So Memorial Day Weekend is here and I know a number of you plan to host or attend some parties, so let me give you some advice if you are unsure about dessert - find some Graeter's Ice Cream and you're good to go!
Graeter's originated in Ohio, but it started to become well known after it was featured on The Food Network and after someone named Oprah became a fan (see her review here) :)
I was sent four pints of ice cream to try, and I was quite happy to oblige :) Dan and I hosted a BBQ dinner with our families and we all had a taste test for dessert.
Everyone was pretty excited about this line-up
The flavors they sent me were Vanilla Chocolate Chip, Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Mint Chocolate Chip. And when they say chocolate chips they actually mean chocolate fudge chunks! Even directly out of the freezer, these HUGE chunks were still chewy and actually tasted DELICIOUS unlike most other chocolate chips in ice cream which are usually small, hard and bitter.
The ice cream itself is creamy and luscious, but the chocolate chunks really steal the show. My favorite out of all the flavors was the Chocolate Chocolate Chip. If you love chocolate, this is THE ice cream for you - it's just pure decadence! The Vanilla Chip was a perfect original and I could totally see it being an amazing addition to something like this this. The Black Raspberry tasted like a mild chocolate berry and though it was not my favorite, I still ate it because of the fudge chunks hahaha
Anyway, you bet your boots I'm buying this ice cream again! I loved it! So get yourself to Mars, Weis or The Fresh Market and buy yourself a pint!
