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.
