When life gives you a bunch of holiday flavored ice cream and oatmeal cookies, you make ice cream sandwiches! Just grab and eat while continuing to put up that holiday décor or while watching Christmas Vacation (for the 100th time). Today I sandwiched Graeter’s hand made ice cream in-between two freshly baked oatmeal cookies, and it was OMG fabulous! Salted Caramel, Cinnamon, Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Egg Nog… the list goes on and on, and they’re all so creamy and delicious. Let me tell you, this holiday season, it’s worth the splurge!
I know, you’re probably thinking it’s cold outside and who could possibly be craving ice cream this time of year. Here’s the thing, these holiday flavors will have you craving ice cream on the coldest day in December. Crazy right? This time of year it seems like we eat the same treats over and over again. Pies, cheesecake, sugar cookies… why not switch things up with some delicious ice cream?
So here’s the scoop. The Graeter’s legacy started back in 1870 and through 5 generations, Graeter’s has always remained a family owned and operated business even to this day. Graeter’s is the only mass produced ice cream company that continues to make their ice cream the old fashioned way, remaining true to the French Pot Process. This process incorporates 2 ½ gallons at a time resulting in ice cream that is so thick and dense that it has to be hand packed. It also results in seriously delicious ice cream.
The best part about Graeter’s is that consumers can easily order online; creating their own custom mix and match gift box for a truly unique gift that is guaranteed to arrive frozen anywhere in the U.S. So you can give the gift of ice cream this holiday season! How awesome is that? I know almost all of you have that one person on your list who you have no idea what to get them. Well now you can get them the best gift, well, ever. Ice cream!
