Speaking of local businesses-- Jeff Ruby usually has a steak named after local athletes/coaches, etc. Has he considered the BDF Porterhouse?

Seriously?01-wingedeagle

Yes, seriously. And I don't care what Oprah thinks.

I prefer ice cream that has flavor and tastes like something other than sugar. I truly think UDF is much better.

This is the first thing I agree with Oprah on. As to her being right, even a blind pig finds an acorn.

RE: Graeters - Boldly Bearcat
As someone who enjoys both Graeter's and UDF Homemade brand, I also recognize that these are very different products and price points. Graeter's stands among the finest super premium ice creams on the planet and is priced accordingly. UDF Homemade is among the best choices in the grocery store/mass market category and I always like to support hometown products.

UC just needs to find a way to get the C-Paw on one of those products and keep building the brand, piece by piece, or chip by chip in this case.

This exactly my hope. Getting the C-paw on a pint of Graeters is just one more piece of brand exposure that UC needs. If, this weekend, we as fans can show there is a demand for this ice cream, I'm hoping they will put it in their stores and maybe the the ice cream aisle at grocery stores. Like the article states, that happened with the Hippo flavor. Why not the UC flavor?

I also agree with your take on the two brands being discussed.

I've never been a Graeter's fan. They just overload you with butterfat rather than any purity or complexity of flavor. FWIW, Jeni's Ice Cream was called the best in the US by the NY Times, and I agree. Unfortunately, they price it as such. 10 bucks for a pint of ice cream, and I'll pass.

Was waiting for someone to mention Jeni's. I love it but at the price point I only eat it on rare occurrences. Kroger's been having it on sale recently for $7.99/pint which helps a bit. I'm also a believer that certain brands do certain flavors best and I buy accordingly depending on what I'm looking for.

Props to UC and Graeters for this collaboration though and expanding the brand. We need to see more of it with our local companies. Waiting on a beer from MadTree or Rhinegeist.

I've seen it mentioned multiple places that numerous local breweries would love to make a UC-themed beer, but our branding department won't allow it. I've got a serious bone to pick with our branding department: they are WAY too stingy. A few examples of who they tell to go pound sand:

1. Local breweries, as mentioned.

2. UC students... a former classmate used an image of the Cincinnati skyline as a "company logo" PURELY for a class project, and was contacted by the branding department to either pay them royalties (for a class project which was taking in NO MONEY) or change their logo... so I guess UC owns the city's skyline? Bullcrap.

3. The UC Marching Band... it took YEARS to convince the branding department to allow the band's color guard to use flags with a C-paw. They were fighting it back when I was in school, and they finally gave in just this season. It's asinine that the university's own marching band wasn't allowed to use the university logo.

4. UC fans... it sounds like Under Armour had to pay some goons to strongarm them, Goodfellas style, to finally allow the throwback C-paw on last year's basketball jerseys. It took significant fan outcry for them to allow a very limited apparel run, which flew off shelves.

They do some good work at the branding department, but for chrissake... lighten up, Francis.

I absolutely hate Jeni's, and think their flavors are extremely overrated. If I am paying $5 for a scoop of ice cream it better be bigger than a spoonful. Jeni's is also a great way to get Listeria.

Take quake!

Udf is good

Greaters is transcendent

Mostly agreed although I'd bump UDF Homemade up to very good and often a great value on sale ($2.99 for the 1.5Q at Remke's last week and $1/pint at Krogers a few weeks ago). Peanut Butter N Chip is usually my go-to, but I'll mix it up - just picked up a Homemade Pumpkin Pie ice cream to check out that I'll have to crack open soon.

Graeters is indeed transcendent. I don't end up getting it very often, but Aglamesis is usually right there with it in the base (non-chip) flavors.

Jenni's is overrated and way overpriced compared to the above from what I've tried.

RE: Graeters - Boldly Bearcat
i'll tell you what sounds like a good idea but it just fails so miserably; the helltown float from dojo gelato. it's mexican coke, espresso, and i think ice cream. what's so miserable is you just aren't sure if it tastes good. i'll probably get another to find out

i see that braxton just teamed up with graeters for a pumpkin beer. i'm sick of pumpkin beer

Love a good pumpkin beer. There are plenty of bad ones though. I mostly stick to Pumpking if I'm getting pumpkin beer and generally will only have one as a change of pace from my Pale Ales and IPAs.

Release whenever you want. I'm good. I do miss Madtree's Entropic IPA already. That was a great beer I enjoyed all summer.

Aglamesis is > than Graeter's IMHO. Also prefer the local mom and pop places like Don's Creamy Whip (Reading), Loveland Dairy Whip, The Zip Dip and Putz's over on the west side over the two bigger chains.
