Jeni’s Splendid

Any readers enjoy ice cream? Yeah, me neither… ;-)

There is a terrific little ice cream chain in Columbus, Ohio called Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. My boy Raven told me about them a while back and my husband Greg and I had a couple of opportunities to give them a try.

We stopped by Jeni’s on the way out of town after spending a day at the Ohio State Fair last summer*. Greg tried three flavors and I tried three other ones. Check them out:

All of them were fantastic. I know pretty much none of you readers will be able to try Jeni’s, but I want to encourage you to try any kind of gourmet ice cream shop that may be near you. It is so much better than the mass-produced stuff you find in the supermarket.

*Weirdly and coincidentally, my boy Blobby published a blog post about Jeni’s Ice Cream the same day I was going to publish one last summer, so I deferred, lest I be called a copy cat. Then I forgot to publish my post at all! Oh well, I’m publishing it now.

Looks delicious! Nothing like those flavours in my hick town, but we do have a fairly large Italian community so there is some fantastic and (I think) authentic Italian gelato to be found.

Alas, no ice cream for me :-(

I like a nice sorbet but ice cream, just doesn’t do it for me.

I’ve tried a few of Jeni’s flavours and am not a fan. I want to be, but after a bite or two, it’s just either ‘eh’ or way overwhelming – and at $9.99 a pint (PINT!, not quart!), I want more than ‘eh’.

I’m sold.
