The Graeter’s Ice Cream pint you know and love is getting a makeover for its biggest milestone yet 

Graeter’s Ice Cream has had such a busy summer that they decided to get a makeover while they were at it.

“The Graeter’s pints will feature a darker color palate, straying away from the traditional white packaging that frequents ice cream freezer doors. The darker color scheme conveys the indulgence of the Graeter’s flavor profiles, especially Graeter’s famous dark chocolate chips, intentionally maximizing space usage and composition. The simple, clean and traditional look reflects the lavish flavors unique to Graeter’s and seeks to reinforce the passion the Graeter family has for making generations of memories with the families they serve,” according to a Graeter’s press release.
