Triple threat: Our newest spring flavors!

Our three new spring flavors are now available online and in shops. And trust us when we say: You are going to love them! These three flavors are the second wave of our spring collection, We’re Not From Here. They’re not going to be around long, so if you want to experience them, run, don’t…

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…

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…

JBB: On women harnessing our true power

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about women, about our place in the world. I’ve traveled back centuries to figure out what exactly I can say on International Women’s Day that has positive meaning, and what I can do that can have real impact. Here’s what I’ve landed on: As American women, our money, and…

In shops now: BeetleCat Coconut Pie Sundae

I met Ford Fry in Atlanta a few years ago and we hit it off immediately. He’s a great guy and a super talented chef, who understands that being an entrepreneur (he has 10 restaurants in the Atlanta area, 1 in Houston, and coming soon to Nashville) means constantly challenging yourself to be better every…

Our favorite ice creams for breakfast

Update: A scientist confirms what we already suspected—that eating ice cream for breakfast will in fact make you smarter. So come eat ice cream with us on Saturday morning. Your IQ depends on it. This Saturday, Feb 4, is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. (Yes, this is a real thing.) To celebrate, all our shops will…

This just in: Winter flavors are here!

It’s winter. We know what you want. Deeply satisfying, shocking clashes of taste and texture — especially this time of year when it’s cold and gray and we’re craving comfort foods and vibrant flavors to liven our palates. That’s why our winter collection, now online and in scoop shops, is full of flavors we love….

Jeni’s donut at the Standard hotel

Our spring collection is going to blow your mind. It’s a conceptual lineup of flavors you know you’ve had sometime, somewhere, but maybe never in this way. Ice creams like Supermoon—a two-in-one flavor that’s half vanilla marshmallow ice cream, half blue violet ice cream. Why are we teasing this now, with so many months left…

Jeni’s Armitage opening party on Dec 16

Chicago friends, we’re hosting an opening party at our new Lincoln Park scoop shop—Jeni’s Armitage—on Friday, Dec 16, at 7 pm. Our third Chicago location will be just off the Brown Line at 900 W Armitage Ave. Here you’ll find the traditional Jeni’s experience—friendly service inside a welcoming space—but with a slight twist: we’re sharing space…

Jeni’s x Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

We know how to step aside when the pastry chef approaches. We know that, in many ways, ice cream will always be the wingman to a great dessert. And that’s just fine with us. Our ice creams are free of anything fake and made to melt like buttercream into whatever treat you decide to scoop…

Meet Xocorosa: Our spicy collaboration with Stone Brewing

Earlier this year, California’s Stone Brewing issued us a challenge: Could we create an ice cream inspired by Xocoveza, their holiday mocha stout with a cult-like following? This wouldn’t be an ice cream copy, or even one that uses their beer in the recipe. It would be a punchy ice cream that could perfectly complement…

New in our online shop: $13 flat-rate shipping to the contiguous United States. Order as much or as little as you like—1 pint, 7 pints, 75 pints—and pay the same low price to ship anywhere in the lower 48. Send a gift (or treat yourself), and be on the lookout for our new orange delivery…

Road trip! Jeni’s × Sister Pie

Here is a name you need to know: Lisa Ludwinski. She’s the frenetic owner behind Detroit’s breakout bakery, Sister Pie. The bakery Bon Appetit named one of this year’s 50 best new restaurants, quipping they’d drive to Detroit just to eat here. Last week, that’s exactly what we did. The Jeni’s crew piled into a…

Jeni’s vending machines now at John Glenn Columbus International Airport

That’s right, folks, our Jeni’s ice cream vending machines are now at John Glenn Columbus International Airport and fully stocked with Street Treats—our single-serving, grab-and-go ice cream cups in flavors including Darkest Chocolate,…

Today is National Watermelon Day. To celebrate, we’ve got a refreshing, fizzy float any watermelon lover can get behind—whether or not you believe in food holidays. Just act fast. Our Watermelon Day float is available today only at our Bexley, Dublin, Powell, and Grandview scoop shops. It’s our tart-like-taffy Watermelon Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt topped with…
