did i mention that my weekend in columbus was a dessert-y weekend? one of our stops was jenis ice cream. mention jenis to anyone in columbus, ohio and they will nod their heads in acknowledgment. recently i even found their ice cream at the whole foods market here in cincinnati!
so what makes them one of the best? first of all they use whole cream from snowville creamery, pasteurized and delivered within 48 hrs. can you get any fresher than that?? second, the fun flavor combinations they come up with: bangkok peanut, pistachio & honey, gravel road … who wouldn’t want to try it all?
they’re also very generous in allowing their customers to try as many flavors, even offering suggestions for a flavor match if you wanted to order more than one. it was a saturday night when we were there, and the line was out the door, but i still managed to try 4 different flavors (not anywhere near half of what they offered!). i finally settled on rhubarb rose and dark chocolate. mmm
aside from their ice creams, sorbets and yogurt by the scoop, they also sell ice cream sandwiches using cookies from where else? pistacia vera!
