New flavor alert! The month isn’t even over but JP Licks has already unveiled a few new flavors. Two of them are part of a promotion that the store is doing with Wicked, the musical: Elphie Green, basically a mint chocolate chip, and Glinda’s Strawberry Blonde, just strawberry. The other two, very festively so, are Rosh Hashanah flavors: Noodle Kugel and Blackberry Manischewitz sorbet. I was a little hesitant to try the sorbet, but Noodle Kugel ice cream!! In my last JP Licks post I proclaimed my love for ice cream flavors that resemble other desserts, so I was definitely excited to try this one. I paired it with Oreo, by the way, a somewhat impulsive decision but one I did not regret.
They hit the nail on the head with this one. For starters, there are actual egg noodles in the ice cream, which add a unique textural note not often seen in ice cream. They are chewy and toothsome, but tender. The flavor is a rich mixture of vanilla and cinnamon, but more importantly, it really tastes like a baked eggy custard. It is delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I hope they continue with the Jewish holiday inspired flavors. I’m dreaming of chocolate babka and latke with applesauce.
