Okay, I know I’m on this low-carb, low-fat diet. But when Graeter’s, an ice cream company based out of Ohio offered me a selection of their ice creams to taste, I jumped at the chance. (I was just going to taste them, come on!) Especially after I checked out their website and saw what their ice creams are made of. Cream. Sugar. Vanilla. Real chocolate. It frankly disgusts me to see ice cream made with high fructose corn syrup and all those weird fillers. Gross. But this stuff has been made in small batches – only two gallons at a time – since 1870, so I was really intrigued.
Since my weird children aren’t into ice cream, I decided to have it shipped to work so I could share it with my coworkers. I knew they wouldn’t turn down ice cream. And indeed they didn’t.
David couldn’t believe how good it tasted!
They sent me four pints: Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Black Raspberry Chip. But to call them “chips” is misleading. That makes me think of tiny, tasteless squares of “chocolate”. No no. These chips are more like chunks. Huge, fudgey, melt-in-your mouth chunks of real chocolate. So good.
That ice cream only lasted a couple of days in the break room freezer. Good guys.
You know, Oprah likes this stuff too. And now us New Orleans residents can get it at Winn-Dixie. No paying for overnight shipping!

Graeter’s sent me this ice cream to taste, but I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are mine (and my coworker’s!)
