Mark you calendar — this Sunday is National Ice Cream Day and with temperatures almost reaching double digits, it’s the perfect opportunity to cool off with a pint of ice cream! And you’re in luck: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams just unveiled its newest State Fair Collection. An homage to the color, energy, and flavor of a great American state fair. Pleasantly puckery and beautifully bouncy Watermelon Taffy. Fresh squeezed Orange Blossom Chiffon with a texture magically lighter than air. Bright and buttery Sun-Popped Corn actually popped by sunshine! Salty, citrusy, and sweet Atlantic Beach Pie — a slice of summer perfection. And the tamed force of nature that is Wildberry Lavender. So step right up and enjoy the Jeni’s State Fair Collection.
