CINCINNATI -- Graeter's announced Wednesday the launch of a product expansion plan coming to stores in January.
The 144-year-old company has created two new product lines, Gelato and A Little Less Indulgent, expected to hit Graeter's shelves on Jan. 16.
The new gelato line is "authentic," resembling the traditional Italian gelato. According to Graeter's, they use a French pot process, which uses the same old-world freezing process used by the Italians. Gelato usually has less air than American ice creams and half the butterfat content.
Graeter's gelato flavors will include: Caramel truffle, hazelnut truffle, vanilla with milk chocolate truffles and dark chocolate truffles.
The second new product, A Little Less Indulgent, stands apart from other reduced-sugar ice cream varieties because of a natural sugar product made from Monk fruit extract. The ice cream eatery says the sugar is 150 times sweeter than regular sugar. This new line has 50 percent less sugar than other similar products, with 25 percent fewer calories than Graeter's regular ice cream.
