I always love when I find someone new to Cincinnati ice cream. Most people all say Graeter’s is the best – but I have a soft spot (in mah belly) for UDF as well.
First up, Graeter’s…
I went for cookie dough chip and she went for chocolate chocolate chip. Amazing as usual…I practically licked my bowl.
There’s really no commenting you can do – Graeter’s is creamy and delicious. If you’ve never had it – the standout really is the “chips”. They’re huge – they’re like half a chocolate bar.
My favorite Graeter’s story is when I sent the Black Raspberry Chip & Montgomery Inn package from CincyFavorites.com to my Iowa friends for Christmas. I got a phone call from Amy and her 4 year old (my adorable boy) was covered in purple ice cream and had a message for me, “Thith ith the betht ithe cream EVER!!!!!” How can you not love that?
Should also mention – Graeter’s has chocolates, candies and a lot more than just ice cream.
Then – on every other corner – there’s a UDF. When I moved here I had no idea what the hell a UDF was – now I can’t live without them.
I really love the ice cream – there are two brands – UDF and Homemade. There are $$ specials and flavor specials every month – this month – PEANUT BUTTER! There are:
- Homemade Brand Peanut Butter ‘N Chip
- UDF Brand Mini PB Cups & Fudge
- UDF Brand Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
I’ve been addicted to the last one – it’s peanut butter ice cream with chunks of cookie dough. Oye- so amazing! I actually bought a hand-packed pint last night because I just couldn’t resist!
UDF also has the Graeter’s-traditional flavor of Black Raspberry Chip – their chips are much more like “chips” you’re used to getting in store-bought ice cream. It’s all good either way but not nearly the “wow” factor of Graeter’s.
UDF – as many know – also has gas, milk and all the other convenience store type of accouterments (love using that word – reminds me of Michael from the Office).
