As our group explored Beacon Hill we found an ice cream shop on Charles Street. This shop was called J.P Licks and a sign on its door said that it had the best hot chocolate. Because the three of us are chocolate enthusiasts we went into the store to try this hot chocolate. While browsing the selection that J.P. Licks has to offer, there was one thing in particular that caught my attention: frozen hot chocolate. I immediately decided that this was what I would get. My fellow group members agreed and we ordered three frozen hot chocolates. Little did we know that frozen hot chocolate is not a beverage. We expected a hot chocolate beverage but frozen instead of hot. Instead of this we were given ice cream. This was not ice cream that tasted like hot chocolate though. As we sat and ate this ice cream we realized that we were eating something spicy. Our throats started to hurt and we all looked at each other in confusion. Why would hot chocolate be spicy? Is wasn't until later that we realized what "frozen hot chocolate" really meant. J.P. Licks was referring to another definition of the word "hot." While this was definitely a weird experience and an even weirder ice cream I would definitely suggest checking this place out. J.P. Licks has some great selections of ice cream, yogurt, and coffee and even has ice cream for dogs!
