J.P. Licks, a coffee and treats chain in Boston, MA, will now offer a complete vegan menu, starting with coconut-based ice cream in flavors such as chocolate, pineapple, and coconut-almond lace. The ice cream shop offered free samples of the new coconut concoctions to customers on March 6, and will unveil a hemp-based line in April and soy flavors in June. All of the non-dairy offerings will be gluten-free, kosher, and sweetened with agave or brown rice syrup. With 10 locations throughout the Boston area, the J.P. Licks company, which has been around for 30 years, has been working on creating vegan versions for about 25 years, perfecting and taste testing the recipes until the recent debut.
