Along with new Spring flavors and Mother’s Day cakes, J.P. Licks is kicking off May with a Cinco de Mayo celebration week at their eight stores in and around the Boston area.
Come celebrate Cinco De Mayo with J.P. Licks May 1st through May 7th customers will receive double points on their Cow Card for every purchase made! J.P. Licks will also be serving up the best margaritas north of the border, made with their signature fresh margarita sorbet comprised of fresh lime juice and Tequila served in a 12 oz. margarita glass that patrons can keep. They will be serving them up in three flavors, Original, Spicy Mango and a Habanera Lime. J.P. Licks is also bringing back two popular ice cream flavors for the month, El Diablo, chocolate ice cream with cayenne pepper and cinnamon and Dulce de Leche, caramel ice cream with a caramelized caramel swirl.
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10th and J.P. Licks offers the perfect dessert. J.P. Licks’ Mother’s Day cake is a vanilla ice cream cake with a decadent center of homemade hot fudge, topped with vanilla icing, flowers and a wish for a “Happy Mother’s Day”. All of J.P. Licks’ cakes are hand packed which eliminates the air that is present in most ice cream cakes thereby creating a dense and absolutely delicious cake. Custom cake orders for Mother’s Day must be placed at least 48 hours in advance. A fresh homemade Key Lime Pie is May’s featured pie made with fresh Lime Sherbet and topped with lime zest and a lime slice.
“Cinco de Mayo is quickly becoming as popular as St. Patrick’s Day. It’ll be a festive week at J.P. Licks – our staff will be in costume and there will be plenty of music, margaritas and merriment,” noted Vince Petryk, founder of J.P. Licks.
He continued, “Spring is here and so brings back more refreshing citrus flavored sorbet and sherbets.”
J.P. Licks flavors for May include Fresh Lime Sherbet; Fresh Lemon Hibiscus Sorbet; Fresh Margarita Sorbet; Butter Cashew; Fresh Banana; Strawberry Cheesecake; Peanut Butter Chip; El Diablo; Dulce de Leche; Chocolate Brownie, Black Cherry Lactose Free and an all NEW Coconut Almond Chip low fat hard yogurt.
