still hand packs each and every pint that leaves their facility and it is made in 2 gallon batches.
                                                             
                                                            That's a lot of hands on no wonder its $40.00+ a gallon. 
                                                             
                                                            I have had several pints of peach, and the kroger guy said that blueberry pie should be back out in June.
                                                             
                                                            I love living in the cincy area for ice cream.
