J.P. Licks, Boston MA

This one's for those "cookies and cream" ice cream lovers out there.
One of my favorite sweet foods are OREO cookies and anything to do with them..blizzards, shakes, mud pie, or even ice cream sandwiches...I know, ice cream sandwiches have nothing to do with Oreo's, but it's pretty close. Whenever I order ice cream, I kind of obsess about the cookies to cream ratio. There's nothing worse than powdery Oreo dust in your ice cream. Yes, I'm that annoying guy in line at McDees coaching the person working the blizzard station, begging them not to pulverize the cookies. I want bold, huge chunks of Oreos protruding out my ice cream. I want the distinct contrast between silky, rich ice cream and firm, moist cookie pieces. An equal balance. Y'all...I found my mecca of cookies and cream ice cream.

I don't know how they do it. Let me first warn you that the Oreo pieces were not even that big. It was the flavor. It tasted like everything I wanted it to be. The perfect balance all in one taste. Yummy cookies and rich, dark ice cream blended to perfection. I could not get enough. So I went back and had it again. And I'm sure ill have it once more before I leave Boston. I received an ice cream maker as a gift last year and I look forward to experimenting once I get home. I'm sure it's pretty simple, It's probably Oreos, add more Oreos and then add more Oreos....I'll let you know!
Anyways, here it new favorite "cookies and cream" ice cream: J.P. Lick's Oreo Ice Cream.
Not a cookies and cream fan? Check out their other flavors.
So...what's your flavor?


  1. Cookies and Cream is not even my favorite flavor, and I understand the joy and sanctity of the J.P. Licks!

    My favorite J.P. Licks flavor is probably Cow Tracks, because I love chocolate and I love peanut butter.

  2. I personally like their Oreo soft serve... delicious!! :)

  3. I came to Boston to see the show and made a point of going here at your recommendation. It was everything you said it was! Thanks for telling me about it!

  4. Looking at the menu, I'd go with coconut almond chip. If it isn't made with chocolate ice cream then I'd have to add the hot fudge as a topping. mmmmmmmm......

  5. Great job, Andy!
    I was salivating watching you eat those donuts.
