Esther Price Candies and Graeters Ice Cream

If you're looking for something SWEET to EAT in Cincinnati, there are TWO places you should definitely visit!

First up is Esther Price Candies. Esther Price Candies was founded in 1926 and the company's headquarters are in Dayton, Ohio. They have over 87 store locations in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois and Indiana and they produce about one million boxes of candy per year.

Esther Price chocolates are readily available in Dayton-Cincinnati grocery stores and online. The company to this day continues the tradition of old fashioned quality using the same recipes that Esther Price (1905 - 1994) herself perfected years ago. I personally love their caramel pecans and other chocolate mementos.

How about a SCOOP or two or three? 

Almost everyone loves ice cream! If you're a fan of it like me, definitely stop by Graeters in Cincinnati. It's super delish.

Every time I'm in town I definitely make sure to visit and my friend Leah sent me several pints of this yummy goodness for my birthday last year. Yes, they ship! Isn't that fabulous!!!

Graeters was founded in 1870. Handmade chocolate confections, freshly baked goods and tons of ice cream are what you'll find here. The company still uses century old recipes established by the founder Louis C. Graeter and methods of production.

For my visit this time, I ordered a brownie sundae with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, whipped topping and nuts. It was so good!

What's in STORE for tomorrow? Well for the Grand Cincy Finale Blog Post, I did a little BEAUTY shopping while I was there. I'll show you what I bought, what stores I went to and I had a very unique experience.  
Hear all about it tomorrow guys!

FYI: My regular beauty and fashion posts return after Friday!


  1. I do believe that I would put her place right out of business, as I would eat all of it :)))) How wonderful, I have a huge sweet tooth. I liked this a lot & glad you featured it. Have a sweet day doll :)

  2. Living in Ohio my whole life, I have never heard of Ester Price candies. That is a shame! Graeters is delicious, but my favorite ice cream is Johnson's Ice Cream in Bexley. Next time you are in Ohio, you should definitely check it out. Heather
