Jeni’s Ice Cream Sandwiches – so good.
Posted by cmh gourmand on May 12, 2007
This is my favorite way to spend $4.50 – an ice cream sandwich from Jeni’s Fresh Ice Cream in Grandview.
Four ice cream flavors are featured in the sandwiches. My favorite is Pistachio. The cookie ingredients mirror and complement the ice cream flavors. It is the perfect ice cream experience inside a slightly chewy and rich cookie. This has been one of my favorite cravings of 2007 with no sign of abating. The macaroons are made fresh in Jeni’s kitchen from her own receipe (it had to be tweaked so the cookies could withstand the cold of the freezer).
Sidenote: (Jeni was featured in the recent issue of Columbus CEO).

An ice cream term I use often is sweat: my definition – letting the ice cream thaw a bit to the point where it is just starting to drip and begins to have the consistency of a milkshake. The science of ice cream supports that this is the best way to eat ice cream – if you have the patience to wait about 3-5 minutes after you get your scoop or dish.
Since Jeni’s ice cream sandwiches are frozen – you can truly have the “sweating” experience without suffering. When I pick my ice cream sandwiches up – it is typically a 15 minute drive back to Clintonville (THE Clintonverse – to some) so by the time I get to my house, the sandwich is the perfect temperature and consistency.
Enjoy! And let me know which sandwich you like the best.
The macaroons in the ice cream sandwiches are so good I thought they were from Pistachio Bakery but Charly Bauer was nice enough to let me know of the error of my ways. It is a still a good time to plug Pistachio Bakery (my favorite) (( Pistachio via Sopressata – some thoughts on Pistachio from a great new blog)).
