Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.

Columbus, OH-based Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is well known for its creative flavor combinations and quality ingredients used in all of their ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts. All flavors are inspired by local dairy and fruit. It’s also interesting that Jeni’s uses NO eggs because she believes they distract from the flavor of the cream. Instead she uses small amounts of corn starch and gelatin as thickeners.

There’s nothing better than a quality product in equally outstanding packaging. Jeni’s is spot-on, relying on clear plastic containers and a handwritten font that really allows the ice cream to be the star. At the same time it also reminds you that all of Jeni’s frozen treats are handmade in small batches.

Founder Jeni Britton is featured in this month’s Food & Wine magazine in How to Make Ice Cream Like an Artisan. I’m pumped that the article contains lots and lots of her recipes as well.

    Oh my GOSH, Kelly! Those look amazing! I am running out to grab Food & Wine for the recipes so I can break in the Ice Cream Machine we got for our wedding (that has been in the box for a year!)

    I live in cleveland, oh and used to work for a columbus based company. I would invariably stop for a cone on my way back home and was known on occasion to bring back a pint or 6. The Queen City cayenne of dark chocolate with cayenne was a fav. Missing that job just for this perk alone.

    I love all frozen treats, but Jeni’s tops my list. I have made plenty of excuses to drive the 20 minutes it takes to get to their cute little store in Grandview.

    These all look yummy. I saw this issue in the bookstore, but now I’m going to definitely buy it.

    LOVE Jeni’s! I’ve been looking around for plastic containers like this to pack my homemade ice cream from Jeni’s book but am not having any luck. Any thoughts?
