[Update: Attended the opening and loved the flavors. Impressed with Jeni’s sense of caring for the environment – check out the metal-instead-of-plastic, reusable-instead-of-throwaway tasting spoons!]
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams’ brand new Old Town scoop shop is officially open—and they’re throwing a party to celebrate. To fully christen the fourth Chicago shop, founder Jeni Britton Bauer will be in town on Thursday, August 3rd and from 7 to 11 pm they’ll be giving away free scoops to all and swag bags to the first 50 folks who show up at 1419 N. Wells St.
Dig these totally unique flavors: Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso, Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt (mango, blueberry and lemon), Ndali Estate Vanilla Bean, Milkiest Chocolate, Darkest Chocolate, Salty Caramet, Pistachio and Honey, and so on. OMG. Makes your mouth water just to read the names…
Put this on your calendar for heavens sake. Or visit one of the other three locations in Chicago or get it at Mariano’s, Whole Foods, and many other retail outlets.
