Dubbed “the event of a lifetime” and “an astronomical experience like no other,” it’s inspired schools in North America to cancel classes and businesses to close early. The rare celestial event — aka, the total solar eclipse on April 8 — will plunge millions of people in its path from Mexico through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador into total darkness in the middle of a Monday afternoon.

Adding to the coming excitement, on March 28 Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams released its latest collection, Punk Stargonaut, featuring four flavors “from a distant galaxy,” as described below:

Nebula Berry — A bright and bouncy ice cream that tastes tart like a blueberry and vibrant like a raspberry with a elderflower finish.
Cosmic Bloom — The flavor is a tropical delicacy — citrusy like a mandarin, refreshing like a kiwi, and punchy like passion fruit.
Purple Star Born — Jeni’s first-ever grape ice cream! is Intensely juicy with Concord grape and puckery blackcurrants.
Supermoon — The revival of a customer favorite tastes like candied violet and marshmallows — a combination reminiscent of marshmallow cereal milk.

The Punk Stargonaut Collection is now available at Jeni’s scoop shops across the USA and online.

In addition, Jeni’s has also released a special topping, Space Dust—a fizzy popping candy that adds another dimension to all of its flavors. Space Dust is available as a topping in shops and also in take-home bags in scoop shops and online with the collection.

Founded in 2002 by James Beard Award-winning ice cream maker Jeni Britton, Columbus, Ohio-based Jeni’s is a Certified B Corporation known for its social, environmental and business leadership with more than 85 scoop shops, an online shop and distribution in top grocery stores throughout the United States.
