Over in East Nashville and tucked away in Hillsboroâ€™s Hot & Cold, there is a frozen treasure everyone should try: Jeniâ€™s Splendid Ice Cream.
Ever have a dream that youâ€™re walking into a candy store with multitudes of delicious candies you never knew existed? That is kind of like walking into Jeniâ€™s except the candy is replaced with the most flavorful and best ice cream in Nashville.
A few flavors from Jeniâ€™s signature collection include Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate, Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Whiskey and Pecans, and Pistachio and Honey. Now some of the flavors may need some taste testing before committing to like Goat Cheese and Cherries or Wildberry Lavender, but where else can those flavors be found?
Jeniâ€™s has something for everyone; even the lactose intolerant can share in the fun with a pint of some of Jeniâ€™s frozen yogurts. Jeniâ€™s makes is easy to enjoy, but also makes it hard to choose.
Making the Best Ice Cream: Jeni’s Way
The founder of Jenâ€™s Splendid Ice Creams, Jeni Britton Bauer, has become a master at creating these delicious and refreshing treats with over a decade and a half of experience. She is constantly concocting and testing new and creative flavors that please taste buds unknown to humans before.
The ice cream does this because of the thought and care put in the process of its creation. Each batch of ice cream is made with the freshest local ingredients from the headquartersâ€™s location in Ohio. From these ingredients each ice cream is personally made in a kitchen with love, instead of being mass-produced in a factory. This translates into pretty steep prices, but enjoying a pint of the best ice cream in Nashville is worth it.
The next time you are craving a nice frozen treat head over to Jeniâ€™s for Nashvilleâ€™s best ice cream.
