  • Queen City Cayenne - Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Leaves the palate tingly.

Velvety, rich milk chocolate ice cream spiked with cayenne and cinnamon. Queen City Cayenne is the very first ice cream Jeni ever made. In 1996, as a college student obsessed with scent, Jeni added cayenne essential oil to a store-bought chocolate ice cream. It was cold and sweet, then it burst into flames in her throat. Queen City Cayenne still has the same sweet-heat effect. You’ll first taste rich milk chocolate made with Fair Trade cocoa powder. Then comes the kick from cayenne pepper and Vietnamese cinnamon. The name is a tribute to Cincinnati (nicknamed the Queen City), famous for its sweet and spicy chili made with cayenne and a hint of chocolate and cinnamon.
