Meet the Mayor: J.P. Licks (Brigham Circle)

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

J.P. Licks (Brigham Circle)
Craig Collins

I've heard mixed reviews of the cucumber ice cream.
I have not tried that yet. I've heard it's not the greatest, not the worst. I think their biggest flop was creamed-corn ice cream from around Thanksgiving. No one liked it, and it lasted for a week. Their red-velvet ice cream was really good, though.

What's your favorite normal flavor, and your favorite weird flavor here?
Normal flavor ... probably pistachio. My favorite weird flavor has got to be the strawberry rhubarb, which they've got going right now. Pistachio is a classic. I've been eating it since I was 10 years old.

10-year-olds always refuse to eat green things.
I wasn't that 10-year-old. My parents and grandparents had gardens for as long as I remember. I was that kid who picked a cucumber and ate it.

Hmm. Given your expertise, what other vegetable ice cream flavors should J.P. Licks try out?
I'd be interested to see zucchini or some sort of squash. For example, butternut squash, acorn squash, or summer squash. Squashes that go well with casseroles would probably go very well with ice cream.

    mayor collins,

    if you enjoy the subtle flavor of squash, unseasoned, then you should definitely try the cucumber for yourself on a hot summer's's one of the most light and refreshing ice creams you may ever taste. an actual squash flavor we do make in the autumn is our pumpkin.

    take care,

    vince, founder j.p. licks
