    Jeni’s seems to have moved away from their formerly hyper-local beginnings, does anyone know if they’re purchasing ice cream base from Blue Bell?

    The conspiracy nut inside me is running wild with all types of speculation. Does this have anything to do with Jeni selling a substancial portion of her business to a large NY based private equity firm?

    Like is this firm demanding lower standards for higher profits which could have caused this to happen? Is some of the ice cream (of ice milk as it may be as Jeni is using milk rather than cream to make her ice creams) production being farmed out to other larger ice cream producers, perhaps Blue Bell, to further reduce costs?

    Just wild speculation.

    That deal didn’t happen, thankfully. Genuinely interesting speculation though.

    In my opinion, making the best ice cream in the world and trying to grow your business exponentially is contradictory.

    It was a better product years ago, not just because of Snowville but also because of their smaller production runs, higher quality control and I’ll be damned if I don’t miss the hand written labels.

    I would gladly fill a garbage bag of recently discarded pints for a 0.0001% chance of death.

    I don’t know how true it is, but posters on Reddit have said people who work there say it’s basically glorified stuff from GFS now, which honestly wouldn’t really be that surprising when you’re trying to get big.

    Jeni’s Solves Listeria Issue, Working Towards Reopening
    May 6, 2015 4:59 pm – Walker Evans

    On April 23rd, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams issued a recall after their ice cream tested positive for Listeria. The company voluntarily shut down both production lines and their retail stores. After a two-week inspection, they’ve identified the source of the problem and are working toward a $200,000 upgrade to their production kitchen to prevent future issues.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to buy a pint again soon.

    Well, if you’re looking for Cherry Lambic, you’re going to be S.O.L. Jeni’s hasn’t made that flavor for a couple of years now (it became too expensive to mass-produce). To be 100% honest, that was the point when Jeni’s lost its luster for me; the company seemed to be more focused on expanding its brand than creating a high-quality product. Then again, I was always a Denise’s guy myself…

    I’m too busy enjoying their ice cream to worry about their overhead cost of ingredients.

    I hope they slap a sticker on the pints that says something along the lines of “NOW 100% LISTERIA FREE”

    But that might backfire :(

    Pay teenagers slave wages to make the “world’s greatest ice cream” and follow loose cleaning procedures minimally enforced by underpaid shiftleaders and “managers” and this was bound to happen. Shame they couldn’t see it coming.
