Eat In. Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream.

I'm not sure if there's anything better then really good ice cream. There are some things that come close, but a scoop of amazing ice cream can make my day.

At a friend's house recently I saw the amazing funky flavors of Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream in the freezer. There was the seasonal sweet corn with black raspberry, dark chocolate, and "Mackenzie Creamery Goat Cheese with Roasted Red Cherries."

All were amazingly creamy, sweet, and very unique in flavor. The sweet corn was surprisingly sweet and creamy, and there was the barely detectable hint of its origin as an ear of corn.

Jeni's has other interesting ice cream combinations like Queen City Cayenne, Bangkok Peanut, and Wildberry Lavender. Their current seasonals also include Backyard Mint and Brown Butter Almond Brittle. Some Backyard Mint sounds amazing after a grilling dinner outdoors in our last few nights of summer.

These aren't exactly cheap though, being shipped in from Ohio. Jeni's sells at 4 pints for $48, or 6 for $68.

  1. Jeni's is from my hometown of Columbus! It is so fantastic. The lavender is fantastic, and their most famous is the salted caramel (yum).
