Jeni’s Ice Cream
I’m just going to admit it now. J and I have an ice cream addiction. A serious ice cream addiction. One that I don’t think can ever be broken, and I’m not sure I want it to be, to be honest. Whoever created ice cream is a genius.
I’m a sweets person through and through. I will never pick chips and dip over cookies, cake, or ice cream. So, anytime we go out of town we try to seek out the local ice cream places (seriously, sometimes I think we travel just for the ice cream!!).
So way back in June when I registered for the Columbus race I knew we HAD to seek out Jeni’s. I have heard so many good things about this place from my Columbus blogger friends, and it’s also been on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate.
On our walk to dinner after the expo on Saturday we walked right past Jeni’s. Score! It’s really pretty ridiculous how excited we get about ice cream. I think all three of us were thinking about it during dinner.
You know it’s going to be good when there’s a line out the door.
We were a bit overwhelmed when we saw all the flavors.
So the first thing I asked was “Can we sample?” And when the guy working the counter replied, “Yes, as much as you want!”, I knew we were in the right place.
First thing on the list: Heirloom Pumpkin 5-Spice!
It was good, but a little too “pumpkin-y” for me (weird, considering I love pumpkin)?
I ended up with two signature flavors:
Both of these were phenomenal. I couldn’t have asked for me. The ice cream was so creamy and rich!
J got the Queen City Cayenne flavor that was featured on Food Network. The guy working the counter told us this was the very first flavor Jeni ever created. J LOVED it. The heat kinda hits your tongue after you swallow – it tasted almost like those little red hot candies, but in ice cream form!
The 3 of us all got different flavors, but all our cones looked the same!
Ever wonder what an 8 year old looks like after eating dark chocolate ice cream?
Hmmmm………I think he liked it.
Do you have a favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt joint? Please share!!! That may have to be our next vacation destination….
