Jeni's ice cream, now in Bristol Farms, Silverlake

Gelson's in Silverlake has pints of Jeni's ice cream (10.99 EACH).

I remember seeing

Brambleberry Crisp
Dark Chocolate
Brown Butter Almond Brittle
Salty Caramel
Whiskey & Pecans

I don't know if this is news to anyone else, but it was a pleasant (and indulgent) way to spend my Sunday afternoon.

  1. I don't think that there's a Bristol Farms in Silverlake. I've lived here for over ten years and have yet to see it.

      Good grief! I meant Gelson's--I've edited my op.

      1. re: cjla

        To clarify, all of both Gelson's and Bristol Farms locations now have pints.

    2. Well, if indulgent ice cream is what you are looking for, then you have at least two other options not that far away - Pazzo Gelato and Scoops. Hope you have given them a chance?

        Yes to both--yesterday found me at Bulgarini, and truly, on my weekly to-do list, is "visit Famous Frank's for peanut butter and chocolate ice cream."

        I probably won't be making Jeni's a habit, but it's still really good.

      2. GEEBUZ.

        At that price, support your local creamery.

        Also, Jeni's uses cornstarch. No thanks, I can make purer ice cream at home.

          Correction: The recipes in Jeni's cookbook (for making ice cream at home) call for corn starch. The ice creams we make in our professional kitchen *do not* contain corn starch.

            My apologies. Good to know.

            Does NOT change the fact that Jeni's has to travel 2200 mi to LA...

              But they DO contain tapioca starch, right?

              1. re: a213b


                We use tapioca starch—derived from natural sources and minimally processed—for its thickening qualities. The minimal pasteurization of our cream, which concentrates the proteins, in combination with the tapioca starch, enables us to make egg-free ice cream. Ever think about how much eggs are processed?

                What you won't find in our ice creams: Guar gum, xantham gum, carrageenan, etc.
