Cow to Cone

I have the scoop on a cool and timely find; the product has an original story with quality and sustainability at the core of each hand filled pint. Good stuff. I am not talking about a microbrew. I am referring to Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, the Ohio based artisan ice creamery.

Jeni's is a family owned and operated company with outside-the-box signature & seasonal flavors with a strong emphasis on the freshest ingredients. All the cream in every one of Jeni's ice cream pints is produced from the free grazing cows of Snowville Creamery, also in Ohio.

Ohio Love You is everything we are—our inspirations ... our ingredients ... our relationships with devoted customers, talented farmers and a supportive community. It is a celebration of everything that makes Jeni's ice creams truly splendid!

And of course, all of our ice creams are made with Ohio dairy from pasture raised cows. No antibiotics, growth hormones, herbicides or pesticides necessary ... cows eat grass, which their bodies were built to eat....When a local farmer brings bags of fresh mint, our team washes and chops it before steeping it in cream.

Here's the making of Backyard Mint: Note, the mint is from local Ohio farm, fresh picked.

Seasonal Flavors:

Brown Butter Almond Brittle
Based on the traditional Norwegian dessert krokan. Browned butter gives depth to salty, sweet almond brittle.

Backyard Mint
Pure, intense peppermint restrained and mellowed with sweet cream. Like a cool breeze on a hot day.

The Buckeye State
Our version of Ohio's favorite confection. Rich and salty peanut butter yields to the crunch of exceptional dark chocolate for perfect balance. Total comfort for Buckeyes and Buckeyes at heart.

Strawberry Buttermilk
Fragrant Ohio strawberries with rich buttermilk impart a light, clean finish. Like a bowl of strawberries and cream.

Sweet Corn & Black Raspberries
Buttery, milky sweet corn gives way flawlessly to sweet-tart black raspberry jam. Breath of honey on the finish.
