Ice Cream: A Valentine's Day Treat

Owner Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Ohio's artisanal frozen treat pioneers, believes that ice cream is the ultimate aphrodisiac; you can learn a lot about a person by the flavors they choose (classic? bold?) and how they eat their ice cream (do they lick or bite?). Its taste, scent and body engages all the senses.

People have said yes to marriage proposals written on flavor cards inside Jeni's freezer cases, and have served their own custom Jeni's flavor in place of traditional wedding cake. In fact, Jeni's hosted its first wedding this past December. The bride and groom shared a cone of the signature Pistachio & Honey and Wildberry Lavender during an intimate ceremony in one of Jeni's brightly-colored Columbus scoop shops.

Jeni's signature and limited edition pints are also a refreshing departure from standard chocolates, in case you're doing any gift guides. Collections range from $70-$175 and individual flavors are $12 each all available for home delivery within the United States at
