Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams' Vending Machine

Only recently have airports (I include you too, sporting arenas and amusement parks) started to realize that having a captive audience doesn’t mean it's OK to charge exorbitant prices for average food. I think JetBlue’s Terminal 5 at JFK in New York led the pack in offering the customer a better experience. The place is vibrant! There’s fun 80s music and shops (hello, Pet Shop Boys and MUJI), tasty looking quick food options - including a salad bar, and nice restaurants. Why wouldn’t you want to go a little earlier or purposely pick jetBlue as your carrier so you can fly out of that awesome terminal?

If you don’t have reason to fly to or through CMH: Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, OH, maybe now you do. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is installing three vending machines, one in each concourse by summer’s end. Jeni’s ice cream, around since 2009, makes some super fun and tasty ice creams like cherry lambic sorbet; brambleberry crisp; and my favorite, salty caramel. The super cute vending machines will be dispensing six-ounce ice cream servings, frozen yogurts and ice cream sandwiches. I think a layover at CMH might be required for our trips to NYC.
