Graeter’s Ice Cream Announces Their Expansion into Harris Teeter Markets



CINCINNATI, OH (May 2015)Graeter’s Ice Cream, a super premium craft ice cream brand, is excited to announce its expansion into Harris Teeter markets. This expansion is a result of growing consumer requests. Graeter’s Ice Cream enthusiasts can now find pints of their favorite ice cream in Harris Teeter for $5.49. This favorite ice cream brand will be more accessible than ever to shoppers loyal to Harris Teeter stores.

As the landscape of the food industry continues to shift with each passing trend, the fourth-generation of the Graeter family continues to handcraft their ice cream with the same process that they have been using since 1870, 2½ gallons at a time. An emerging trend among consumers, craft ice cream is defined as small-batch, locally produced and handcrafted – traits that Graeter’s Ice Cream has embodied for over 145 years. Today, they are the only commercial ice cream manufacturer to use the French Pot process, giving Graeter’s Ice Cream its signature smooth texture and its signature rich chocolate chunks.

“Introducing new consumers to what ice cream should really taste like is always exciting to us at Graeter’s,” shares George Denman, Vice President of Sales for Graeter’s Ice Cream. “Craft ice cream, family made, hand packed — Harris Teeter customers are in for a sweet treat, and we’re excited to bring it to them.”

Graeter’s Ice Cream will be debuting its brand new ice cream truck to Harris Teeter shoppers in a statewide ice cream truck tour beginning June 5 at the Chapel Hill North Harris Teeter location. Harris Teeter shoppers will be able to taste a free 2 oz sample of Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chip, Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip and Original Salted Caramel ice cream outside of various Harris Teeter stores. For a full schedule of tour stops, visit our website.

Harris Teeter, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Company, offers consumers a high-end grocery shopping experience, lining the aisles with well-established brands that shoppers know and trust. Graeter’s Ice Cream’s expansion into Harris Teeter not only mirrors the grocery store’s commitment to bringing their shoppers only the finest products, but also Graeter’s Ice Cream’s commitment to bringing shoppers the very best they have to offer, ice cream unparalleled in quality, texture, and flavor. Flavors available at Harris Teeter are the best-selling Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, the brand new Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip, Coconut Chocolate Chip, The Original Salted Caramel, and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean.

About the Company

Vixen Kitchen Premium Vegan Gelato is a labor of love inspired by my two girls Gigi and Lola. Like most kids, they love sweets. The problem came when I went to read the labels of some of their favorite treats. They were filled with junk created in a chemistry lab instead of a kitchen. So I created this gourmet vegan gelato that I’m confident will satisfy their cravings and my high standards-It’s both delicious and nutritious. It can be enjoyed daily without guilt and its 100% organic! The best part is it’s filled with simple wholesome ingredients even a six-year-old can pronounce. I have created a dessert that tastes amazing, but has the nutritional profile of a super food-densely loaded with minerals, vitamins and healthy fats. Try it for yourself and be amazed!

About the Company
“Through challenge comes inspiration”.  You will find this quote on every cup of Forte Gelato, and it’s not without significant meaning.  Forte Gelato Founder Adrian Pace was born with a congenital heart condition that led Adrian to go through six open-heart surgeries before the age of 39.  Amazingly during all this time, Adrian enjoyed a successful career on Wall Street culminating in his role as General Partner of Pace Capital Partners Hedge Fund. In 2009, after spending over 8 months in a hospital awaiting a heart transplant, Adrian had his inspiration.  After experiencing a variety of foods and unpalatable supplements during that time to sustain his health, Adrian was determined to create a better alternative for getting nutrition and healthy eating. The idea for Forte was born, fueled by the quest to make a healthy treat that is all natural, nutritious and delicious.  He wanted to create something special not just for patients, but for everyone to enjoy.

With 15 grams of protein, only 2.5 grams of fat and an insanely rich and creamy taste and texture, Forte Gelato is proof of his success.  Quality ingredients like rBST-free skim milk and cream, rBST-free milk proteins, organic agave nectar and cage-free egg yolks make each perfectly portioned treat as wholesome as it is decadent. Forte is now available in stores nationally and has become the go to dessert among athletes, nutritionists, families, foodies and healthy lifestyle advocates.

About the Company
We take special pride in our history here at Tillamook. For over a century our farmer-owners have been committed to providing families with the most consistent, best tasting, highest quality dairy products made in the most natural way possible, and our origins stretch back even earlier. It takes a lot of hard work to produce our high-quality dairy products, and it is a long tradition of excellence that makes us who we are today.

