Mispronunciation Hall of Fame – Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

There’s no denying that Feuerzangenbowle Sorbet, our special Cyber Monday flavor, was a mouthful of a name.

But if you found yourself flustered and stumbling over that pile up of consonants and vowels, you won’t be at all abashed when you read the entries in our Mispronunciation Hall of Fame.

A few years ago, our scoop shop ambassadors began amassing an impressive collection of flavor names uttered by customers at the counters. From “Graveyard Mint” (Backyard Mint) to “Queen City Kanye” (Queen City Cayenne), the most colorful alternative flavor names have been duly noted.

Below, in bold, are the official names of past and present flavors followed by their fantastic variations.
