Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

We all know Dad can enjoy a six pack of beer, but how about a six pack of Jeni’s ice cream this year instead? Their special Father’s Day Collection ($68 for six pints) features flavors like Blackout Chocolate Cake, Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks, Coffee with Cream & Sugar, Salty Caramel, Gooey Butter Cake, and Skillet Cinnamon Roll.
