Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Cool ice cream related nicknames.

Serious suggestions only, please.

Ice cream is my happy food. Some people say chocolate, I say Talenti Caramel Apple Pie gelato (only when it's buy one get one free at Publix, of course).

One night while studying I decided to take a trip to Avalon and explore. To be honest, I didn't do much exploring. More so I made a bee-line for Jeni's.

The line was out of the door and I can understand why. The smell of freshly baked waffle cones was intoxicating. I was mesmerized by the cone making process; so simple but so cool!

The line was moving quickly which was nice. Given the environment, it was surprisingly quiet. The most exciting thing that happened : a couple newly married walked by to take some photos in front of a cute wall.

What I ordered: (1st trip) went with a trio/flight.
  • Goat Cheese with Red cherries (I was actually scared to try this. The goat cheese sounded crazy to me but I decided to try it anyway. Overall it was really good but some of the cherries were waaaay too tart.)
  • Wildberry lavender (this was my wildcard flavor. I was pleasantly surprised! All the flavors came together nicely for this rich + creamy flavor)
  • Frosé ( a sangria style rosé, and you know I love my rosé!)

On my second trip (a few weeks later) I learned that they cycle through flavors, forcing me to not be boring and try new things.

What I ordered: (2nd trip) I went with 2 scoops on a cone.
  • Brambleberry crisp (think blueberry pie + cobbler)
  • Lemon and blueberries buttermilk frozen yogurt (the lemon flavor was very over powering and this is coming from someone who loves almost all things lemon flavored.)

Normally I don't like to be "that person" and try 31658468 flavors. On my first trip I hoped for the best, however when I brought one of my best friends I decided to sample a few flavors.

Now that it's nice and toasty outside I think I'll enjoy Jeni's more, if that's even possible. I went during the awkward time we like to call Spring in Georgia.

This is a wonderful post-dinner or study break treat!

Bonus points: They sell pints of select flavors at your friendly neighborhood Publix. I woofed a pint of Frosé down in 2 days while studying for finals.
