Made with liquor, J.P. Lick’s Wild Turkey bourbon ice cream will kick off Thanksgiving in a whole new way!

Not enough time to bake dessert? Forget the pie, pick up a quart of J.P. Lick’s Pumpkin ice cream, made with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and eggs. Or, go for a gallon of Cranberry Cheesecake Chip, which is a heavenly mix of cranberries, cheesecake, white chocolate chips and graham crackers.

Carrot Cake is back! J.P. Licks shreds carrots, soaks them with brown sugar and then adds them to the ice cream along with raisins, walnuts and a bit of cinnamon.

A foolproof and timeless favorite, Grapenut Raisin is made from a yummy sweet cream base mixed with grapenuts, raisins, and malt powder.

Turtle is a candy lover’s delight. Made from chocolate ice cream with caramel and big cashew chunks, this ice cream tastes just like the cluster candies.

Looking to save a few calories? Try Cranberry Orange Sorbet, which has the crisp tartness of cranberries mixed with oranges or Pomegranate Sorbet, which was a big hit last year and contains a blend of pomegranate juices. Or, try the Oreo Low Fat Hard Yogurt, which tastes just like the rich ice cream (so it’s hard to tell the difference) but is made into a hard yogurt.

Also available is Lactose Free French Vanilla, which has a lactose free base with egg yolks to make for an ultra creamy French vanilla.

“We really have a lot of fun creating new flavors in the test kitchen. The inspiration for many of these flavors comes from so many sources, whether it’s grandmother’s special cookie recipe or holiday foods and beverages – we put a whole new spin on ice cream,” said Vince Petryk, founder and owner of J.P. Lick’s.

Kosher certified, J.P. Licks proudly meets all the high quality standards pertaining to ingredients, production and store cleanliness.
