NYE, On Ice

Email_TastingParty.112830.jpgNo plans for New Years Eve? Don't feel like fighting the masses for expensive party tickets and limited taxis? No, worries. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams has just the thing. This year, Jeni's (based in Ohio and delivering quality, artisan scoops) is suggesting that you switch things up. Don't go out, stay in.

With most pints priced at $12-$14 per pop, the sublime holiday collection set can be shipped directly to you, complete with 6 pints of ice cream for a steal at $70.

A pinch of holidays, a dash of good company, just add ice cream and mix well!
