A local sighting of Graeter's ice cream! (Lunds in Minnetonka)

For the uninitiated, Graeter's is a Cincinnati-based ice cream shop that has very slowly started selling pints of their ice cream in other parts of the country.

A friend just bought some today at the Lunds on Highway 7 in Minnetonka, so it appears that the Twin Cities has been added to the list. (although gives no indication of this)

I think it's the best ice cream there is, bar none. Yes, I am biased because I grew up on the stuff, but others (Oprah, etc) have publicly agreed. Especially notable are their chocolate "chips" that are somehow soft on the tooth and also so varied in size that it's not impossible to find one that can't be eaten in one bite. (!)

If you're in the neighborhood and decide to spend $5 to try a pint, I must suggest the black raspberry chocolate chip if you're into that sort of flavor combination. Otherwise, go with the chocolate-chocolate chip.

Here's a thread with some others' opinions on Graeter's:
