I got the best email the other day. It pretty much read, “would you like to sample some ice cream?” Um, yeah. Do you really need ask a girl if she wants to sample some ice cream? Might as well just send it and assume no one will turn down the mail man when he comes knocking.

Graeter’s Ice Cream quickly shipped out 6 pints of their signature flavors in a sturdy styrofoam cooler with dry ice and it arrived pretty much over night and really …uh, annoyed Handsome by telling him we couldn’t eat any until I could figure out how to review it. Not one bite.

I read that this ice cream was featured on Oprah, and if she says it’s good, the whole world knows about it and wants it. But I don’t watch Oprah, and I’m not down with reading her magazine reviews, so I was clueless.

What I can say about Graeter’s is that it’s the only time I’ve ‘sampled’ more than a spoonful of chocolate ice cream. Normally, I hate it,  but there is something about their chocolate that isn’t too thick or artificial tasting. There are chunks of delicious chocolate that are soft to the bite, and yet still tact and firm. Not like that one time I broke a tooth…

The black raspberry flavor has large chunks of black raspberries in it. No difference with strawberry, and the vanilla is so simple and smooth, it’s just pleasant to enjoy one spoonful at a time.

This ice cream is also very, very scoop-able, making it really hard to prep for photographs. It’s so soft, there is no struggle with the spoon. I thought maybe my freezer had just changed its setting, but I had another brand in the same freezer and well, we’ll just say my spoon was not as happy to be in that container.

I did check the Graeter’s website after licking the bowl clean to find out if it was stocked any where near me. It’s not. 🙁

But they do offer mail order, and if it is nearly as quick and efficient as my samples, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

Now let’s make some homemade ice cream sandwiches with it!
