Cupid would approve of J.P. Licks’ line of hot and cold treats that are being offered during February. The award-winning homemade ice cream café with eight shops in and around Boston offers something for everyone to enjoy this month.
Spice Things Up with El Diablo!
Warm up with J.P. Licks’ award winning El Diablo Hot Chocolate! Having recently won the Harvard Square People’s Choice Award, El Diablo Hot Chocolate is made with J.P. Licks’ homemade hot chocolate mix and an added kick of cayenne pepper!
Looking for a dessert with real “spice”? Back by popular demand, J.P. Lick’s offers a “hot” El Diablo sundae made with cinnamon and cayenne peppered chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and sprinkled with hot cinnamon hearts.
New at J.P. Licks – Rain Forest Alliance Coffee!
February is Specialty Coffee Month and J.P. Licks is proud to introduce their first Rain Forest Alliance coffee, “Don Telmo Reserva” from Colombia. It’s certified organic, shade grown and bird-friendly, and the Rain Forest Alliance seal ensures that everyone in the chain (growers, harvesters, processors, and Mother Earth) gets fair treatment and compensation.
The bean brews a lovely cup of coffee, in fact, it’s one of the smoothest Colombian flavors; very well balanced with slight notes of chocolate.
Valentine’s Day Cakes
Don’t forget to pick up your Valentine’s Day cake! Recognizing that there are just as many “vanilla lovers” as there are “chocolate lovers”, J.P. Licks is rolling out two new ice cream cakes this year. For those who are “pure of heart”, J.P. Licks is offering an Elegant Vanilla cake, made with J.P. Licks’ homemade ultra-rich vanilla ice cream and topped with a vanilla ice cream icing and a red heart. Those looking to quell their chocolate craving will love J.P. Licks’ Chocolate Covered Oreo cake made with Oreo ice cream generously covered in decadent chocolate ganache and topped with a red heart.
From now until February 14th, J.P. Licks Cash Cow loyalty cardholders will receive an extra $5 in rewards with a Valentine’s cake purchase. Not a Cash Cow card holder? Simply visit J.P. Licks to get one and register it to start earning rewards.
