New song from Doc Robinson & album release party Saturday night at Skully’s

“Drive Slow,” the new song from Columbus duo Doc Robinson, and your favorite jam for the rest of the summer. We’re totally obsessed with this band right now—and we’re not the only ones. Their first single from a year ago, “It’s Over,” had pretty much everything you could ask for—triumphant horns, boom-bap drums with a handclap…

Recipe: the world’s best coriander ice cream

Coriander essential oil is pressed from the seeds of the cilantro plant, whose flavor bears no resemblance to the scent of the leaves. The oil is sweet and spicy, with notes of vanilla. Corander is as versatile as vanilla, and its warm flavor reminds Jeni of cheesecake, which is why it is so delightful with…

People we love: Right Bee Cider

Charlie Davis and Katie Morgan, the owners of Right Bee Cider in Chicago, have gotten used to hearing the same reaction from first time customers: “I’m not usually a cider person, but I like this.” It gets Katie every time. Because she knows there’s a stigma attached to American ciders—that they must be cloyingly sweet—and…

Freestylin’: Lemon & Blueberries BFY terrine

An ice cream terrine is a great dessert for a party since you can serve a lot of people in a short amount of time. Slice, plate, drizzle with sauce, and add a garnish of berries, nuts or mint—whatever. You can even slice the terrine in advance. Keep the slices in the freezer until dessert…

All the fruits sundae board

At Jeni’s HQ, our favorite no-fail, always impressive dessert (with almost no fuss) is the sundae board. Think of it like a cheese board that swaps the brie and gouda for ice cream and buttermilk frozen yogurt. Subs cookies for crackers. Keeps the nuts and jam. And maybe we throw in some hot fudge or…

3 things to know about Cream Puff ice cream

Our Cream Puff ice cream is the runaway hit of the summer. We absolutely love this flavor and know that you will, too. Because it tastes exactly like a classic Old World cream puff—addicting, bright, and candy-like vanilla in a salty custard with loads of pastry flakes. It’s just colder, rounder, and easier to eat…

Jeni’s Mom’s Day gift pick: Paper & Clay

Lately, we are simply swooning over the beautiful ceramic dishes from Paper & Clay. We love their simple aesthetic and warm colors. But they’re more than just pretty pieces of pottery—they are also functional and durable. Case in point: they are the dishes we reach for right now when we want to serve or photograph…

Cook from the Book: Candy is Magic

Around here we have a soft spot for caramel. Real, full-flavored, complex caramel made with fire-toasted sugar pulled off the heat a split second before it turns burnt and bitter (the way we make our Salty Caramel). Candy wizard Jami Curl, owner of Portland’s candy mecca QUIN, is a girl after our own hearts. She…

People we love: QUIN candy wizard Jami Curl

Jami Curl’s candies are like bite-size time machines. One lick of a strawberry lollipop or taste of a cherry cola gumdrop will take you back to childhood and the days of walking the candy aisle with wonder. Only this time around, these candies and caramels—made with nothing fake inside—live up to your memories. Actually, they…

Hey Mother Earth. We got you.

As a proud certified B Corp, we’ve made a commitment to do everything we can as a company to reduce our impact on the environment and within our communities. With Earth Day on the horizon, we figured now is as good of a time as any to give a shout-out to some of the ways…

Jeni’s Record Store Day afterparty

For nearly a decade, Record Store Day has been a celebration of the unique culture surrounding indie record stores. An epic day when customers line up, sometimes hundreds deep, before 8 a.m. openings vying to get their hands on special vinyl and CD releases (like this year’s Big Star Complete Third: Vol 3: Final Masters…

German Village shop open for the season

A sure sign of spring: our 91-square-foot “Mini Jeni’s” in German Village—the one with the dandy walk-up/bike-up window at 900 Mohawk St.—re-opens for the season on Saturday, April 1. (No joke!) Our ambassadors will be scooping from noon to 10 p.m. daily. Here’s the opening weekend menu: Ndali Estate Vanilla Supermoon Darkest Chocolate Salted Peanut…

Our Short North shop is getting a new look

It’s hard to believe we’re celebrating 10 years in the Short North this summer. In July 2007, we opened our third scoop shop inside a former art gallery at the corner of North High and East Lincoln streets. We didn’t alter the space much then—from the original hardwood floors to the stark track lighting—but that’s…
