According to Fox 28, The wait is over for fans of Jeni’s Ice Cream.
After weeks of shutting down operations to address a listeria contamination, the company announced they’ve resumed production for their ice creams and will re-open their shops next Friday, May 22 at 7 pm.
They also announced a new limited edition flavor will be introduced with the re-opening: sun-popped corn.
While it remains unclear which other flavors will return, one omission for the foreseeable future will be Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk. The entire supply was lost during their 535,000 pound disposal of their products. All of the discarded items were recycled into various forms and uses like energy and fertilizer.
Jeni’s added they fellow ice cream makers offered assistance during the decontamination process to to help them expedite the process of getting back up and running.
Johnson’s invited them to use their kitchen, while Pierre’s, Toft’s, Velvet, and Smith’s offered to make the ice creams to make Jeni’s ice cream at their facilities.
