Fresh Cucumber ice cream every July. I love it so much that I stock up at the end of the month and make it last as long as I can.

Try the Monthly Specials- they're fantastic and J P Licks only carries them for a limited time! I love the exotic flavors, such as Avocado and Hawaii Flower Power, but they usually carry some limited-edition flavors for less adventurous eaters.

Yes, they have many flavours and many locations. I love their Sam Adams Cream Stout concoctions THE BEST. I bought a whole pint of this stuff just so I didn't run out of it in one serving!

I've been eating JP Licks since 1986 and have yet to find an ice cream I like any bit as much. Soo creamy and never too sweet. The new Yogurt X is incredible, The El Diablo is worth going to Hell for, and the Coconut Almond Chip is unparalleled!! Three cheers for JP Licks!

Yeah, it's a chain and a little overpriced, but there just isn't anything like it. The frozen yogurt options are incredible and they have good coffee drinks, too.

Nothing more refreshing than nonfat Yogurt X. Plain, cherry, raspberry, coconut...it's all good!
