As a flight attendant, I travel for work quite a bit, and like to sample the local fare during my travels. My first time in Louisville
, a local suggested I had to try their fabulous locally-made ice cream
at an innocuous looking shoppe located right next to our hotel.
As a self-proclaimed ice cream connoisseur, I was skeptical about how good it could possibly be. Yet, after my first bite of peanut butter buckeye blitz
, I was hooked. I proceeded to recommend Graeter's to every co-worker of mine I knew who was spending the night in Louisville.
I was so enamoured with Graeter's that when I was stumped about what to get my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary, I was struck by a dairy-licious idea. I paid the rather pricey shipping costs to have 8 pints shipped to Mom and Dad direct from Graeter's, or Ice Cream Heaven
as I prefer to call it. Even after the long journey from Ohio, the ice cream was as yummy as ever and Graeter's now has two more NJ fans!

My daughter, Michelle introduced us to Graeter's. As she has been traveling the country as a flight attendant for the past few years, she has gotten to try the best of everything this country has to offer.
Here in NJ, we have some good ice cream, but had never heard of Graeter's. One day Michelle called and told us she just had the best ice cream EVER. As ice cream is our favorite thing to eat, we, too, were anxious to try this product. Then, surprisingly, some arrived on our doorstep. Michelle had some sent to us for an anniversary present. What a treat! We especially loved the Buckeye Blitz and couldn't believe the amount of pieces (Chocolate, peanut butter cookie) it contained.
Thank you Michelle, for introducing us, and thank you Graeter's for making it.
