It was super hot in Ohio yesterday and what is a yummy treat everyone loves to enjoy most any day.. .but especially summer days? ICE CREAM!!!! September 8 is #ConesFor The Cure kick off … the folks at Greaters Ice Cream have teamed up with the Cure Starts Now and I was invited to be a part of their VIP tasting event for bloggers. Talk about a treat….. I not only got to taste amazing flavors from this local business I got to learn more about ways we can all help find a cure for brain cancer.
Beautiful drive yesterday from my home and garden in NW Ohio to Central Ohio for the VIP Blogger event at Graeaters location in Polaris shopping district. In the podcast below you’ll get to hear Nick Whitney who is the director of marketing at Greaters Ice Cream sharing some fun facts about the company and their partnership with The Cure Starts Now….

If you happen to get over to Graeters Ice Cream be sure to check out the large selection. Nick from Graeters told me that Bill Clinton recently was in their location in Cincinnati and loved the Mango Sorbet because he is a Vegan. I tried that flavor while visiting and it is YUMMY!!!!
