An astronomical experience like no other, it's inspired schools to cancel classes and businesses to close early. This rare celestial event — the total solar eclipse on April 8 — will plunge millions into total darkness in the middle of a Monday afternoon and is, in short, kind of a big deal.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is celebrating with its latest collection, Punk Stargonaut — four flavors from a distant galaxy. The collection imagines a fictional flight through space, where they gathered all the alien fruit they could find and then turned these otherworldly flavors into vibrant ice creams. Like a fragment of a half-remembered song, every one of Jeni's four limited-edition ice creams feels familiar but just out of reach — layered to spark curiosity and keep customers guessing.

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

The Punk Stargonaut Collection is available 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.
