Sinfully good. Decadent. Rich and creamy. All are words to describe Graeter’s new ice cream flavor Black Cherry Chocolate Chip. Seriously, to die for!
My husband, who is an ice cream aficionado (take my word for it, he is), simply adores the new flavor from Graeter’s. Now being the manly man he is, I’m not sure if “simply adores” is the correct words. Let me ask him…
Okay, his exact words were, “The Black Cherry Chocolate Chip is awesome!” Sheesh. Being an ice cream aficionado, you’d think he could come up with a better description than that, right? He is right though, it is awesome!
Well he is a man of few words, plus it’s hard to talk when you’re scarfing down a pint of Graeter’s ice cream.
Personally, I loved every last bite of the Black Cherry Chip ice cream. Nice chunks of real cherry and dark chocolate that I just wanted to let linger on my tongue.
As most of my readers know, I’m on a weight loss journey, so I hesitated for a brief moment on whether I wanted to even try the Graeter’s new Black Cherry Chocolate Chip ice cream flavor… but then I came to my senses. Besides, as I’ve been saying, “Everything in moderation.” I am not depriving myself. And depriving myself of this ice cream would be a travesty.
Graeter’s has perfected our traditional French Pot process, making the world’s finest ice cream just two gallons at a time. It’s the only way to achieve the irresistible creaminess that is Graeter’s.
Our secret recipe of fresh cream and egg custard is gently swirled along the chilled sides of a slowly spinning French Pot Freezer. As the creamy blend thickens, a blade softly scrapes the sides of the pot, folding the ice cream into itself. Then we add the fresh ingredients to complete our unique flavors.
The gentle folding process prevents air from whipping into our ice cream and accounts for the extremely dense and creamy consistency. Where a typical pint of ice cream can weigh as little as 8 ounces, a Graeter’s pint weighs nearly a full pound! Graeter’s ice cream is so rich and creamy that we have to pack every pint by hand.
I’ve saved my son’s opinion on the new flavor for last. Only because he prefers just chocolate or vanilla. He loves the Vanilla with Chocolate Chips. He did try the Black Cherry Chocolate Chip, and said it was good, but he’d prefer to stick with the Vanilla. He’s young, but I have no doubt that one day he will be an ice cream aficionado like his Dad, and love all the Graeter’s ice cream flavors.
I highly recommend trying any Graeter’s ice cream flavor, but the new Black Cherry Chocolate Chip… is to die for!
