Graeter's Changes Ice Cream Lineup

It's a black day if you liked Graeter's black walnut ice cream. But it's a dream come true if you like cookies and cream.

Cincinnati's 135-year-old ice cream maker is dropping three flavors and adding four new ones.

Gone are black walnut, coffee and amaretto crunch. Peppermint stick has been dropped as a year-round flavor but will be sold seasonally.

The new year-round flavors are cookies and cream, cookie dough chip, coconut chip and Buckeye Blitz (peanut-butter cookie dough in chocolate ice cream).

Graeter's is also replacing its monthly flavor calendar with a season calendar, as follows:

January-March: Mint Cookies and Cream, Rocky Road

February-April: Cherry Chip

April-June: Chocolate Brownie, Tangerine Cream

May-July: Mango Sherbet, Strawberry Chip

July-August: Peach

July-September: Watermelon Sorbet

July-October: Chocolate Coconut Almond Fudge

September-November: Apple Cider Sorbet

October-November: Pumpkin Spice

November-December: Cinnamon Stick, Peppermint Stick

December: Egg Nog


Graeter's said the changes reflect what customers want.

They drop three sublime flavors and add three types of cookie dough. Cookie dough is for children. More evidence of the infantilization of Americans.

Please look at my siggie.

That sucks.

The three they dropped are all in my top 10. They should leaves the 'cookie' flavors Ben & Jerry's and the boys at UDF. What's next, 'chunky monkey' or a 'Cherry Garcia' ripoff?

Sad about the black walnut.... disappointed about the Peppermint.......... devastated by the Coffee.

What's next?

You'll have to pry my Nectar Phosphate out of my cold dead hands.

Coffee is a standard and my absolute fav. Might as well drop vanilla or rocky road.

I'm glad they extended Cherry Chip beyond February. Next to Black Raspberry Chip it's my favorite.

I want to try Buckeye Blitz. Yum.

My favorite is Mint Chip at most shops.

Geez, those were definitely three of my favorites. BUt at least they kept Black Raspberry Chip and Double Chocolate Chip. And I wish they made Peach a year 'round flavor instead of one month a year.

A vote for Amaretto Crunch. That was my absolute favorite, too. Jaerks.
