    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.

    They roast their own coffee. And I get the peanut butter's gluten free!

    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 oatmeal cookie hard yogurt is a less guilty way of satisfying your sweet tooth :)

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

    Don't sleep on the sorbet. I had the Orange Irish, and was delightfully surprised at how much flavor was packed into each spoonful.

    Amazing ice cream and coffee, but, surprisingly, their tart frozen yogurt is also very good! I prefer it to iYO and Orange Leaf.

    The vegan soy chai "ice cream" is great! I would suggest getting a kiddie size because the unique taste is a lot to handle.

    The El Diablo - chocolate ice cream with cinnamon and chile pepper - comes into season around February. GET IT WHILE IT'S HOT.

    Lynne B · September 10, 2011
  • Meg M.

    Hot? Should probably get some ice cream. Take a seat outside, there's a 40% chance that a hoedown is happening.
