You might remember I had, and fell in love with, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams when I went to Columbus, Ohio last year. You can see that blog post by CLICKING HERE.
I had to calm down before I opened the box because I was so excited. My new BICFF, Helen, had said she was going to send me some ice cream because she had tried a killer flavor she knew I would love but the last she mentioned was she would send me a tracking number once she had one. I hadn't heard about it again so I was genuinely surprised to find the ice cream on my porch this afternoon.
Beneath the dry ice there was 6 pints of frozen goodness all nestled cold and cozy in the styrofoam shipping container. There was a big warning about not putting the bag of dry ice on your countertop so I didn't.
How gorgeous is this picture? Does it make your mouth water? The flavors she chose included my favorite "Salty Caramel" and the new flavor she had just tried "Mackenzie Creamery Goat Cheese with Cognac Figs." Here are some close ups for you to enjoy:

I am seriously a Jeni's fanatic. I'd been meaning to order a big batch of ice cream by mail but hadn't done it all year because I didn't know when I'd be here to receive the shipment. Now that it's cooler out it's ok if the box sits on the porch for a bit. Once I'm through this batch I may have to order more for my Christmas present to myself. In the meantime you can also become a Jeni's fanatic by joining their Facebook Group!
