Best ice cream in the country.
I was introduced to Graeters ice cream about a year ago. Graeters is a small Ohio manufacturer that makes ice cream using a traditional French pot process. It is carried in limited flavors by Publix and Fresh Market. Their ice cream is really the best I have ever had.

I'll give you that it may be the best you've tasted so far. I'll give you that. The Jewel stores here in Chicago carry it and I've had it and my reaction is...it's good. But my favorite ice cream that I've tasted so far is Bi-Rite in San Francisco. I will allow that there may be better than Bi-Rite (that I've yet to taste) but Graeters is in no way better than Bi-Rite.
Since I live in OH now, of course Graeters is great ;)
Seriously it is very good ice cream. But we also have Jenny's ice cream here in Ohio, she does incredibly good ice cream - much more expensive, better ingredients, more unique flavors, its really very very good stuff, better than Graeters in my opinion.
I've seen Graeter's at the store (Pittsburgh), but I've never tried it. Does it have guar gum, carrageenan, taro root, whatever?
I didn't think Jeni's ice cream was that good. I mean, it's not bad ice cream, but I just can't pay $10 a pint for ice cream, particularly ice cream made with cornstarch.
