Cincinnati Ice Cream Brand Celebrates Today’s Trends with New Addition
CINCINNATI, OH (September 23, 2016) – Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 146-year-old, family owned craft ice cream brand, is proud to announce the launch of a new mainstay ice cream flavor. The newest additions to the brand’s menu of preferred ice cream treats includes Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip, available now in scoop shops and in pints at retail stores nationwide at an SRP of $5.49. The new variety introduces a flavor profile not yet offered by Graeter’s Ice Cream while boasting the same decadence and quality that consumers expect of the Cincinnati-based company.
The new Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip is a variation of Graeter’s signature Salted Caramel – a staple since the company’s beginnings in the early 1900’s. Although caramel is a flavor that is trending across all categories within the food industry, Graeter’s inclusion of it on its menu speaks not only to the brand’s commitment to remaining true to what it does best but also to its ability to lead the trends. Regina Graeter’s original recipe and old-world French Pot process have stood the test of time – even as mass-produced ice cream floods the market. Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip is an ode to her time-tested recipe.
“We decided to launch the Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip flavor to bring our fans the original Graeter’s French Pot recipe they love, updated to suit the modern consumer’s palate,” shares George Denman, Vice President of Sales for Graeter’s Ice Cream. “Bringing this variety to market offers our loyal consumers the artisanal and craft flavors they crave. It also offers the allure of new flavors that differentiate themselves from the others on the shelf.”
Graeter’s Ice Cream produces craft ice cream using the small batch, artisanal, French Pot process, dating back over a century. Graeter’s has won the hearts of ice cream enthusiasts across the country as well as the respect of the nation’s most influential foodies. Winner of the 2015 Munchie Award for best ice cream in the United States, the Cincinnati-based company remains family owned and operated and continues to handcraft ice cream 2½ gallons at a time. Today, Graeter’s has more than 50 retail stores and ship over 300,000 pints annually for online mail order sales. Graeter’s can also be found in more than 6,000 grocery stores in 46 states.
