Sweet Indeed: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Some days are, well, just days. 

But then other days, a 14-pound box of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams lands on your doorstep, carefully packed in dry ice.

That, my friends, is a magical kind of day. And it was my day recently, when I was sent such a parcel from the purveyors of prime-time ice cream themselves--you know, so I could try some of their spring flavors.

I could tell you how good this ice cream is. I could tell you how creamy, how rich, how luxuriant it feels in your mouth. I could tell you how it's worth whatever ridiculous price it might cost in the store ($12 per pint in some areas, I hear!), just so that you can taste a sweet piece of this nirvana.

But, you know, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll sum it up simply by saying this is how Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams taste:

It gave you a pretty good idea, right? So, how about we now illustratively discuss each of the various flavors in the parcel: Banana Cajeta, Savannah Buttermint, "Roxbury" Road, and Double Toasted Coconut.

First, just so you know what banana cajeta is:

And here's how it tastes:

And next, Savannah Buttermint:

and now, the Roxbury Road, which is like a tricked-out Rocky Road: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

and finally, the Double Toasted Coconut, which is like a pure shot of coconut to the heart: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Final thoughts? Yeah, something like this:

I am so jealous I have never been to Jeni's and I live in England so I doubt it would make it by post... Not only would it probably melt, but I'd wager it wouldn't make it through customs. Dang it! I did buy the book.... but still waiting for an ice cream maker!! :0)

These new flavors look amazing!!

Lisa: you'd better head to the states to try it. It's worth the trip! :-)
