Get Free Scoops on Your Birthday at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream
St. Louis, MO/July 13, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – If you’re a fan of cool, creamy treats, then you might already be familiar with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, located at 389 N. Euclid Avenue in the Central West End. If you have yet to indulge your sweet tooth by trying a scoop off of Jeni’s gourmet ice cream menu, fear not! Summer is the perfect time to savor a sweet, frozen treat, especially since the hottest days of the year are upon us. A one-of-a-kind scoop of Jeni’s gourmet ice cream might just be the perfect way for you to cool down during these hot, hot times.
One of the things that sets Jeni’s apart from other ice cream shops is their artisan approach to crafting delicious, natural ice creams. Jeni Britton Bauer founded Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002 using what she calls “the fellowship model.” Her philosophy is simple: better ice cream comes from building relationships with growers, suppliers, makers, and customers. It’s a process that she admits takes longer, but the results speak for themselves. Everything at Jeni’s is made using whole ingredients and dairy from grass-pastured cows. They don’t use any synthetic flavorings, dyes, or off-the-shelf mixes. You won’t find the long lists of stabilizers and emulsifiers often found in other ice creams. At Jeni’s they rely on their artisan processing techniques to achieve creamy, flavorful results without the additives. Another secret to Jeni’s appeal is their dedication to outstanding service.
As a seasoned patron of Jeni’s, I’ve just got to say that I am always amazed and surprised by the creative flavor combinations available on the menu, and my taste buds have yet to be disappointed. A few flavors I would recommend to newcomers are: Wildberry Lavender, Lemon & Blueberries Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt, Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Brambleberry Crisp, Gooey Butter Cake, and Churro. Those are my personal favorites, but if you’re new to the gourmet ice cream scene and you want something a little more basic, Jeni’s also offers their version of popular ice cream classics such as: Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk, Cookies in Cream, Ndali Estate Vanilla Bean, and Darkest Chocolate. Jeni’s is a versatile ice cream shop in that they have something for pretty much everyone—gourmet foodies and average ice cream eating joes alike leave as satisfied customers.
The new summer flavor at Jeni’s is Watermelon Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt, which sounds absolutely delicious to me (an avid fan of watermelon!), but this fresh option is not the only new thing happening at Jeni’s this summer. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has begun offering free ice cream on customers’ birthdays. Talk about a delicious birthday gift! Customers who visit Jeni’s on their birthday will be able to order any flavors of their choice in a single, standard, or trio size ice cream cup or cone—completely free of charge! Adults will need a valid ID and kids will need an adult to verify it’s their birthday, but that’s not much to ask for up to three scoops of this creamy, dreamy artisan ice cream. If you have a summer birthday coming up, (first of all, happy birthday!) you should really consider capitalizing on this free ice cream deal at Jeni’s. In this heat, who wouldn’t take some free ice cream on their birthday?
Birthday or not, if you like ice cream, then you have got to give Jeni’s gourmet ice cream a try. If you can’t get to the CWE scoop shop, fear not! Jeni’s is also available at several grocery stores around St. Louis, including Dierbergs, Straub’s, Fresh Thyme, Whole Foods Markets, Lucky’s Market, and The Smokehouse Market. Don’t feel like going out? No problem! You can order a pint of frozen bliss on their website now. It’s always the perfect time to enjoy ice cream, especially when it’s as creamy and delicious as Jeni’s ice cream.
