Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 151-year-old, family-owned craft ice cream brand, announces its 2021 Mystery Flavor: Caramel Macchiato. The new flavor will be available in scoop shops and Graeter’s online store. It will also be available in select grocery stores, including Kroger, Giant Eagle, Jewel, Dorothy Lane Market and Jungle Jim’s over the following weeks. This fan favorite flavor was enthusiastically received by consumers during a short test period last summer.
Caramel Macchiato, transforms consumers’ favorite morning drink into their new favorite ice cream flavor — smooth coffee ice cream with crunchy toffee pieces and milk chocolate caramel truffles. The 2021 Mystery Flavor represents Graeter’s commitment to quality and, like all of Graeter’s other flavors, is handcrafted with the brand’s classic French Pots® in 2 ½ gallon batches.
“We skipped our annual Mystery Flavor celebration last year, in lieu of our 150th Birthday Cake introduction in July, and found that our fans and our team really missed the anticipation and fun surrounding this annual occurrence,” shares Chip Graeter, 4th generation family member. “We’re eager to bring some March fanfare back into the lives of our fans with this exceptionally delicious flavor.”
Graeter’s annual Mystery Flavor celebrates the addition of another everyday flavor from the previous year’s bonus flavors.
