What Your Favorite Jeni's Ice Cream Flavor Says About You

Fancy cupcakes and fun-flavored macrons may have had their trendy time in the sun, but great ice cream? That'evergreen.

While there are many brands that boast the best scoop, a true ice cream connoisseur will tell you that it's nearly impossible to beat Jeni's.

Pass by one of Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream shops and you'll be instantly hit by a sweet, mouth-watering aroma—the founder, Jeni Britton Bauer, originally wanted to go into the fragrance business. Step inside, and you'll find pints with flavors ranging from Brambleberry Crisp to Savannah Buttermint to Sparkling Berry Punch (a seasonal option available during the holidays.)

While you will likely be tempted to try each and every flavor—especially once a new flavor hits the freezer—those who come to know and love Jeni's Ice Cream tend to find their favorite quickly. With so many different flavor combinations, there's bound to be one that speaks to you. Jeni's Ice Cream flavors are as different as their customers.

I had the daunting (okay, not so daunting) task of trying five of Jeni's most popular ice cream flavors, generously sent to me for free by the company. Here's what your favorite of these top-sellers says about you.

Brambleberry Crisp

"Oven-toasted oat streusel and a sweet-tart 'brambleberry' jam of blackberries and blackcurrants layered throughout vanilla ice cream."

If this is your jam (pun obviously intended), then you're a person who loves bathing in nostalgia, be it listening to your favorite album from middle school on repeat or building a fort on a snowy day just because it brings you back to childhood. You're an amazing listener who always knows how to give your friends the quiet support they need and kind, gentle advice that they may actually take.


Salty Caramel

"Fire-toasted sugar with sea salt, vanilla, and grass-grazed milk. A perfect balance of salty and sweet."

If this is your favorite flavor, you're someone who knows how to work and play hard. Just like this sweet-yet-salty flavor, you are perfectly balanced. Your friends may be in awe of how you can juggle a busy social calendar with a full course load, but that's just how you thrive. You would burn out if there was too much of one thing, but fortunately, you've been living this way for so long, you have it handled.


Darkest Chocolate

"Mouth-filling and palate-gripping with a pleasingly dry finish. The most amount of Fair Trade cocoa and the least amount of anything else."

You're basically the Chandler Bing of your friend group: funny, sarcastic, and yeah, a little dark on occasion. You may come off as a total jokester, but those closest to you know that you're really sweet deep down.


Salted Peanut Butter With Chocolate Flecks

"Salted and roasted ground peanuts with grass-grazed milk and crunchy, dark chocolate flecks."

This is not your typical peanut butter and chocolate flavor, which is great, because you are anything but typical. You love the finer things in life, and you're very okay with saying as much. Sure, your friends may roll their eyes when you ask them to take yet another picture for the 'gram, but they also know you're the one to go-to for any and all recommendations, be it the latest skincare product or Netflix show. You're a tastemaker, babe.

Brown Butter Almond Brittle

"Brown-butter-almond candy crushed into buttercream ice cream."

You're the older sibling of your group of friends, even if you're not technically older than anyone. You are mature, wise, and always ready to dish out some sage wisdom, even if your friends don't always want to hear it. If there's a group project, all eyes are on you, but that's okay because you're always ready with the best PowerPoint template.