“Tillamook” is a Native American word for “Land of Many Waters.” And it’s true: we’ve got 5 rivers, 5 bays, and the Pacific Ocean. The first settlers arrived in the Tillamook Valley in the 1850s (covered wagons and all). The climate, water sources, and constant rain were ideal for dairy farming: cows love nutritious grass, grass loves rain, and rain loves the Tillamook Valley.

Transporting dairy goods by land was tough, so in 1854 we built the Morning Star ship to carry our dairy goods to market. The Morning Star is now on our logo and packaging, as a symbol of our dedication to bringing Tillamook to you. Read More

Frozen Dessert Spotlight: Clover Craft Ice Cream Twelve New Favorites


Meet our twelve new flavorites





Our friends at TCHO in Berkeley craft a unique fair-trade chocolate made exclusively from Ecuadorian cocoa. Its nutty aroma and signature malt flavor are what make our organic chocolate ice cream like nothing else in this world. This is one path to enlightenment, and the only belly you have to rub is your own.






This is vanilla, served straight up. We use only 100% real vanilla fresh from the island of Madagascar and the finest organic milk and cream from right here at home. Add a few toppings if you like. We’ll take ours right out of the carton.





    Nothing brings people together quite like strawberries and cream. Our Strawberry Shindig is made with our own fresh organic milk and cream and comes loaded with lush Watsonville strawberries. And they’re a lively bunch. If you decide to take some home, expect a little bit of company.






    You know it’s a great cup of coffe when you want a whole bowl of it. Every quart of our delicious premium dark roast is brewed by hand, pressed to perfection and balanced perfectly with the finest organic milk and cream. Just look at how much Clo’s enjoying it.






    Our Mint To Be ice cream is made from whole mint springs we get fresh from the farm. Their bright bouquet brings out the very best in our rich dark-chocolate chips and gives our own delicious organic dairy a clean, exhilarating finish. There’s nothing in this world we’d rather spoon.






    The perfect custard is the one you don’t have to wait for. That’s why we decided to make this county fair favorite available year-round. Our Cowlifornia Sweet Cream is made from farm fresh eggs and organic whole milk and cream. Its richness is the stuff of summer. And so long as Clo keeps it coming, it never has to end.






    It’s hard to top the PB&J that Mom used to make. But sorry, Mom, we did. Our PB&C ice cream is made with 100% natural creamy roasted peanut butter, rich pieces of dark chocolate and our finest organic milk and cream for a taste that’s even better than homemade.






    Our hometown is known for eggs, butter, cows and yes, potholes. This ode to rocky road is made with pure, sweet milk chocolate ice cream, roasted almonds and marshmallows brought together and balanced perfectly with the finest organic milk and cream. It’s a pothole you’ll want to hit.






    We make our most distinctive ice cream with California pistachios that are hulled, roasted and buttered, and then blended with the finest organic milk and cream. The result is earthy, rich, subtle and sweet. If you ask us, pistachio makes perfect.






    The good folks at Bear Republic have been winning awards all over the world for their distinctive IPA. Could it ever be an ice cream? The answer is in your hand. We blended their artisan ale with our own fresh organic cream and milk to churn a buttery creation with just a hint of hops. Welcome to happier hour.






    Our friends at Charles Chocolates in San Francisco know how to make a proper English toffee. And we here at Clover are just cheeky enough to mix it into our own luscious batter of vanilla ice cream to form a crunchy, buttery treat that’s impossible to resist.






    Cookies have met their match. And it’s a tall glass of Clover milk. We make our all-time-favorite flavor with chocolate cookies, our own fresh organic milk and cream, and a hearty dose of nostalgia. The result is an experience that recalls childhood, but in a very, very grown-up way.

    Food Spotlight: Snoqualmie Mukilteo Mudd All Natural Ice Cream


    Not two, not three, but FOUR kinds of sustainably sourced Belgian chocolates, made into a smooth, dense ice cream, just for you chocolate lovers. Warning: might bend your spoon.

    cream, milk, skim milk, sugar, bittersweet chocolate (chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), cocoa, eggs, chocolate liquor, vanilla, less than 0.4% of: (locust bean gum, guar gum)



    About the Company
    It started more than fifty years ago, on a New York farm, where I watched my father work hard day in and out to become one of the country’s earliest ‘conservation’ farmers (there was no ‘sustainability’ back then). At a young age, I grew to appreciate the value of re-using materials and natural resources to make better products and a far better world. My father worked this way long before it became popular…simply because it was the right thing to do.

    We never compromise on using only the very best ingredients. That why the ingredients we use in Snoqualmie Ice Cream are homegrown or local whenever possible. Our milk and cream come from a single farm near the Canadian border, from the same group of cows run by a farmer who has never used hormones. We’re even building our own small farm right next to our café so we can grow more of our own ingredients – everything from blackberries and lavender to honey bees and a large chicken coop. And, like our current plant, we’re also planning to use the farm as a showcase for sustainability.

