Jeni’s on Parenthood

Last night on Parenthood—one of the few truly great shows on network television right now (Tuesdays at 10/9c on NBC)—Lauren Graham’s character, Sarah Braverman, engaged in a time-honored tradition: eating Jeni’s straight from the pint. The episode was directed by actor and screenwriter Sam Jaeger, a Perrysburg, Ohio, native and Otterbein alumni, who plays Julia’s husband, Joel Graham,…

JENI’S AT FARM AID 2012

With Willie’s Nelson’s Whiskey River still flowing through our ears, we’re settling back into the rhythm here at Jeni’s headquarters. In our first-ever capacity as an official sponsor of Farm Aid, we traveled this past weekend from Columbus, Ohio, to Hershey, Penn., site of this year’s Farm Aid concert starring Farm Aid President Willie, Farm Aid board…

NYC Street Treats Tour Recap

Every year since we started shipping ice cream across the country in 2004, we’ve shipped more ice cream to New York City than anywhere else, by far. No doubt, we were aided by an early endorsement from Dean & DeLuca (our ice cream was the first ever to be featured in their world-renowned catalog) and…

Inside the Murray’s cheese caves

Murray’s Cheese is regarded by most to be the world’s best cheese shop. In business since 1940, it’s a New York City landmark, the oldest cheese shop in the city. Like us, they think of themselves as a dairy company first. They’ve earned a reputation for scouring the earth for the world’s best cheese and bringing it…

NYC Street Treats tour: Day #5

Brooklyn Fare in Downtown Brooklyn, at Schermerhorn & Hoyt. Don’t know the full story yet, but word on the street is the cops shut us down for a bit, but we were able to reopen in a different spot.

NYC Street Treats tour: Day #4

Started the day with a deskside at the NY Times. Then it was off to scoop at Foragers in DUMBO, where they’ve been selling Jeni’s since 2009. (via mickmgmt) The Etsy offices are right around the corner and they were out in full force. All of this is a lot of fun, obviously. Skills. (via evans_katie)…

NYC Street Treats tour: Day #3

We started the day at the Serious Eats HQ in Chinatown. They had a lovely spread for us and we had a great time shooting the sh_t. West Virginia Slaw dog. Each of the Heinz bottles below has a Serious Eats “Missionaries of the Delicious” label.  (See a close up here.) Like. Ridiculously bad photo of…

Stop #2: Grace’s Marketplace

3rd Ave & E 71st St., Manhattan. Man, did Ohio represent on this stop. Rachel (on the right) brought a friend—lined up before we were even ready to scoop, first in the queue. (via racheljaneypants) Then came the line. Two lovely ladies having their first Jeni’s experience. A Jeni’s pro with the requisite cone shot….

Stop #1: Dean & DeLuca Madison Ave

Dean & DeLuca has been great to us over the years. Jeni’s was the first ice cream ever featured in their world-renowned catalog—putting us on the map for a lot of people—and Giorgio DeLuca loved it so much he put it on the menu at his restaurant Giorgione. What better place to kick off the…
