Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream has arrived in Historic Dublin. Jeni's Dublin Mary and I visited the new establishment recently (since we’re conveniently located  upstairs). Mary sampled … Savannah Butternut (smooth and laid-back like Savannah!); Salty Caramel (a Jeni’s signature favorite … rich, creamy combo of sweet & salty); Earl Grey (aromatic and subtle); … but ended up getting Reisling Soaked Poached Pear.  (She noted that her next sample will be the Grapefruit Hibiscus Yogurt!)

I sampled three flavors … Bourbon Buttered Pecan (combination of bourbon taste and sea-salted pecans), Pistachio with Honey and Kona Stout–made in honor of the Dublin store opening (rich and dark Barley’s Russian Imperial Stout and Stauff’s Kona coffee steeped in cream). I preferred the Bourbon Buttered Pecan … and am anxious to try Salty Caramel next time.

Jeni’s offers ice cream, gelato and yogurt, with all products made from local-grass fed dairy. The Dublin shop offers about 30 flavors in addition to sundaes, pints-to-go and ice cream sandwiches made with Parisian macaroons. Jeni’s is located at 1 West Bridge Street and summer hours are 11 a.m.-11 p.m. 614/792-5634. www.jenisicecreams.com
