Blogger Ice Cream Social hosted by Jessica Dennis, Gluten Free Boston Girl.
My sister, Jessica, partnered with J.P. Licks for a night of ice cream tasting and socializing with other bloggers and friends at the Beacon Hill location. We were able to sign up through Eventbrite, a website designed to find, manage, and plan events. We learned all about J.P. Licks ice cream and the history of how it all began in 1981 in Jamaica Plain. After the tasting, we were all given a little ice cream in any flavor we wanted. My friend, Laura, and I both LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, so we ordered that and Jess got the vegan Madagascar Vanilla Coconut. They also sell sundaes, smoothies, cakes, and pies!
I tried the soft serve Baked Apple, Peanut Butter, and Tiramisu as well as the three ice cream flavors listed below:
Baileys Chocolate Chip Cheesecake: Irish cream liquor, cheesecake ice cream, graham crackers, and chocolate chips
Cow Trax: Vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, mini peanut butter cups and chocolate chips
Leprechaun Brew: Green ice cream made with Sam Adams Beer (limited time only)
Mint Irish Lace: Green mint ice cream with bits of chocolate (gluten-free)
J.P. Licks offers a few gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan ice cream options, and serves only Kosher certified products. J.P. Licks began roasting their own coffee in 1999. They also sell breakfast items such as egg sandwiches, savory croissants, fruit, and baked goods. They get involved with their communities by supporting local charities, schools, and non-profit organizations.
