    Since its first store sprouted up in Columbus, Ohio, Jeni's has become an ice cream empire around the country. Every batch from goat cheese with cognac figs to pistachio honey bursts with flavor. Read more

    If you're missing gravel road you can order salty caramel with roasted salted almonds on top. Also if you don't want to stand in line - try the new iphone app.

    Tried several flavors...salted caramel is their famous flavor..its very strong...the pistachio is great! The bramelberry is like a blackberry cobbler! Always a long line

    Find signature and seasonal flavors that will blow your socks off! Get samples galore, but definitely try the "Buckeye State" while you're visiting colleges in Ohio's capital!

    Strange as it may sound, you can never go wrong with the Queen City Cayenne Ice Cream! Sweet and chocolaty with this mysterious heat that lingers in the back of your mouth. I love it.

    I had the orange blossom. Get the waffle cone. So worth it!

    Don't want to wait in that damn licker line while your dinner guests wait for desert?Download Jenis licker skipper app on the iTunes Store. "Why Lick It When You Can Skip It?" (use the side door too!)

    Here's what you need to do. Have a scoop of Gravel Road with a side of Gravel Road and some Gravel Road on top.

    Even though it's not on the menu any more, they'll still give you a "study" if you ask - four scoops.

    Ask for samples. Try something that sounds just a little too strange, you'll probably love it.

    Watch the Ohio episode of How The States Got Their Shapes. They are here in the Short North, and the mayor names Jeni's as the essence of Columbus!

    Only go here if you like to pay lots of money to have snack peddlers look down their noses at you. For those with dignity, Graeter's is THE BEST ice cream in Columbus.
