READER REVIEW: Winston's Review of Jeni's Splendid Sweet Corn & Black Raspberries


During a recent visit to Jeni’s scoop shop, I tested out Jeni’s Sweet Corn & Black Raspberries, and found that I was taken aback at the flavor complexity of something that seemed so simple; I decided to buy a pint and write a review.


The base is a rich, cream base infused with a moderate, delightful corn boldness that is strangely very satisfying. Normally, I’m a big fan of all things coffee, chocolate, or peanut butter; however, this base proved so unique and soothing that I can must admit that I enjoy it as much those heartier options. You can’t deny the presence of corn with each bite, and the experience profound.


The Black Raspberry swirl is absolutely perfect: very sweet, overflowing with raspberry flavor (and some seeds), mildly tart, and a perfect compliment to the soothing, neutral base. The swirl tended to sit near the bottom and edges of the pint, so if you’re splitting the pint, I would alternate scoops between bowls and pay attention to what you’re scooping.


This is a great pint that anyone would enjoy. I’m not a huge fan of fruit-based ice creams, but this one seems to join Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam as being an exception---another unique exception. Definitely try it if you can.

  2. Does it taste anything like cornbread? If so then I can defiantly see it working.

  3. It doesn't taste like cornbread. It tastes like fresh August corn on the cob infused with rich, heavy cream. Quite pleasing.
