We don’t make tooting our own horn common practice, but we’ll make an exception for the trophy you see in that photo.

Last night in New York City, The Speciality Food Association awarded us our second-ever sofi™ Gold Award.

A sofi™, which stands for Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation, is an Oscar in the world of food. A sofi™ Gold Award is sweet all the way around, but especially so when it’s granted for the prestigious Outstanding Product Line category, which we won last night.

Jeni’s—whose Lemon Frozen Yogurt won a 2012 sofi™ Gold Award (Outstanding Dessert or Dessert Topping)—this year was one of 125 Finalists selected by a national panel of specialty food professionals from 2,573 entries across 32 Awards categories.

Way to go, Team Jeni’s, and thanks to all of you dear customers for helping us set ourselves apart in the world of specialty food.

And, let’s hear it for two of our retail partners in California, Lazy Acres and Oliver’s Markets, who each won Outstanding Retailer Awards last night. Congratulations to you both!