    Family-Owned Ice Cream Company Introduces Five New Flavors to Suit Every Sweet Tooth

    Beloved Graeter’s Ice Cream Expands Selection of Flavors to Provide An Even More Indulgent Dessert Experience


    CINCINNATI, OH (February 27, 2015)- Graeter’s Ice Cream, a super premium craft ice cream brand, has announced the addition of five new flavors to their award winning line of products. Among the new flavors are Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Black Raspberry Gelato, Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch Gelato, Toasted Coconut Gelato, and Bananas Foster Gelato. All five flavors will be released in select grocery stores and will be available online beginning March 5, 2015. In expanding their product line, Graeter’s hopes to give consumers greater freedom when it comes to choosing their favorite flavor, no matter the occasion. These new flavors will please those looking for a nostalgic, yet unique dessert experience.

    For many consumers, one dessert remains their favorite. Even among a world where sweet innovations are at the forefront of the food industry, ice cream continues to stand out. According to QSR Magazine, “Many people, particularly Millennials, are choosing artisan foods, from craft beer to better breads. High-quality, creative ice cream is no different.” Entrepreneurs like Graeter’s Ice Cream are increasingly coming up with unique flavors that remain true to the brand’s original mission. That is, creating the finest, creamiest, most deliciously indulgent ice cream in the world, 2 ½ gallons at a time.

    The newest additions to the Graeter’s Ice Cream family are presented to loyal consumers everywhere with great enthusiasm. “We have a passion for making ice cream,” shares Richard Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter’s Ice Cream. “We spend a great deal of time talking with our consumers, and understanding what they’re looking for in a premium ice cream flavor. From our family to theirs, these new flavors are being introduced with a great deal of excitement and anticipation.”

    All five new Graeter’s Ice Cream and Gelato flavors will hit their respective store shelves in March 2015. Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, a creamy indulgence that incorporates the smooth taste of bourbon with Graeter’s Ice Cream’s signature chocolate chips and crunchy pecans, will be released wherever Graeter’s Ice Cream is currently sold. Each new Gelato flavor, including Black Raspberry, a tart creamy gelato dense with the finest black raspberry flavor, Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch, a rich gelato with bright mint notes, Toasted Coconut, a subtle gelato boasting a sweet coconut flavor, and Bananas Foster, a gelato mimicking the classic banana and rum-infused dessert, will be introduced to select grocery stores throughout the spring. Additionally, all flavors will be available online with an Online Buyer Promotion. This promotion will detail the release of one new flavor each day beginning with Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip and the others following between March 1-5.


    Graeter’s Ice Cream was founded in 1870 after success was found selling their popular French Pot churned ice cream in Cincinnati’s street markets. Once sold in the deli section of a dozen Kroger stores in the 1980’s, Graeter’s Ice Cream is now in over 2,000 Kroger stores from coast to coast and remains a proud producer of craft ice cream. As an emerging trend amongst consumers, craft ice cream is often defined as small-batch, locally produced and handcrafted, traits that have defined Graeter’s Ice Cream for over 145 years. While dairy flavor boundaries, whether nostalgic, indulgent or sheer cutting edge, are being pushed, Graeter’s Ice Cream continues to evolve right there alongside all of them. Today, it is the only commercial ice cream manufacturer to use French Pot freezers, giving their ice cream and gelato its signature creaminess and rich chocolate chunks.

    Dessert Spotlight: Laloo’s Vanilla Snowflake Goat’s Milk Ice Cream



    Inspired by the simple yet complex beauty of a snowflake, our national award-winning vanilla ice cream is so delicate yet so creamy you can serve it with everything from fresh berries to gazpacho. Ask your favorite chef to join you in a blind taste test and you’ll see why Laloo’s® Vanilla Snowflake is often called the holy grail of ice cream (by the Wall Street Journal among others).







    About the Company
    Laloo’s was founded on a commitment to creating a bridge between healthy eating and happiness. We believe that people who care deeply about what they choose for their families and their own bodies, know that goat’s milk is the better choice when it comes to dairy. We all have experienced how ice cream can be that perfect path to happiness in the moment, but the after effects have been unhappy for too many for too long. Laloo’s is made with 100% goat’s milk which means it is higher in nutrient rich proteins and lower in fat, naturally. And goat’s milk is easier to digest for the millions of people who are sensitive to cow’s milk or soy. You won’t find long, complicated ingredients listed on our nutrition panels, just honest goat goodness.
