“Staying true to our Cincinnati roots, it made sense to honor the 25th anniversary of the Flying Pig Marathon with an ice cream release,” said Chip Graeter, a fourth-generation co-owner of Graeter’s, in a news release. “Beyond runners and fans, we think Flying Pig Tracks is a flavor everyone will enjoy and we’re happy to offer it in all of our shops throughout the Midwest.”

The Flying Pig Tracks flavor is packed with peanut butter cups and chocolate fudge, according to the release. The flavor was released today to scoop shops, followed by select Kroger, Jungle Jim’s and Dorothy Lane stores in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. It is also available online at
