While the weather outside is frightful, the staff at Evansville Living had a delightful time trying the seasonal ice cream creations at Lic’s Old Fashioned Deli and Ice Cream.
Along with regular local favorites, Lic’s currently is scooping up peppermint stick ice cream, which can be served in a cup, cone, shake, or malt; peppermint sundaes, topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and nuts; and peppermint choco-cremes.
With a firm belief that ice cream tastes even better in temperatures under 50 degrees, I branched out from my comfort palette, which doesn’t typically include peppermint, and tried the choco-cremes from the Downtown Lic’s at 11 N.W. Fifth St.
The compact balls are filled with peppermint stick ice cream that bursts in your mouth with each bite and mixes perfectly with the rich chocolate coating on the outside.
While I was going back for seconds, the rest of our staff had their own positive reactions to the creamy desserts.
“I’d eat that sundae every day!” says Managing Editor Trista Lutgring. “The whipped cream, chocolate, and peanuts are perfect with that peppermint ice cream. I don’t know how Lic’s does it, but they never disappoint!”
“I was pleasantly surprised,” says Staff Writer Riley Guerzini, who tried the peppermint stick ice cream on its own. “It tasted a lot like mint ice cream.”
“The peppermint choco-cremes taste like a sunny winter’s day,” says Art Director Laura Mathis.
Don’t just take our word for it — visit Lic’s before these flavors are gone!
