New Flavor at Graeter's

Graeter's is an institution around here, right? Me, I'm a bigger fan of Aglamesis (check out 5chw4r7z's recent photo review), but I won't pass up Graeter's raspberry sorbet. They're introducing a new flavor-- for charity!-- this weekend. It's called Elena's Blueberry Pie, and has blueberries and pie crust in vanilla ice cream and benefits pediatric brain cancer research. It sounds like Graeter's is going a little Ben and Jerry's on us-- with different flavors and a charitable approach. I'm not complaining.

What's your favorite ice cream in town? I still miss the Ben and Jerry's that used to be on UC's campus-- loved their banana rum ice cream. I also like the flavors of Madisono's gelato.

Aglamesis is the best ice cream. Thank goodness our Kroger's carries it! However, I will definitely stop by Graeter's for some Blueberry Pie. What a wonderful cause.

Aglamesis' cinnamon ice cream is outrageously good. I also like going to the ice cream shop in Oakley and getting pineapple sorbet with pineapple topping. Mmmm.

It is a great cause! I wonder, though, what percentage of the proceeds goes to the cause.

Although I don't eat much sugar, I believe it is the cause of many of todays health and diet issues, I do love a dip on occasion, mint chip is my weakness. One place I have trouble passing is the Sweet Tooth in Newport. A classic soda fountain and family owned.

my personal graeter's favorite is coconut chip. don't get to aglamesis very much...but the cinnamon sounds like it would be worth the drive.

I am a Graeter's girl. I love anything with chunks of chocolate in it. I've never been let down with my choices.

I love graeter's choc choc chip, buckeye blitz and peppermint stick (wish it was available year round.)

They do a good egg nog and pumpkin in the fall.

Aglamesis - i love love love their raspberry, champagne and coconut sorbets. It's around the corner from my home so I have to refrain from going too crazy there.

Their sundaes are phenomenal too - they've got a "bourbon street" sundae w caramel, hot fudge and marshmallow toppings.

Out of this world!!

PS - I'm also really diggin' Yagoot. Do you know if Busken plans to open any more shops?

I don't mind Graeter's, but, in Ohio, I have yet to find anything to beat Jenni's in Columbus... If you cant a chance, get to the North Market and try it!
