Pistachio makes a comeback at Graeter's!

Pistachio, absent from Graeter's lineup for 15 years, makes a return to its seasonal ice cream menu for November and December. "We think our customers will enjoy the Italian favorite that's also great for the holidays," said Richard Graeter, executive vice president. Pistachio ice cream is light-green and has lots of texture from the pistachio nuts, a Middle Eastern delicacy familiar in the red-dyed shells, a California-raised nut in the natural tan shells. Three other seasonal flavors returning are cinnamon and peppermint for November and December, plus Graeter's eggnog ice cream for December only.

Oh dear, there's been some horrible mistake. Graeter's isn't available out here.

Send me a pint? :)

PS How would you rate them as compared to HD and B&J?

dear liz,

no mistake. you simply must schedule a little road trip here, that's all! ;-)

as for comparisons to HD or B&J--i'm afraid there really is none! Graeter's is a super premium, small batch ice cream (kind of like your gin!). even Oprah has been known to succumb to its charms--and order it UPS'ed to her palatial abodes!

it IS rather pricey outside the city, though a lot of expats (?) will break down and order it when the craving gets to be too much. here's the
pricing info

locally it's around $3.95 a pint, with chip flavors about 50 cents more.

Well, they can ship it actually. I have had it sent to me before, but not all the way out here. It was from Cincy to Dayton and it was a wedding present to my ex and I....

Yikes! Might be a more cost-effective to hop in the car and fetch it myself. Hmmm... Road trip you say???
