The second day of spring has been nothing short of wonderful. I spent a few hours on this gorgeous 69 degrees Friday strolling through the Short North and eating ice cream from the greatest shop ever. I devoured a scoop of “banana french toast” (banana and honey ice cream with pecans, french toast, cinnamon, coffee and maple syrup) and “birch + marshmallow” (foamy root bear float and vanilla ice cream with handmade vanilla bean marshmallows). 

The ice cream flavors were mouth-watering good and I wish I could have every single one of you visit me so I can treat you. Jeni’s is known for their weird flavor combinations! Check out their website to see some of their unique flavors and see if their is a shop near your area. I highly recommend it!
