Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Red Raspberry Lactose Free

J. P. Licks is a small chain of seven ice cream stores in the Boston area. They boast that they are "Kosher certified and proudly meets all the high quality standards pertaining to ingredients, production and store cleanliness."

And they're having a February promotion involving night delivery that you can read all about in their press release. Best of all, take a gander of what they're doing for the rest of this month:

Special February flavors include Coconut Crème, Chocolate Orange, Snickers, Cheesecake Brownie, Organic/Fair trade Infused Coffee, Mango Sorbet, Lime Sherbet, Red Raspberry Lactose Free, Black Raspberry Chip Low Fat Yogurt.

Cool. Red Raspberry Lactose Free.

Wait a minute. Red Raspberry Lactose Free what? Ice cream? Maybe. But it isn't listed with the ice creams, but after the sorbet and the sherbet. Red Raspberry Sorbet? But all sorbet should be lactose free. It would only be special if it were ice cream...

What? I should just go to the website and look there? You mean you think they would change the website from January specials to February specials just because it is now February 1? Oh, you crazy dreamer, you.

Can anyone from Boston help me out? I'm so confused...
