Three Local Ice Cream Brands Offer New Flavors

These hometown favorite ice cream companies each unveiled new delicious flavors recently.
JUNE 2022


With temperatures heating up in the Queen City, there’s no better time to stock up on your favorite local ice cream flavors—or check out a few new ones. Here are three new offerings from beloved local brands, just in time for summer.

This year, Graeter’s is debuting five limited edition bonus flavors, starting with this month’s new strawberry cheesecake. These flavors are different from both seasonal and year-round ones–once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good so act fast. While the Cincinnati institution already offers a seasonal strawberry chip flavor (available in April and May only), its strawberry cheesecake combines mascarpone ice cream with strawberry bits and graham cracker crust crumbles. And the company’s next bonus flavor, frozen hot chocolate, was released today, June 6; it’s rich combination of milk chocolate ice cream, marshmallows, and a hint of spice is waiting for you. Graeter’s fans can find both flavors in any of its “scoop shops” around the city, order pints online, or through the Graeter’s app.

JUNE 2022United Dairy Farmers
Starting this month, fans of United Dairy Farmers’ ice cream have a new line of flavors to check out. If you’ve been to a UDF store recently you may have noticed signs for Main Avenue Creamery, a new super-premium line with all ice cream bases and inclusions made in-house, using no artificial ingredients. It’s named after the street that was home to the first UDF store–Main Avenue in Norwood (now known as Montgomery Road). Pints are available in eight flavors, including black raspberries and chips, a sweet-cream blend of black raspberries and dark chocolate chips, and vanilla bean, which features a special blend of Tahitian, Madagascar, and Indonesian vanillas. Don’t worry–this new line isn’t replacing either the Homemade or UDF lines. MAC is available at any UDF location and at select Kroger stores.

Looking for something a little more Southern? On your next trip to Kroger, Walmart, or Meijer, pick up a pint of Creamalicious Artisan Ice Cream. The company, founded by Queen City-based chef Liz Rogers, current owner of Wing Champ in Sharonville, turns Southern dessert favorites (such as peach cobbler and sweet potato pie) into delicious, high-quality ice creams. The company’s most recent offering is Uncle Charles Brown Shuga Bourbon Cake, which features bourbon ice cream and rich pieces of bourbon cake with a brown sugar finish. Ingredients include real bourbon, molasses, and buttermilk. And as of June 10, you can get a pint of sweet tea ice cream, a partnership between Creamalicious and McAlister’s Deli. Pints can also be ordered online at
