With shop openings these past few months in Atlanta, Nashville, and Chicago, we’ve met a lot of great people who’ve come out to check out the new digs for the first time and sample the ice cream. But in Chicago, we met a super fan named Eric Duncan. See him shaking Jeni’s hand? Eric, a…

13-Year-Old Ice Cream Maker Lucy Enge

You meet Jeni’s fans in the strangest ways and places these days. Take Lucy Enge, for example. Lucy, who recently turned 13, lives in Signal Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tenn., population 7,429. During a recent visit to Chattanooga to attend a friend’s wedding, my wife and I were spending some down time checking out the views…

Middle West Whiskey Eggnog

Our eggnog ice cream is back, with a new flavor profile and a new name: Middle West Whiskey Eggnog.

Long-time Jeni’s fans will recognize these flavors…

Cinderella Pumpkin: the Belle of the Late Harvest Ball

Cinderella Pumpkin, the belle of the Late Harvest Collection, takes its inspiration from—you guessed it: a little story called Cinderella. In Cinderella, from Charles Perrault’s The Tales of Mother Goose, the forlorn title character’s fairy godmother asks her to “run into the garden, and bring me a pumpkin.” With wand in hand, Cinderella’s godmother gets to work, transforming the finest…

Acres of Flavor: Late Harvest Collection

Our new Late Harvest Collection features four ice creams that pack acres and acres of flavor in lick after lick.
