It's Christmastime @ Graeter's - Peppermint Stick ice Cream Wed, 12/4/13 6:36 PM (permalink)
I stopped by a Graeter's the other day for some pastries and had forgotten that it was the holiday season.
 
Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
Cinnamon Ice Cream
Egg Nog Ice Cream
 
I had to splurge and get a scoop of each.

        The cinnamon and eggnog sound interesting.

          Thanks CK!  Being a huge fan of mint, I would love the peppermint stick ice cream.  Maybe they have the pints in the local Giant Eagle.
           
          Jeni's has a fantastic dark chocolate peppermint, which I enjoyed during a stop yesterday with Poverty Pete

            I am with Mr. Hoffman...I am not a fan of mint, but a dark chocolate peppermint could sway me.....

              I just made a dark chocolate/mint with mint Oreos test batch that came out very well.
              I'm still working on an egg nog that has something for texture. My next batch with that will have Grape Nuts. Otherwise, it feels like it's missing something. If that doesn't work, I might try rum infused dates (perhaps caramelized in maple syrup after macerating for 24 hours in the rum).
              A popular flavor I made last Christmas was white chocolate with crushed peppermint (candy canes).

                    We received a surprise Christmas present from a friend last night about 7:00PM... Our UPS driver came to the door with a freezer box  that contained a dozen pints of Graeter's wonderful ice cream. In the assortment of flavors are Blk Raspberry & Blk Cherry Chips, Mocha and Toffee Chips, Salted Carmel, Raspberry Sorbet, Blueberry Pie, and Peppermint Stick.
                    What a nice gift !!! It arrived in perfect condition...that's one advantage to living close to the UPS worldport facility in Louisville, our service from them has been outstanding.
                    Thank You to our friend, who is always full of surprises...we appreciate your thoughtful gift very much.

                        There is one pint of the Cinnamon flavor in the collection. We have not tried it before, so it will be an special treat sometime soon.

                          We drove by Graeter's FOUR times today but just did not have time to stop.  We'll get there before Christmas for the special flavors.

                            I got a graeter's gift card today from a friend.
                             
                            I was thinking of saving it for the chili crawl, but then I saw the pictures from the coney crawl in '09 and those wonderful cheese crowns, I had forgotten about them.
                             
                            Sooooooo
