BOSTON (WHDH) - Local ice cream chain J.P. Licks is ushering in the new school year with an extra caffeine kick by bringing two Red Bull-flavored sweet treats into the mix.

The first, Red Bull Yellow Edition Ice Cream, is a gluten-free ice cream that taste like tropical fruits, while the Blue Edition Sorbet is gluten- and dairy-free and taste like blueberries. Both varieties are caffeinated and will be available starting Thursday in all 17 J.P. Licks locations.

“With students returning to Boston, now feels like the perfect time to partner with Red Bull again after working together in Fall of 2021,” says J.P. Licks founder and owner Vincent Petryk. “We enjoyed their Special Edition flavors so much we couldn’t choose just one, so we’ve made two new flavors, the Blue Edition Sorbet and a Yellow Edition Ice Cream. Both are perfect treats as students and teachers alike start their semesters. J.P. Licks and Red Bull are here to help people settle into new routines!”

The ice cream shop will be offering samples of the flavors on Friday, September 2 in front of the J.P. Licks Harvard Square store in Cambridge from 2:00-2:45 p.m. and the Boylston Street store from 3:15-4:00 p.m. Samples of the flavors will also be available on Friday, September 16 in front of the Assembly Row Somerville store from 2:00-2:45 p.m. and the Davis Square store from 3:15-4:00 p.m.
