    Great press and congratulations.

    I am, however, a bit concerned about the use of gelatin in the frozen yogurts. A good friend of mine is a vegetarian. Shoot. I sent her the article and tried to break the bad news to her.

    FYI, gelatin is not an ingredient in the yogurts in Jeni’s Stores. The reason it was used in these recipes is to accomodate average home ice cream machines.

    (Recipe development process mentioned here:

    )

    I would encourage your friend to experiment without gelatin and see how it works – part of the fun is in the experimentation! Frankly, having tasted most of the 75 recipes attempted, they ranged from very good to excellent to incredible. Little tweaks might work well – Cheers!

    I became so addicted to the Queen City Cayenne ice cream that I broke my budget (7 bucks for a pint– X many (many!) pints really hurt!). So here’s my Poor Man’s Jeni’s recipe: Buy a half gallon of UDF chocolate and cayenne pepper powder, a few scoops in a big bowl, then add a spoonful of chili pepper power on top, then stir! Jeni’s version is much better, but if you’re an addict and don’t have the cash to continually feed it, this ain’t too bad.

    Among my many favorite flavors is now the Mango Lassi. It nursed a hangover. Kid’s portion in a cup with a spoon.

    Other favorites include the lemon yogurt with blueberry & the strawberry buttermilk

    I want to try the new chocolate with specks

    The Bexley store is beautiful. I dig the steel stools in that color. It’s so cool it’s cold. If I only new how to post pics on here from my new iPhone. Go check it out. Walker you are close!

    Jeni’s is the newest Bon Appetit, page 82/83.

    Feature on best “anything” state by state.

    I like Jeni’s and I like Bon Appetit.

    Cooking Light sucks.
    I think Gourmet kind of sucks.
    Food and Wine, ehh ok.

    Saveur is really good!!

    Thank you.
