“Super Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We come here all the time. The choices are amazing, and the portions are generous. It is a bit pricey, but still yummy. And they allow you to taste a few flavors before you need to decide.

“Soooo Goood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Salted caramel ice cream. It's one of the new monthly flavors. OMG. Soft rich mounds of vanilla generously swirled with gooey salted caramel. If you're a fan of caramel, this will roll your eyes into the back of your head. YUM! Yes it's pricey for the quantities, but it seems any local ice cream company is these days. Save it for treating yourself occasionally, and it won't hurt the wallet to much.

“Favorite ice cream place of all time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

If you are in Massachusetts period you have to go to JP Licks. It's homemade, local ice cream and everyone here is insanely loyal to it (Cold Stone went out of business in Newton Center because everyone refused to betray JP Licks). My favorite is brownie batter ice cream but all the flavors are delicious. Try an ice cream cake or a coffee or anything really. The signature cow print is all over the walls and the place is never empty. On summer nights the line is always out the door. Some people say it's overpriced, but HELLO it's JP Licks.
