Our 2018 Family Faves

WHO: Ellie Brasky, 7, (left) and Viv Gockstetter, 8

WHERE: Graeter's, 2282 E. Main St., Bexley

WHEN: April 12, 2018

THE BACKSTORY: When photo editor Tim Johnson asked Ellie and Viv of Bexley if they'd be willing to eat ice cream and pose for some photos, there wasn't much hesitation. The girls, both students at Maryland Elementary School, headed to Graeter's after class and chose s'mores ice cream in chocolate-dipped waffle cones for their Columbus Parent photo shoot.

Graeter's was one of the winners in our eighth annual Columbus Parent Family Faves reader survey. The family-owned Cincinnati company has taken first place in the Favorite Ice Cream – Multiple Locations category every year since it was added in 2015. Graeter's has 11 Central Ohio ice cream shops as well as a food truck. A Hilliard store also is in the works.
