Jeni’s & Nina West
In celebration of Pride Month, local drag queen and philanthropist Nina West is partnering with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams to put out a new ice cream flavor, an online connection and t-shirt. The proceeds will go to The Nina West Foundation, which supports LGBTQIA+ causes.
West’s Dream Puff, a slightly salty vanilla custard ice cream with pastry flakes and strawberry sauce, is now available at Jeni’s scoop shops nationwide. It’ll be available while supplies last.
Along with the specialty flavor, Jeni’s fans can now access the Nina West Pride Collection, available online. The curated lineup of West’s favorite flavors includes Gooey Butter Cake, Sweet Cream Biscuits & Jam, Blackout Chocolate Cake, and Cold Brew with Coconut Cream.
“I’ve known and been a fan of Jeni as long as I can remember, so this is a dream come true,” said Nina West. “Dream Puff is exquisite. Thank you, Jeni, for this incredible experience and for supporting The Nina West Foundation.”
Jeni’s 2019 Pride t-shirt is also available online.
