Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream (Columbus, Ohio)
James Beard-award-winner Jeni Britton Bauer founded Jeni's in 2002 to make pure ice cream with dairy from grass-grazed cows raised by small Ohio farmers and whole local or Fair Trade ingredients. Signature flavors anchor the menu, which also includes limited-edition flavors inspired by the seasons, pop culture, culinary history, and world trends. Prepare to be transported by ice cream flavors like The Buckeye State (salted peanut butter and dark chocolate), Goat Cheese with Cherries, Whiskey & Pecans, and Wildberry Lavender. But leave room for Lime Cardamom frozen yogurt.
