Most of the time I’ll just get a trio on my way out when I’m doing my weekly market shopping, but occasionally I’ll pick up a pint (or two or three) of my favorite flavors so I can savor them at home – every woman knows that there’s some things in life that are just made more bearable by ice cream.
And Jeni’s, by far, is the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Ultra premium, so high fat (ETA: I stand corrected. It’s not high in fat – which is surprising to me – but it *tastes* like it is, which is a good thing in my book!)that it makes Haagen Daaz look like marshmallow fluff in comparison. Fortunately for my waistline, a little goes a long way and three little scoops are enough to satisfy. And her unique flavors (shown above is Dark Cocoa Gelato, Maker’s Mark Butter Pecan and Port-Soaked Cherry Goat Cheese ice cream) keep me coming back to try her new offerings every time. My current favorite is the Salty Caramel, which she describes as “a traditional French-style caramel, with caramelized sugars, butter and sea salt”. My all-time favorite was the Torrone, which although gone now, is sadly not forgotten.
If you’re not in the Columbus area, she does also ship. Well worth every penny. And if you’re looking for a sundae rather than pints or a cone, she also has a storefront on Grandview Ave as well. Either way, we have some warm days coming up, and you’ll want to put a trip to Jeni’s on your “to-do” list. I know it’s on mine!
If you want to go: Jeni’s Ice Cream, 59 Spruce St (North Market) 614.228.9960, or 1281 Grandview Ave (Grandview) 614.488.2680.
