Graeter’s Ice Cream, a family-owned craft ice cream maker since 1870, is celebrating its 150th birthday with the creation of a special ice cream flavor. The new flavor, Birthday Cake, was released on July 1, coinciding with National Ice Cream Month and in celebration of Graeter’s 150th birthday. Graeter’s said the limited-edition flavor is a celebratory blend of cake pieces and sprinkles in cake batter ice cream.

According to Cincinnati-based Graeter’s, friends and fans may try the flavor by visiting area scoop shops; it is also available in Kroger, Giant Eagle, The Fresh Market, Dorothy Lane Market and Jungle Jim’s stores. The ice cream is available for sale online, too — while supplies last.

Alongside the brand’s 150th birthday celebration, Graeter said it also will maximize the summertime months with its annual bonus flavor schedule; the first new bonus flavor launched on July 6. Different than years past, Graeter’s will be offering special discounts and perks to its loyal fan base on the Graeter’s app all month long. Local delivery and curbside pickup ordering are also available on the Graeter’s app. The app is available for download on the App Store and Google Play.

"Our anniversary year certainly hasn’t turned out the way we initially thought it would," shared Richard Graeter, fourth-generation family member, president and CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream. "However, we still think the world needs something worth celebrating. With new flavors such as our 150th Birthday Cake to kick off the summer, we guarantee we’ll be able to offer consumers a taste of joy and happiness in 2020.”
