COLUMBUS, Ohio— Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is shaking up the dairy-free game forever with the launch of its first dairy-free product line nationwide today. As with all of Jeni’s imaginative flavors, its take on a dairy-free frozen dessert is so satisfyingly delicious, even steadfast dairy lovers will love them. The collection is available now in Jeni’s Scoop Shops nationwide and online.
What Makes Jeni’s Dairy-Free Different?
A few years ago, Jeni’s set out to make the best dairy-free ice cream in the world. They tried all the trendy ingredients (pea proteins, algae, nut milks). Not one lived up to their standards of flavor and quality. Taking a step back, Jeni’s realized their premise was all wrong because it’s impossible to ask ingredients that are not milk or cream to act like milk or cream.
They returned to the roots of what it is they do every single day: source the best ingredients they can find and use their expertise to make them shine. Which is how Jeni’s came to use pure coconut cream—the most delicate and delicious part of the coconut and the reason Jeni’s new flavors are so impossibly creamy. And it means these flavors are as enjoyable licked from a cone as they are from a spoon.
Said Jeni Britton Bauer: “This is dairy-free ice cream that’s not jealous of dairy, made by people who love dairy. Bringing people together is the core of what Jeni’s is all about — building and inspiring our community. And we’re excited to be able to offer the pleasure of ice cream to our dairy-free, vegan and dairy-loving friends.”
So Spectacular They Never Needed Dairy
Jeni’s launches its collection with four cravable flavors, Dark Chocolate Truffle, Cold Brew with Coconut Cream, Texas Sheet Cake and Roasted Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jam. From the complex and ethereal flavors of Dark Chocolate Truffle, to the light and bright Slingshot Coffee-infused Cold Brew with Coconut Cream, the savory Roasted Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jam with a hint of sea salt and the decadent Texas Sheet Cake with chocolate cake crumbles, bittersweet fudge and palate-gripping cocoa, Jeni’s dairy-free collection offers something for everyone.
