CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Graeter’s unveiled their new permanent ice cream flavor – Cheese Crown!

The debut took place on FOX19 NOW during our 8 o’clock hour. Graeter’s has been making Cheese Crown’s for 50 years and it’s their most popular pastry. The ice cream is clearly sweet with pieces of their famous Cheese Crowns in the dessert.

CEO Richard Graeter says the company creates dozens of new flavors during January and February and the top six or eight are released for a limited time during the summer months; the flavor of ice cream that gets the biggest response from customers will end up being a permanent flavor.

The process to find a fan favorite has been taking place for decades and Richard Graeter tells us it’s not uncommon to find staff tasting new recipes at 8 a.m. during winter months. He adds customer feedback, food shows and flat out experimenting are how they discover new flavors. Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip was the winner in 2015.

Graeter’s says staff will go back to the creation room to formulate new flavors next January.
