REVIEW: Graeter's Buckeye Blitz (AKA Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip)


After stopping through a Graeter’s scoop shop and picking up Jazzberry Crunch, I was a little disappointed that there weren’t any other limited edition options still available. I hadn’t seen Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip in my area in some time, so I decided to go for another re-scoop, which in Ohio means picking up a pint of Buckeye Blitz. Graeter’s says, "Just like the Buckeye Candy, this has a chocolate-peanut butter base with peanut butter cookie dough pieces and dark chocolate chips. Not just like the Buckeye Candy, this is ice cream. Graeter’s, the world’s best," and at 360 calories per serving, this is one of the densest ice creams we’ve reviewed.


The thick base ice cream provides a well-balanced attack of both chocolate and peanut butter, an approach that’s rarely seen. Most companies choose one or the other rather than combining the two together. If the actual ice cream wasn’t impressive enough, Graeter’s tosses in their signature chocolate chips. A few of the ones in this pint ended up being much larger than my actual spoon, which happens often when we’re talking Graeter’s. The fact that they've also included balls of peanut butter cookie dough is just overkill at this point. These chewy mix-ins put Buckeye Blitz among the elite ice creams in our rankings.
