My first taste of Jenni's was on a cold, snowy night along Short North. Although the weather outside was freezing, the ice cream was wonderful! I was delighted to find a Jenni's Ice Cream stand at the North Market on our recent visit to Columbus. After several complimentary samples, I finally settled two flavors. One of the best ice creams... More

Yes, Jeni's has chocolate and vanilla, but why stop there. My favorite flavor is Cherry Goat Cheese. Jeni is known for unique seasonal flavors. She works with local farms and dairies for the freshest ingredients. There are ice creams with beer, champagne, cayenne pepper, sweet corn and biscuits and so much more. Your trip to central Ohio isn't complete without... More

Not only are the flavor spot on, the combinations are endless. From salty caramel to more traditional like buckeye or chocolate cayenne it's an experience you don't want to miss

Its a big deal here in Ohio, but I am a traditionalist and do not like the concept of combining "pickles and ice cream." I was finally talked into going with a friend and tried several samples. All of which tasted like salt to me. This idea of putting sea salt into products is probably the most ridiculous thing I... More

Jeni's makes ice cream that is worthy of driving many miles out of your way to experience. The flavors alone are equal to the most amazing experiences you could have in Paris or any other city known for the creme de la creme of superb delights! Besides the taste, her ingredients are the best and she's a wonderful person if... More

Had their signature flavor-- salty caramel. It tasted like salt. And not much else. Mouth feel was nothing special. Considering the price, there is no need to give them a second chance. There are plenty of lower cost ice creams out there that taste much better.

Jeni's ice cream is worth standing in line for. You must try Jeni's at least once if you are in Columbus.

Always a treat to try a new Jeni's flavor and always great service. Salted Carmel and believe or not a bourbon flavored ice cream. Wonderful.
