Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams: First it was Dolly Parton, now it’s Olivia Rodrigo. Ahead of today’s release of the singer’s second album “Guts,” the fancy ice cream purveyor is turning its waffle cones purple as part of a new collaboration. Consumers can order the album through Jeni’s site and also order ice cream “like Olivia,” who provided her own recommendation for a scoop of Brambleberry Crisp and Wildberry Lavender on a Buttercrisp Waffle cone. Let’s hope Jeni’s is better prepared for this mashup than it was for 2021’s Dolly Parton partnership, which crashed its website.
