The Red Sox kick off their 2009 season on Monday, April 6. In celebration of the return of baseball to the hub, local ice cream chain J.P.Licks is offering cones for a dollar all day long at all eight of their locations. They began cross-promoting baseball and ice cream with the introduction of the flavor Cherry Garciaparra back in the dark ages.
That flavor has been since changed to Cherry Ortiz, and J.P. Licks is rolling out an entire line in celebration of various current Sox stars. Flavors include: Rice DICE Kream, Green Monster Tea, One Sweet World Series, Peanut Beckett and Jelly, Very Berry Ellsbury Lowfat Yogurt, and Pedroia’s Passion Fruit Sorbet.
