A Graeter’s Fan Raises High Praise For His Hometown Ice CreamPrint
Recently, we heard from Robert in Atlanta on how he rediscovered his favorite gourmet ice cream from childhood, while on the road for a business trip. Our expansion efforts around the country sure are making Graeter's fans around the country quite happy. Hear his story in his own words below about how Robert found proof of Graeter's highest commitment to quality, and how a pint of Graeter's can weigh as much as an entire pound!
“True story: I grew up in Louisville, and Graeter's was just my hometown ice cream. It wasn't until I moved away, and then came back to Louisville and had Graeter's again after an extended period did I realize how FREAKING AMAZING your ice cream is.
Bittersweet though as my life had led and settled me in Atlanta. This meant Graeter's was my rarest of delicacies, only obtainable in Louisville or Cincinnati. Grrrr.
Then we found it on a work trip in Houston, Texas! PRAISE GOD!! Even purchased an entire box of plastic spoons just so we could sit in the car, in the parking lot of the Kroger and get the most awesome foodie fix of my life.
We then started ordering online. Brilliant! Then the glorious day came when you were available at a few local Kroger's, then MANY Kroger's!! Life is complete.
Which leads me to yesterday, shopping. I picked up a pint of toffee for me, and a pint of another brand for my partner. (Don't hate me. He likes those ice creams that taste like blueberry muffins and such.) Having both pints in my hands, I made a discovery.
I've told myself your slightly higher price meant just better quality. Here, in my hands I now have proof!! Your pint was WAY heavier in my hand; so much so that I stopped and compared both cartons to be sure they were both a pint. Indeed!!!
You keep doing what you're doing, don't change a thing and you have at least one guaranteed customer for the rest of his life.”
