J.P. Licks’ “Thin Mint” Flavor Supported Local Girl Scouts

The flavor, which was featured throughout March, rocketed to a best seller; created many new ice cream fans, AND supported the local Girl Scouts.

The award winning homemade ice cream café worked with Girl Scouts from Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mattapan and Dorchester and purchased 20 cases of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies.
At least four boxes of Thin Mint cookies went into every batch of J.P. Licks’ Thin Mint ice cream, which was produced on-site in the Jamaica Plain store.

According to Girls Scouts of the USA Cookie Report, Thin Mint cookies and all the other varieties of Girl Scout cookies are Kosher and contain zero trans fats. Best of all, proceeds from Girl Scout cookie sales benefit girls in the community where they are sold.

"We offered the Thin Mint ice cream at all of our stores and it quickly became a best seller among our Top 10 flavors. All of our products are Kosher and luckily, so are the Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies so we’re able to use them in our recipe. We’re definitely going to bring this flavor back next year and look forward to working with local Girl Scouts again," noted Kim Sawchuk, Director of Operations at J.P. Licks.
