Graeter’s Black Cherry Chocolate Chip Review


graeter'sI know which flavors of ice cream I prefer.  Cookie dough, chocolate chip, and mint chip rank among my personal favs.  When given a choice  I’m bound to select some variation of those flavors.  Therefore when I was given the opportunity to try Graeter’s new Black Cherry Chocolate Chip, I knew who would like it most in my family.  My husband has a preference for a certain popular brand of ice cream and it’s music inspired name.  Surely, he would like this ice cream that closely resembled that classic taste.

Not surprisingly, he immediately did like Graeter’s Black Cherry Chocolate Chip.  In my attempt to be thorough I thought I needed to at least have one bite.  I begrudgingly took a taste, typically I have not been a fan of cherry based ice cream, especially ones with chunks of cherries and chocolate.  Upon my first taste I realized this ice cream was what I would call “high quality”.  Thick, rich tasting ice cream full of flavor with no artificial taste.  Of course, Graeter’s taste is so delicious since it does not include artificial ingredients.  Graeter’s only includes the highest quality cream, with 100% cane sugar and with premium fruits.  As I took one spoonful after another, I read the label on the carton and came to understand that Graeter’s ice cream is all about taking the finest care with ingredients and using the most traditional process that only creates two gallons of ice cream at a time!

Clearly Graeter’s objective is to produce the highest quality ingredient at all times.  And based upon my experience I can attest that this level of quality is immediately detectible.  I mentioned I didn’t like cherry based ice cream, right?  Hmmmm…that is no longer entirely true.  I love Graeter’s Black Cherry Chocolate Chip.  Upon detection that these containers of ice cream were bliss, I may or may not have hidden them in the freeze to decrease detection from other members of my family.  I did share.  I’m not evil.  But I did limit my sharing;)   Sometimes somethings are just too good for the kids, you know?

Ironically what I normally don’t like (chunks of fruit) was what I loved most about Graeter’s.  I found myself preferring the chunks of cherries over the chunks of chocolate.  This is so unlike me!  And the Black Raspberry Chip?  Oh my gosh!  Honestly, one of the best ice cream flavors I’ve ever had.  Clearly, I’ve been missing out on Graeter’s for all of my life.  This Ohio based company has only a few stores within the Buckeye state, but thankfully they do ship all their delicious flavors.  Oh, how I wish I could merely pick some up at my local grocery store, but I guess I’ll have to settle for delivery to my doorstep.

Now that I like all these flavors that I don’t traditionally enjoy, I am eager to taste some other varieties- Strawberry, Peanut Butter Chip, Chocolate Coconut Almond Chip…..the list goes on and on.  If you are looking for a yummy and unique gift this Valentine’s Day I highly recommend the variety pack, as this is a great way to sample six different flavors.

My mouth is now salivating writing about all this yummy ice cream.  It’s time to wrap up this review so I can dig in my freeze for the last little taste from my container.  My recommendation?  Try Black Cherry Chocolate Chip, you won’t be disappointed!
