Oven-toasted oat streusel and a sweet-tart “brambleberry” jam of blackberries and blackcurrants layered throughout vanilla ice cream.
Brambleberry Crisp is inspired by the brambly berry bushes that litter the hillsides of the Appalachian foothills—the kinds of purple berries Jeni used to pick as a child. The sweet vanilla ice cream is made with high-quality vanilla from Madagascar and oven-toasted, brown sugar oat streusel is based on Jeni’s family recipe. The jam is made just for Jeni's—including grown-for-them blackberries from Jeni's longtime farm partner, Hirsch Fruit Farm. All of these elements come together to form a flavor reminiscent of a fresh berry fruit crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. First introduced in 2009 during Jeni's Foggy Mountain Collection, which highlighted the flavors and culture of Appalachia, Brambleberry Crisp was such a superstar that they had to keep it on the menu full-time.
