Dense, smooth and full of egg custard, it's Ohio's most addictive ice cream.. In Short The oldest ice cream company in America, Graeter's uses the time-consuming French Pot production process, which, unlike most techniques, isn't whipped up by air. Every scoop is thick enough to be a meal in itself. Standard flavors range from butter pecan to vanilla, and several--like black raspberry-- come with giant chocolate chips. Seasonal offerings like pumpkin and key lime pie, appear on chalkboards at every location. Stop by the Bethel Road location for a free, self-guided factory tour.
