Change, Listeria, and the re-opening of our kitchen

Since we opened 13 years ago, we’ve had three different production kitchens, four different logos, two different company names, six different kinds of ice cream machines, two different domain names, and I’ve had at least four pairs of Warby Parkers. But here is something that hasn’t changed since day one: what we do and why…

Salty Caramel is back

This Salty Caramel is parfait. It is an utterly perfect batch. True caramel is nutty, buttery, with aromatic notes of butterscotch, maple, and coffee. The only way I know how to describe the flavor is emotional. It’s like getting hit with a love arrow. You know it when it’s right. It’s a pot of sugar…

3 Recipes for Buckeye Candies

Recently, we changed the name of The Buckeye State to Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks to better reflect the ingredients. What will never change is the ice cream’s original inspiration: Buckeye candies, those rich, chocolate-covered peanut butter balls that take their look and name from actual Buckeyes, the (inedible) nuts of Ohio’s official tree, the Ohio…

Holiday Hours

Any long holiday weekend calls for backyard BBQs, community fireworks shows, and, yes, ice cream. Our scoop shops will be open normal hours all weekend, with a couple exceptions: Jeni’s at the Commons will have extended hours on July 4 (noon to 10 pm, for Picnic with the Pops) and Jeni’s North Market will be…

And we’re back!

I’m happy to announce we’re reopening our shops this weekend—in time to celebrate the Columbus Pride Festival, one of our favorite events of the year. Our shops will open at 5 pm on Saturday across the country. The menu will be limited at first, featuring a mix of our ice creams, frozen yogurts, and sorbet—all…

An update from our CEO John Lowe

We have found Listeria in our production facility again. We discovered the Listeria through routine swabbing as part of our monitoring program. We stopped production earlier this week and have been investigating where and how it may have re-entered the facility. We have a theory and are testing that theory. We don’t yet have a…

What’s new on the menu: floats, sundaes, and house coffee

FLOATS Pair Boylan Bottling Company’s crisp cane sugar sodas with any ice cream, yogurt, or sorbet on our menu to make a float. From the tried-and-so-true (Root Beer) to try-it-and-see-for-yourself-how-great-a-float-really-can-be, the possibilities are endless. Some of our favorite combinations are below. A Classic Root Beer Float (Ndali Estate Vanilla Bean Ice Cream + Root Beer)   Root…

L.A. Plants For Pints: March 13-15

We’ve got a lot going on these days in Los Angeles. Our Los Feliz shop—our first-ever West Coast spot—will open soon. Stay tuned! But up first this weekend, we’ll be partnering with six Los Angeles-area Whole Foods Market stores to raise a little money for the Whole Planet Foundation and to have a little fun…

Valentine’s Weekend in Bangkok

We’re not sure what it is about our scoop shops, but they’ve always been beacons of love. They’ve hosted so many engagement photos and proposals. One even hosted a full-on wedding. And who knows how many first dates have been shared over scoops of Salty Caramel? During Valentine’s weekend we hope to continue the tradition…
