Screaming for Ice Cream

Chill out and scoop on this quintessential summer sweet! If you need an excuse to eat more ice cream this summer, we’ve got the scoop. Not only will we be hosting an Ice Cream Social noon-4 p.m. Saturday, July 21, at all three stores, but we’re also having a summer scoop sale this weekend (through July 22) featuring select brands of ice cream so you can share a pint with someone you love.

We carry some really cool (no pun intended) brands, with so many unique flavor combos. Keep reading below to hear a little bit about each.

VAN LEEUWEN ARTISAN ICE CREAM

This trendy Brooklyn-based ice cream is made with gorgeous high quality ingredients and has fun flavors like Honeycomb, Peanut Butter Marshmallow Crunch, and Earl Grey Tea. Vegan flavors also available!

COOLHAUS AWESOME ICE CREAM

Two women launched Coolhaus in 2009 with a barely drivable postal van at Coachella, a music festival. Now they have two scoop shops and a presence in a handful of retail stores, including DLM! The Milkshake & Fries flavor is all the rage with shoestring, crispy potatoes nestled within! Also cool is the Campfire S’mores, Dirty Mint Chip, and Buttered French Toast.

NEW ORLEANS ICE CREAM COMPANY

We’re melting for this ice cream that pays homage to the food-centric culture of Louisiana. Whether it be flavors like Coffee & Chicory, Baked Alaska, Bananas Foster, or Cherries Jubilee, these pints are singing the blues of the Big Easy in the best of ways.

JENI’S SPLENDID ICE CREAM

If you’re from Ohio, then you know this Love Local fave from Columbus. Jeni is indeed the woman behind this ice cream sensation and the James Beard award-winning chef who created the trend of Salty Caramel. Other favorite flavors of ours are Frosé Sorbet, Gooey Butter Cake, and Brambleberry Crisp.

DLM GELATO

Having quite an affection for all things gustatory from Italy, we knew we wanted to bring a gelato under the DLM private label umbrella. We found a local purveyor in Cincinnati and the rest is history. Look for favorite flavors like Killer Brownie® or Madagascar Vanilla, which is so dense with a rich vanilla bean flavor.

GRAETER’S

What would an ice cream article be without mention of Love Local Graeter’s? Not only do that keep all the Fiona hippo fans happy with their limited edition Chunky Chunky Hippo, but they keep our ice cream bowls full all year long with favorites.

HOMEMADE BRAND ICE CREAM

Look for Homemade Ice Cream featured at our Ice Cream Social this weekend.

As the Cincinnati-founded chain United Dairy Farmers grew, the Homemade Brand of ice cream was born in 1982 and has quickly become a freezer staple in homes across the country, boasting a Cookies ‘n Cream flavor made with real Oreo® cookies.
