Pretty much the only in place in Boston that has convinced us to buy ice cream in the dead of winter, J.P. Licks is the treat that keeps customers lining up year-round. They offer seasonal specials (Wild Turkey bourbon ice cream for Thanksgiving, anyone?), as well as the iconic Red Sox helmet sundaes that always seem to run out. And they manage to crush the competition in the "Ice Cream vs. Froyo" category by being uncommonly good at both — they're doing mighty fine at the tangy probiotic yogurt game, too.
