What’s Your Favorite Flavor at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams?
There’s ice cream, and then there’s Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. This popular chain has a new location in Old Town Alexandria, and its dreamy confections make even the East Coast winter a little more bearable. Expect unique flavors like gooey butter cake, wildberry lavender, and brambleberry crisp. There are also boozy options like eggnog or cognac with gingerbread. Even dairy-free eaters can savor a scoop of Frose sorbet. Go for a trio to sample (three half scoops), or opt for a waffle cone or bowl (and expect a cone so good that it’s worth eating on its own).
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams marries an exceptional ice cream base with high end mix-ins and inventive flavors, so expect a somewhat hefty price tag. Find Splendid Ice Creams on South Patrick Street, right at the intersection at King.
