Jeni’s Ice Cream is our new addiction!

June 25th, 2010

A certain customer of ours (still a mystery who it was!)
was in Columbus recently eating scoops of Jeni’s ice cream
when a conversation ensued about just where in Grand Rapids
would be the place to sell their frozen delights…


This turned into receiving samples which we ~ um ~ devoured.  We have noted a certain cross section of people that are ice cream ‘snobs’ and a bunch of us here are at least professing addicts

to the creamy bliss from many brands.
That said, this brand is heads & many tails above…


Their background?  Check out their great website for the whole picture but basically Jeni and her husband Charley own this artisan company in Columbus, OH.

Each batch is derived from “fresh ingredients found in the Ohio countryside as well as responsibly-raised exotics from around the world.”

Our current flavor lineup includes:

  • Salty Caramel
  • Bangkok Peanut (peanut, coconut and spice!)
  • Backyard Mint
  • Brown Butter Almond Brittle
  • Buckeye State (peanut butter & dark chocolate)
  • Meyer Lemon Blueberry
  • Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet
  • Mackenzie Creamery’s Goat Cheese & Roasted Red Cherries

If you’re intrigued to know more, their blog is pretty informative – telling their story of how they make their Backyard Mint and gives you a chance to see behind their scenes.


We think Jeni’s has amazing volume and richness in each pint.  There’s nothing like flavor of this sort to finish off your dessert…just last night in fact…

    I thought I had this dream that Joy’l texted me that you were selling Jeni’s and so in the early hours of the morning I double checked my phone. Sure enough it wasn’t a dream but a dream worth having. I’m so excited to try it that I’ll be there in the morning to pick up my first container…one of many. Thanks Amy.

    I am originally from the Grand Rapids area, but my husband and I moved to Columbus a few years ago for work. We found Jeni’s about a year after moving here, and we are ADDICTED!! We love it. My mom, also from Grand Rapids, loves Jeni’s, too. Now she can get it at home, as well!

    Great find… Buttermint and Dark Chocolate are my favorite.
