If you don't know about Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, the popular "cow to cone" artisan ice cream from Jeni Britton Bauer, or just wondered when the heck the Columbus-based company was going to make their way into Arizona so you could stop ordering online already, read on, you're going to like this.
Since mid-October, Jeni's has been available at The Farm at South Mountain and select AJ's Fine Food locations. Known for her use of fresh ingredients, simple packaging, and unique flavors like whiskey and pecans, goat cheese with cognac figs, and brambleberry crisp, Jeni's pints are pricey (about $12), but pay off in crazy-good, creamy, one-of-a-kind flavors.
