YUM ! – The best in Boston ! What else can I say...
Cake Batter is Back at J.P. Licks! – Hey Chizz 25.... Cake Batter is back!!!!!! Plase come back to visit! :)
Lossing the Flavor – I love JP Licks but every since they discontinued Cake Batter, I haven't been going as much. Their new flavor brownie batter is okay but i miss the CAKE!!! bring it back asap!
Best ice cream on Newbury St.! – Definitely the best bet for ice cream lovers if you're on Newbury St. Ben & Jerry's is fine, but if you're looking for really good homemade ice cream with a wide selection of the tastiest flavors you could image, don't hesitate on coming here! My personal favorite is a combination of kowlua and coconut, but my friends always seem to favor the cake batter. For this month they have a bunch of Opening Day/Red Sox inspired flavors. The "Green Monster Tea" is definitely the one I sooo want and intend to try next - it's green tea flavored and loaded with natural antioxidants, yuuum. For those who like cake batter but are on a real sweet tooth kick, I suggest trying the "Batter Up!" - cake batter ice cream, loaded up with brownie bits.
Location is great, as it's at the very end of Newbury St. (across from Uban Outfitters). You can get off at the Hynes Convention Center stop on the green line and pick some up, and then walk off the (well deserved) calories by shopping all the way down the rest of Newbury. Win-win, right?! :)
Deck On J.P. Licks - Boston Restaurant Review – So, after my slightly disappointing dinner last night, I decided to skip dessert at Clio, and head back out on Newbury Street. During my casual stroll, amongst all of the interesting looking shops, cafes and restaurants, I had seen a sign for J.P. Licks that said "$1.00 scoop day". Seemed like the perfect price to me, so I headed in...

Whoever decided to place a JP Licks on Newbury Street right near the Hynes T stop was a genius!! A perfect after-shopping treat (before shopping, no way - ice cream melts everywhere, and who wants to try on clothes after eating 2982935 calories?!). JP Licks' ice cream remains unsurpassed in quality and taste. A bit pricey for a few scoops, but hey, that's Boston prices for ya. Usually some pretty long lines, but don't worry, it moves pretty quickly.
gross on multiple tries – I always listen to EVERYONE I know who raves that this place is so yummy and, since I love Ice cream, I try it again and again. Not only is it super expensive but its gross if you get anything but a scoop in a bowl. I got a frappe and literally threw it in the trash right next to the cash register. The place was so packed and it was so hot out I couldn't even try to get my 6 bux back! always gross. I have a theory people just like to go here because it has this stupid alternative vibe. So they rave about the vibe not the nasty ice cream!
on a side note: I did email them to tell them of my exp after like 3 times going and they never replied which makes it a million times worse to me, for a *local* company and a *local* customer.I would do zero stars
Remember wow doritos? same effect with fat free sugar free yogurt! – Ok, too good to be true. I loved the taste but my friend and I felt way too full after a few bites. Plan on visiting the bathroom often in any of the restaurants nearby right after! Go for the real ice cream. I'm sure it's great
A sweet treat on Newbury Street – With classic as well as inventive flavors, this is the destination if you?re craving a cone or cup of ice cream on Newbury Street. The topping bar has just as much variety with an array of fruits, candies and other edible accessories. The store is small though, so it can be hard sometimes when it?s busy to find a place to sit.
Awesome Ice Cream – There is always a line, though it usually moves quickly. I have never been disappointed with neither the service nor the ice cream. I take all of my out-of-town visitors, and would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
