Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream

Based on the number of pints we find ourselves consuming on a weekly basis, you’d think we were 109 Cheese, Wine & Ice Cream. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream from Ohio is one of our very favorite products, especially now that summer is here.

One of the reasons why we covet it may be their tempting flavors and pairings of sweet and savory, including: Salted Caramel, Lemon Blueberry Yogurt, Bourbon Butter Pecan, Backyard Mint
, Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Buttermilk, to name just a few we carry

Don’t just take our word for it, stop by and try a pint. Just be sure to leave me a Salted Caramel.
