If you’ve been to a Graeter’s shop (in southern Ohio or northern Kentucky), you’re already familiar with this incredibly smooth and dense ice cream, made from a secret custard recipe, two gallons at a time. The huge, soft chocolate “chips” come from pouring liquid chocolate into the frozen ice cream. Our favorite flavors are black raspberry chip (lots of real raspberry flavor without being too sweet) and coconut chip (lots of coconut flavor with plenty of chocolate and coconut bits). Your pints arrive overnight, packed for travel with dry ice.

Graeter’s Ice Cream, $70 for six pints or $110 for 12 pints, your choice of flavors, overnight shipping included
