Jenn Wohletz first heard of Jeni Britton Bauer's magical, frozen concoctions back in 2006, when Sophia Ford Coppola's Marie Antoinette came out, and Jeni's created a collection of whole-milk yogurt-based, specially-flavored ice creams inspired by the film. The Jeni's flavors were almost as delicious as the movie that inspired them.
I agree, Jenn-- Marie Antoinette just doesn't get the respect it truly deserves. Something about the casting, the cinematography, and the soundtrack elevates it above your normal corset-sploitation flick.
And ice cream is cool, too, I guess.
Would you pay $12.99 for a pint of ice cream? (That's what you'll pay for a pint of jeni's at Cook's Fresh Market.) How about to see a movie? Post your thoughts below.
