Jeni's is a must do in Columbus, OH. I never miss an opportunity to stop in at one of their locations, have a few samples, be amazed and leave completely happy. You can't go wrong.

Jeni's really is a must visit while you are in Columbus. There are so many extremely unique flavors of ice cream. I will warn you that it is a bit pricey, but the ice cream is super delicious.

There was a line out the door when we went to Jeni's. But excellent customer service by the friendliest employees had the line moving fast. The goat cheese and cherries flavor is still my favorite, but haven't had a bad scoop yet. You can try several favors before deciding.

You can pick ANY flavor at Jeni's Ice Cream and you will be satisfied. Customer service is always great, but I would rate this five stars even if the service was horrible. This ice cream makes me SCREAM! If you are in Columbus or in any of the other cities they serve you MUST get this ice cream! Crazy flavors... More

If you're visiting or if you live here and have just never tried it, you need to go. It's so different than your normal ice cream shop. They try to use fresh, local ingredients when possible and you can taste all that effort. My favorite is goat cheese and cherries but I also like trying their seasonal flavors.

No trip to Columbus is complete without a visit to one of Jeni's stores. All the flavors are amazing, but of course don't miss Salty Caramel, if you haven't already tried it.

Here on a business trip and Jeni's was recommended to us to stop after dinner. Simply put, the Buckeye State Ice Cream and the Salted Carmel may be two of the best ice creams I have ever had. This place is spectacular.
