“The Insider's Guide” Of Where To Go And What To Do In Chicago
Based out of Columbus, Ohio, Jeni's Splendid Ice cream has franchised to multiple locations in the country. Chicago has 5 scoop shops (as they call their stores)—one in Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, Old town, and Wicker Park.
Jeni's crafts ice cream flavors are packed with taste and unique flavors. When walking into a Jeni's shop, you'll be able to try unlimited samples of their unique assortment of flavors. Flavors like "Wildberry Lavender" or "Whiskey and Pecans" may sound foreign and strange at first but every ingredient combines seamlessly together to create an unexpected new favorite flavor.
Due to the unique flavor options at Jeni's, the friendly staff will lead you through the ingredients of the ice cream to ensure that you have a well-rounded experience. Limited edition flavors change throughout the year to help correlate with the season. Flavors like "Boozy Eggnog" and "Pumpkin 5-Spice" keep lines to the store long, even in the winter.
You have the option of putting your ice cream in one of their housemade waffle cones that are constantly being made by the staff. If you prefer your sweet treat in a bowl, a waffle slice on the side is on the house. Jeni's also sells pints of their flavors to bring back home with you.
