Our Tropical Tree Ice Creams

In keeping with our Winter Woods mood, it’s time to take a closer look at three new arrivals to our menu: Chocomole, Roxbury Road, and Banana French Toast. Unlike the Winter Woods Collection’s Oregon Fir, Black Walnut Divinity, Birch + Marshmallows, or Cedarwood Vanilla, these new arrivals’ names may not broadcast “We come from trees”…

From the Department of Handwritten Labels

OK. What we’re going to say now is going to sound like something from All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, but it’s true: What’s inside is what matters most. Ever since Jeni made every ice cream and pinted every ice cream herself behind the dipping cabinet in the North Market, “What’s inside…

A Life-Changing Question Amidst the Menu

Whether you’re in seventh grade or in your seventh decade, there’s no better place for a first date than an ice cream shop.

The Winter Woods Collection

The Winter Woods Collection: Birch + Marshmallows, the Smoked Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich, Cedarwood Vanilla, Oregon Fir, and Black Walnut Divinity, and in the foreground, the Smoked Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Story Behind the Holiday in the Alps Collection

As a toddler, I lived with my family on an army base in Stuttgart, Germany, before later settling in Illinois. Like so many families of my generation, my family was uprooted when my dad was drafted during the Vietnam War. As it turns out, my husband Charly’s family also lived in Germany—on a different base—during the war….

Our Photographer in the Spotlight

Whenever I write something about ice cream, people are quick to tell me how great my photos and videos are.  And I’m always quick to say, “Aw, thanks a lot. You’re too kind.” Then, after I bask in the glory for a few days, guilt sinks in and I cough up the truth: Kelsey McClellan, Jeni’s…
