Charleston got its first taste of the newest Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams yesterday, and it was a hit. Of course, giving away free scoops helped, but more than an estimated 200 people lined up to wait for the 7:00 p.m. opening at 499 King St. Police on the scene guessed the queue went on for a half-mile.
The Ohio-based ice cream shop is currently open at their regular hours of 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week. Some limited addition flavors to check out soon include the Charleston-inspired flavor of sweet cream with rum molasses and peanuts. For beer lovers, there's an impressive saison with sunflower seeds and golden flax option.
