Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream

By Alix Simnock,

Forget what you’ve heard about frozen yogurt. Be honest. You really prefer ice cream, right?

So, imagine my delight when this weekend I stumbled upon the best ice cream I have ever tasted in my life: Jen’s Splendid Ice Creams. “Splendid” doesn’t even begin to describe them. And my favorite flavor? Brown Butter Almond Brittle.

Imagine the richness of brown sugar caramelized and mixed with butter. (So don’t tell your cardiologist.) As Paula Dean constantly reminds you on the Food Network, everything goes better with butter.

Also blended inside are almonds. However Jen’s manages to mix it up, the result is a silky richness that goes down oh-so-smoothly.

Speaking of richness, Jen’s flavors go for $12 a pint.

While free samples are offered at parlor locations in Ohio and Tennessee, pints are available by ordering online. Go to
