Faith’s Favorite Pint: Milkiest Chocolate Ice Cream from Jeni’s Splendid

It’s no surprise that Faith’s favorite ice cream comes from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. Jeni’s is based in Columbus, Ohio, where Faith also lives. A trip to visit her is not complete without going to the scoop shop for a sundae.

Here’s what Faith has to say about her favorite pint.

This ice cream expresses a contradiction for me: it’s funny that it’s my favorite because I don’t really love chocolate. I’ll take the caramel, the cookie, and the fruity over chocolate nearly every time. But this ice cream, in being the exception to this rule, completely transcends it. When I do love chocolate, it’s the milkier, sweeter type, but ideally still with a strong cacao kick. This ice cream delivers on every level and I love it so much. It’s the sweet, chocolatey scoop that gives milk chocolate a good name.
