Sure, you can buy Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Publix, but wouldn't you rather let an expert hand-scoop a free cup for you? We think you would.

The Jeni's truck tour is coming to Orlando and will be parked at two locations in town during Friday and Saturday, May 24 and 25, featuring some of their signature flavors including Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Salted Peanut Butter, Brambleberry Crisp, Cream Puff, Gooey Buttercake, Darkest Chocolate, and the most basic of all artisan ice cream flavors, Frosé.

Put these dates and locations on your calendars, and prepare to stand in line for a little bit (read: wear light clothes and bring water).

Friday, May 24, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.:
Rifle Paper Co., 558 W. New England Ave., Winter Park
Saturday, May 25, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.:
Publix at The Market at Southside, 2873 S. Orange Ave., Orlando
