Squirrel Nut Zipple and the 2020 JP Music Festival

Friday, September 18, 2020

The JP Music Fest has been postponed this year but we couldn't let a year go by without serving the official ice cream flavor of the festival, Squirrel Nut Zipple! A peanut butter ice cream with roasted, salted peanuts, with a caramel ripple. It's a symphony for the tastebuds! Come in to enjoy it now or wait until Fall 2021 - when the JP Music Fest will be back. We hope everyone is still finding ways to enjoy live music and the arts during the pandemic - whether it be via socially distant concerts outdoors or tuning into the [...] read more

J.P. Licks & Author Janae Marks

Monday, August 31, 2020

Janae Marks wrote the book “From the Desk of Zoe Washington”, set in Medford, Somerville, and Cambridge, MA. One of the places Zoe and her friends and family visit is the J.P. Licks in Davis Square and we just had to sit down and chat with her about how she came to set some of her story at J.P. Licks! 1. How did you decide where to set Zoe’s story? Did you grow up or go to school near Davis Square? I went to college at Tufts University, so I lived on campus down the road from Davis [...] read more

Scooping it Forward

Tuesday, August 4, 2020

Last month we started making deliveries to firehouses in our different neighborhoods. So far, we've visited 15 around town and we have noticed a bit of a pattern. Each time we ring the bell with our big freezer bag packed with a tub of ice cream, spoons, cups, napkins, and 3 different types of toppings, the door is answered by a firefighter with a slightly guarded, concerned look on their face. "Can we help you?" And then we start to explain who we are and why we're there. "Hi, our customers supported the campaign to bring you ice [...] read more

Meet Mr. Buttons From Lifting Spirits

Friday, April 24, 2020

We love when humans bring their dogs by the store to visit us. While only service dogs can come inside, we can see your puppers outside, knowing a treat awaits them when their people come back out, or when you share photos and video on social media of your doggos enjoying their cow paw ice cream.
Last week, we had a horse of a different color visit us in our Andover store. A literal horse! Well, a miniature pony, to be exact. Lifting Spirits Miniature Therapy Horses is one of our neighbors north of the city. [...] read more

What's Inside That Store?

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Have you ever looked up in our Jamaica Plain store and noticed a flying elf or taken a photo with our ceramic cow? Or sat in the teacup that sits in the middle of our Mission Hill location? Where in the world does Vince FIND these things when he's creating the interiors of the stores? Once upon a time, there was an amusement park in Whitman, MA called King's Castle Land. Founded in 1946, it had a nursery rhyme theme with a drawbridge entrance, an oversized shoe, and 14 rides. But in 1994, the owners decided to retire [...] read more

Apprentice Learning and J.P. Licks

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

J.P. Licks loves finding ways to deepen our connection with our communities. Recently, we started working with Apprentice Learning, an organization connected to Boston Public Schools to improve Boston high school graduation rates and make the transition from middle school to high school a bit smoother. An eighth grader from a middle school near our Jamaica Plain headquarters has joined us for a 6 week internship this fall, coming in 2 hours once a week. She is half way through the program and even with only 6 hours under her belt, she has already learned what it takes to [...] read more
