    I live for every July, when Fresh Cucumber ice cream reappears on the menu. (I bide my time during the rest of the year with Cookies 'n' Cake Batter.)

    Nothing like blasting music and the rudest cashier I've ever encountered at a usually friendly JP Licks. Thanks for ruining what was supposed to be a relaxing break for a treat.

    I was excited to try it but maybe I got the wrong flavors (cream stout and mint chip hard yogurt) because I don't believe this lived up to its hype.

    The hot fudge is excellent, and very rich. Try it over some coconut almond or cappuccino crunch. Or both.

    Get a chipwich - tasty cookies and cheaper than a small ice cream. If they're not busy, they'll make them special with whatever flavor ice cream and cookies you want.
