Jeni's Ice Cream [Moved from Midwest]

I'm thinking about placing a long distance order for some Jeni's ice cream (which I've never had before but sounds delicious). I was hoping to get some input on favorite flavors.

Min. orer is 6 pts -- here's what's on my list right now:

Salty Caramel
Cucumber Granita
Bartlett Pear and Riesling Sorbet
Sweet Corn with Blackberry
Backyard Mint
Butterscotch with Cocoa Nibs

  1. Sounds good, but where is Jeni's Ice Cream in the Midwest?

      Jeni's - - is based in Columbus, Ohio, but given how wide an area this board covers, it sure would help if folks would include the location in the title of their topics.

        Was just looking at my current issue of Dean and Deluca catalog and they are selling Jeni's Ice Creams as well, fyi. They sound divine. :)

          Yeah, I thought about that after I posted, sorry. My "home" board covers a much smaller area!

      2. I ordered Jeni's Ice Cream after learning about it here on CH. The truth is, this is the BEST ice cream I have ever had. The quality is outstanding and the flavors are too!

        I ordered a selection inspired by the Marie Antoinette film that was out last year... the only one from that group still available, Creme de Violet, was one of my favorites. the next time I'm anywhere near Ohio, I plan to go to Jeni's and try the Thai Chili and the Salty Caramel... and probably everything else...

        The bottom line is, Jeni's ice cream is so good, it almost dosen't matter which flavors you pick.

        1. Sweet corn with blackberry is my favorite. I will go and get it three days in a row and buy a pint, it's soooo good.

          1. Thai Chili is amazing. It tastes like a cool bite of sweet creamy coconut and peanut, but as it melts in your mouth, you feel just a twinge of heat from the chili. An incredibly unique ice cream experience.

            1. Jeni's ice cream is terrific! Living in Columbus, we have several very good ice cream options (Graeter's, Johnson's, Denise's, also), but theirs is yum yum good. The Salty Caramel is my personal fav, wish they would put pecans or some kind of nut in it. A couple of weeks ago DH had lemon blueberry yogurt from Jeni's, which was also swell.

                Sorry this is a bit delayed... one of Jeni's permanent flavors is Gravel Road, which is the Salty Caramel mixed with chopped up smoked almonds. It's WONDERFUL, and I almost always have a pint in my freezer.
