George Clooney's favourite ice cream (supposedly)

Post by Katiedot on Thu Apr 05 2012, 08:30

I always have my doubts when companies use George's name as a client but this sounded too good to ignore.

Graeter's premium chocolate chip ice creams land at Stop & Shop

Published: Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Graeter's ice cream has been promoted as a favorite of Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker.

In the highly competitive world of frozen treats, it probably helps to have a few celebrity endorsements. But what really makes Graeter’s unique is its French-pot freezing process where only two gallons are mixed at a time. The Ohio company recently placed pints of its flavors in New Jersey Stop & Shop stores.

Six of the seven varieties stocked have bits of chocolate mixed in, and the chocolate "chips" here aren't what you'd find in a cookie. Here, sizable chunks form when liquid chocolate is added, freezing solid during the final mix. The base ice cream flavors include vanilla, chocolate, coconut, mocha, mint and black raspberry.

While each of the supermarket varieties is decadently creamy, black raspberry chocolate chip is the pint many will wish could never end (it’s reported that Bobby Flay and Matt Lauer back me on this). The intense, real fruit flavor and vivid purple color are what one would expect from blending a black raspberry sorbet into a base of sweet cream and egg custard. Dark chocolate bits make a flavor contrast that supports the “irresistible” claim on Graeter’s packaging. Pints were $4.99 each at Watchung and Union Stop & Shops.

The web site of trusted travel guide Frommers lists Graeter's Columbus, Ohio creamery among picks for America's 10 Best Ice Cream Factory Tours (along with the original Ben & Jerry's in Vermont and Pennsylvania's Turkey Hill Experience in Lancaster ). Graeter's also sells its ice cream online, shipped frozen solid on dry ice through graeters.com

I can believe this. Maybe not the flavor of ice cream but the brand. Graeter's is BIG in Cincy area which includes that part of Kentucky in which Nick and Nina now live. Their ice cream is fantastic. George seems to be the kind of person who is very loyal and I'll bet that loyalty extends to brands. Nina even recently said that George goes home more than people know. I'll bet a "treat" could include Graeter's.

People who live here but went to college in Cincy RAVE about Skyline Chili and Graeter's Ice Cream. I went to a convention in Cincy last summer and I can't tell you how many people told me I HAD to go to both shops. I would pass on Skyline, but Graeter's - oh my! We went back there 2 times.

Graeter's is Cincinnati's number one ice cream shop. I am a big Skyline fan, and the local supermarkets sell frozen Skyline Chili and Gold Star Chili. Gold Star Chili is another Cincy fave, and Skyline and Gold Star are intense rivals; if you like one, you usually do not like the other. The two chilis were both created by Greek immigrants who opened chili parlors here in Cincinnati.

Adgran, do you live near Cincinnati? Just asking.

Skyline here in Cleveland make great chili and chili dogs. I love the chilidogs. Have been there only a few times, but they and Sonic have the greatest chilidogs. My personal weakness which I have had to cut back on because of weight control issues. Smile
