J.P. Licks, Boston’s favorite ice cream shop, and Grillo’s Pickles, the fresh all natural refrigerated pickle brand, are thrilled to announce a new dill-icious collaboration that combines the flavors of Grillo’s beloved homemade pickles with J.P. Licks sweet cream ice cream. The partnership marks the first collaboration between the two Massachusetts based companies.
Pickle Ice Cream will be available in all 17 J.P. Licks store locations on National Pickle Day; Monday, November 14. Made with fresh Grillo’s Pickles, this ice cream is sweet and savory with a hint of dill and a bite of vinegar in every spoonful; it tastes just like a classic dill pickle.
“This flavor combination might leave some of our customers scratching their heads, and we love that,” says J.P. Licks founder and owner Vincent Petryk. “Our sweet cream ice cream is such a surprising and sharp combination with the delicious homemade flavors of local Grillo’s Pickles – we can’t wait to hear what people think about this new ice cream flavor.”
“We are excited to be partnering alongside another Boston-based brand with a strong local following,” says Eddie Andre, Grillo’s Director of Brand Experience. “We wanted to bring something unique and unexpected to Boston foodies this National Pickle Day and know this limited-edition pickle inspired flavor will have everyone’s taste buds screaming for (pickle) ice cream.”
J.P. Licks now boasts 17 store locations throughout Massachusetts and has remained homemade and locally owned and operated. The company employs up to 375 employees in the summer months and ships coffee (which is roasted in-house at the Jamaica Plain store) and merchandise anywhere in the continental USA. Since opening its doors, J.P. Licks has been committed to supporting each store’s community by donating in-kind donations to small, local organizations. For people who want freshness, Grillo’s is the pickle company that is changing the game. That’s because Grillo’s uses only clean, garden-fresh ingredients to make deliciously simple foods that deliver all the crunchy, tangy, satisfying flavor you’ve been searching for, with none of the junk. How do we do it? Our products are made cold, shipped cold and sold cold. So you get an incredible crunch and we never have to mess with artificial preservatives. In fact, the only thing traditional about us is our 100-year-old family recipe. The rest? It’s fresh. Grillo’s offers mouthwatering bites nationwide for sweet, spicy and sour flavor seekers, with their selection of chips, wholes and spears and Pickle de Gallo.
