Food is a universal language that needs little translation. Perhaps that’s why John Boehner reached across the aisle and sent Nancy Pelosi a treat in the form of pints of Graeter’s handcrafted ice cream and gelato for her 74th birthday.

The former Speaker of the House thanked her successor for the “delicious taste” from his district and shared a picture via Instagram.

"Great to see speaker Boehner sharing the love of Graeter's" wrote Chip Graeter, Chief of Retail Operations, in an email to the Enquirer. "Also nice to see them getting along and having some fun with it!"

Our Process Makes All The Difference

By Ice Cream Stories January 9, 2014 No comments



One of the main things that makes Graeter’s handcrafted ice cream so unique is the French Pot Process. It’s the same way that our founder, Louis Charles Graeter, made ice cream in the late 1800’s.

So What Does The Process Look Like?

We start with the finest ingredients, mixed all together and pasteurized to develop the best possible flavor profiles. What happens next is what truly makes Graeter’s so special.

We take our creamy mixture, pour it into 2-gallon French Pot freezers and hand-swirl each batch until it’s slowly frozen without whipping in air. This is what gives Graeter’s ice cream it’s creamy texture. Once the batch is frozen, we hand-pack each pint before shipping it out to your local Graeter’s, local grocery store, or directly to your home address.

To get a better idea of what this looks like, check out this animation explaining our process.

Or view a real tour of our process.
