Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, based in Columbus, Ohio, has earned a national reputation thanks to quality and uncommon flavors, a Web site that offers mail order, an expanding distribution network and a cookbook. Now, for a week, the company’s ice cream truck heads east to patrol the streets of New York, dispensing sample scoops of its summer flavors: sweet corn and black raspberries, roasted strawberry buttermilk and salty caramel ice creams, and lemon-blueberry frozen yogurt. The trucks will mostly be parked outside retailers that sell Jeni’s ice cream.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams will offer free tastings at select locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn from Saturday to Sept. 15, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. The full schedule is at blog.jenis.com/nyc.
