More of President Joe Bidens Favorite ice cream has arrived in Houston. After opening his first local shop in the Heights in December 2019, Jeni’s delicious ice cream debuts his second at CITYCENTRE at 801 City and Country.
The company, which is expanding rapidly with stores across the country, was started by an ice cream maker and cookbook author Jeni Britton Bauer. One of the selling points of ice cream is the lack of synthetic flavors, colors, stabilizers and emulsifiers. The results are marketed as “uniquely smooth texture and buttercream body, with a light taste and clean finish”.

Bauer opened their first shop called Scream in Columbus, Ohio in 1996, but with only one flavor offered per day, it wasn’t a hit. She closed the shop, thought about the concept and then Jenis Splendid Ice Creams was born. Bauer’s cookbook Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home won a James Beard Award in 2012. She was followed by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts in 2014.
The new Scoop Shop offers flavors like Brown butter almond brittle, the new Buttercream birthday cake and limited edition wedding cake. Jeni’s also sells dairy-free ice cream in flavors such as Dark chocolate truffles. The ingredients are often sourced from independent dairies and farmers in the United States.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is known for occasionally causing controversy with its limited-time flavors. In addition to creating White House chocolate chips for number-one fan President Biden, it sold out quickly Strawberry Pretzel Cake, a collaboration with National Treasure Dolly Parton. The polarization sounded less tasty All bagels Taste.
Regardless of when standing still is death, a visit to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams becomes a living experience thanks to the parade of flavors.
