In my opinion the very best ice cream I have ever had -and I've had a lot, is that produced by Graeters. Graeters has a few stores in Cinncinnati(where they started) and Columbus Ohio and Lexington and Louisville Kentucky.
They claim to be the oldest manufacturer of ice cream in the United States.
Their ice cream is simply to die for, especially their chocolate chip(actually chocolate chunk) flavors.
Recently they added the ability to ship their product overnight via their website. This last Christmas I spent over $2,000 having their ice cream shipped to numerous people. One of my biggest clients said that his wife's response to the ice cream was far greater than he has ever received from the tens of thousands in jewelry he has spent on her. It is that good!!!
