Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? I have a GIVEAWAY just for you! You can WIN 2 FREE pints of Graeter’s Ice Cream or Gelato! If you haven’t tried it yet, you are going to Love it!!
Graeter’s is an artisan family owned and operated company in business in Cincinnati, Ohio since 1870, making old-fashioned ice cream, traditional Italian Gelato, sorbets, and Certified Low Glycemic ice cream using 50% less sugar. To help celebrate their 147th anniversary, they have graciously donated coupons so you can enjoy this delightful, creamy, and sinfully delicious ice cream!
Their ice cream is made using the traditional French Pot process. The French Pot process is similar to the old-fashioned hand crank system used in the earliest homemade ice cream machines. Small batch processing gives each one personal attention and creating an irresistible creaminess that is completely unique, not to mention totally addicting!
Being in the heartland of the country, they have access to the freshest cream and milk from Ohio farms that practice humane and sustainable practices, including never using any artificial growth hormones. When that cream and milk are combined with 100% cane sugar and eggs, they get the perfect custard that is the base for all their flavors.
Graeter’s is committed to bringing you the best ice cream and use only the highest quality ingredients in everything they make. No fake syrups, sweeteners, colors or flavorings. And no hydrogenated oils so there are no trans fats in their products.
My family had one of the hand crank ice cream makers when I was young and it was so fun to make our own homemade ice cream, but a lot of work! We would take turns turning the crank and as it became harder and harder to turn – that’s when my brothers would take over and eventually, toward the end of the churning, my dad would do the last of the turns until it was almost too difficult for him. Then we knew we had the perfect ice cream!
Graeter’s uses a similar process today, making just two gallons at a time. This gives them the ability to create ice cream that has that same home-churned flavor and texture. The French Pot system greatly reduces the amount of air being whipped into the cream, creating the unbelievably smooth and creamy texture that is remarkable. And once it it’s done, they pack each pint by hand, nearly 20,000 pints a day!!
If you are lucky enough to be in the Midwest and can get to one of their 40 neighborhood stores, stop in and get the full soda fountain experience! They have cones, sundaes, sodas, shakes, malts, smoothies, ice cream cakes and more. Visit Graeter’s website to find stores in your neighborhoods where you can buy your own pints of your favorite flavors!
If you’re like me, you’ll spin on the high stools, swing your feet under the chair and totally revert to childhood, LOL. Now, how are you going to win that free ice cream? It’s simple – just complete the entries in the Rafflecopter below.
Good luck and have fun!
