As of today, select Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams pints will be arriving in all 17 Heinen’s Fine Foods in Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.
The lineup: Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallows; Cocoa Zin; Goat Cheese with Cognac Fig Sauce; Riesling Poached Pear; Salty Caramel; The Buckeye State; and Brown Butter Almond Brittle.
Over the years Jeni has created uncommon flavors by reaching out statewide to farmers to help her execute whatever new idea she’s dreamed up and more and more she says she’s come to think of Ohio as “one big city, or one big sustainable community” working toward one goal: to bring delicious, real food to the people. Heinen’s, in business since 1929, has a long-standing tradition of doing just that.
Bonus: Snowville Creamery’s pristine milk and cream (from grass-fed Meigs County cows) and Mackenzie Creamery’s cheese can also be found on shelves in all Heinen’s locations. Jeni uses Mackenzie’s goat cheese in her Goat Cheese with Cognac Fig Sauce Ice Cream and Snowville’s milk and cream in all her ice creams and yogurts.
Today’s good news for longtime Northeast Ohio fans of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams arrives on the heels of Jeni’s recent announcement to open a scoop shop next year in Chagrin Falls (67 N. Main St.). Jeni’s first full-fledged scoop shop outside of Columbus will feature all the parfaits, macarons and Signature and Seasonal Flavors sold in Jeni’s seven Central Ohio shops and is slated to open in Spring.
