Ice cream good enough for the vice president
If our blog post didn't convince you that the ice cream is amazing and you have to try it, consider that Vice President Joe Biden tasted it this week during his visit to Central Ohio (where Jeni's is based).

cone from Jeni Britton Bauer, owner of Jeni's Splendid Ice
Creams, at the North Market in Columbus on Thursday.
Vice President Joe Biden took in some local fare as he stopped at an indoor farmer’s market during a visit to central Ohio.
Biden noshed on locally made Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams during the brief stop at North Market in downtown Columbus, ordering vanilla and dark chocolate flavors in a waffle cone and chatting with owner Jeni Britton Bauer.
Biden, accompanied by Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, also talked with employees and shoppers inside the market and sampled some popcorn and a Belgian waffle.
Biden was in Ohio to talk about college affordability at a separate event held at a suburban high school earlier in the day.
Later Thursday, he planned to attend a fundraising event at the Athletic Club of Columbus.
