JENI’S SPLENDID ICE CREAMS
Remember to leave room for dessert! Summer is back on a heat streak and it’s time to cool off with some amazing, handcrafted artisan ice cream from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams! With a variety of natural and one of a kind flavors that also include both frozen yogurt and sorbet, there are plenty of yummy options for everyone to satisfy your sweet tooth!

We hope to see you on Wednesday, July 15!2015FoodTruckFiestaJuly.indd
