Jeni’s Ice Cream from my home state of Ohio has arrived in Atlanta and began scooping to the public today. I’d actually already moved on from the Buckeye State by the time the empire began and first learned of Jeni’s right next door to the new Westside shop at Star Provisions.


Jeni, pictured above, has seen her empire grow into multiple Ohio shops, and has recently set up shop in Chicago. Pints can be found from coast to coast however she’s still hands on in the operation.

The scoopers are great with pairing suggestions, I tried the above combo, the limited edition Cloverton, made with cheese from a Southern Ohio farm with an Everything Bagel topping (“Gravel” in Jeni’s parlance) – trust me, it works

Other favorites I enjoyed included Sweet Potato with torched marshmallows, sweet corn with raspberries, dark chocolate (!!), Riesling poached pear sorbet & brambleberry crisp. I did enjoy their salty caramel, but I’d have to say that nothing compares to Morelli’s in that regard. 🙂

I’m looking forward to trying their other flavors, including their whiskey eggnog that comes online in November. The Everything Bagel gravel and sweet corn & raspberries flavor are only available in October – so if you want it, you’ll have to go now. The store is open from 11-11.
