'Tis the Season for Coquito

Monday, December 16, 2019

Couqito is one of those flavors we only make once a year - and with good reason! Coquito (in its liquid form) originated in Puerto Rico and traditionally served during the Christmas season. Translating to “little coconut”, Coquito (the drink) consists of coconut milk, coconut cream, sweet condensed milk, and Puerto Rican Rum. But since recipes vary family to family and evolve as generations pass it down you may never taste the same drink twice! In fact, it was one of our J.P. Licks team members with a family recipe for Coquito who approached Vince about 12 years [...] read more

Happy Anniversary, Compost Style

Friday, December 20, 2019

A year ago this week, City Councilor Matt O’Malley (District 6) joined us in our Jamaica Plain World Headquarters to help us launch our new composting program. Councilor O’Malley heads up the Environment & Sustainability Committee and has been working tirelessly to help steer Boston towards being a greener city. So we naturally reached out to him when we decided we wanted to start a new green initiative of our own. Our JP store goes through so much coffee every day and until a year ago, we threw all the grounds away - and then we learned what [...] read more

Happy Anniversary Salted Caramel Cookies n Cream!

Monday, December 2, 2019

How quickly a year flies by! It’s not too often we make a featured flavor a permanent flavor. In fact, December marks the 1 year anniversary of the last time we did it! Our Salted Caramel Cookies ’n’ Cream ice cream was so popular that even though it has been years since we’d done it, we made it a permanent flavor. That means every store has it every day, no waiting for a new month to come around. A lot of factors go into the decision - how often do you ask for it, how much do you [...] 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 [...] 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
