Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Opened to Big Crowds

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

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.
