Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams are the handiwork of Jeni Bauer, who earned her culinary stripes in a local French bakery and fell for the pure European flavors she discovered there. That experience helped define the sophisticated, exotic flavors her business creates — like the irresistible Salty Caramel, which was inspired by the bakery’s traditional French caramels, made from slowly burnt sugars with cream and a little salt. Aficionados have been known to make pilgrimages to Jeni’s hometown just for the Salty Caramel. We’re just as smitten with Jeni’s complex and unexpected Cherry Lambic Sorbet, which perfectly melds sweet and sour, effervescent lambic beer on the mid palate. Just thinking about it gets the mouth watering.
Jeni’s uses only local, organic products, including milk from grass-fed cows. Each batch is hand-packed and shipped from Columbus, Ohio — where longtime fans like Daily Grommet reader Nancy Beja have been savoring and raving about Jeni’s ice cream for years (Nancy even wrote a letter to Jeni on our behalf. We’d been trying for months to share this story with you and Nancy helped to properly introduce us to Jeni. Thanks, Nancy!) All of Jeni’s treats are delivered deeply frozen, so they’re easy to ship (in a pack of nine flavors) just in time for a decadent holiday dinner or to your favorite food-lover for an unforgettable gift. One bite and you’ll be hooked. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
