9 pints

A shipment of jeni's ice cream arrived at our door a little while ago, packed in dry ice. Whoa!






L to R, starting at the top: lavender and wild blueberry, pistachio and Ashland County honey, raspberry yogurt, Thai chili, gravel road (salty caramel with smoked almonds), dark cocoa gelato, salty caramel, raspberry (sorbet, I think), and lemon yogurt.

This is a birthday present but my birthday is still a few days away so we're going to wait before digging in. This may require an extraordinary force of will. I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE: Jeni's advises how to care for their ice creams:
After receiving your shipment, place your ice creams in your freezer for at least two hours before they come up to scooping temperature. The flavor and texture is ideal when the ice cream is pliable.

These ice creams will stay fresh for several weeks if left unopened. Once opened, it is best to finish your pint as soon as possible--within a day or two. To prevent ice crystal formation, always keep the ice cream frozen and cover any exposed product with plastic wrap.

Don't wait! Don't wait! What if you wait too long, and can't finish some of those containers before the dreaded crystals set it - those things persumably don't contain guar gum! Eat, right now!

You live in a city that has KOPPS! Why would you have ice cream mailed in?
