Having the blues amidst the bad news you read online? Then swing by Paddington Central for some much-needed comfort food! The third Lick! Ice Cream store has opened this September and it could not come at a better time.

Though smaller than its Graceville and Morningside outlets, Lick! at Paddington Central will offer more ice cream flavours.

Customers may pick from 32 different kinds — that’s eight more than the other stores! — including vegan and gluten-free varieties, alongside classic popular choices like Chock chip cookies and cream, Macadamia praline, condensed milk and the OMG Strawberry.

Batches of Lick! Ice Cream are handcrafted and prepared with fresh, non-artificial ingredients at their Cooper Plains kitchen. However, they’ll soon be moving to a bigger headquarters at Seventeen Mile Rocks. 

Co-owner Kim Douglas said that the kitchen expansion is a necessary step as they plan to open more stores in Brisbane and grow the brand. They are also open to supplying retailers and restaurants.

“We have over 900 flavours of ice cream, sorbet and gelato on our database and are adding new ones each week. We currently stock Lick at a number of Independent Supermarkets, delicatessens and fruit and vegetable shops throughout South East Queensland.”

EKKA regulars are familiar with Lick! and its sought-after strawberry sundae. In August, the ice cream shop opened pop-up stores across Brisbane to raise funds for The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation. Lick! sold over 90,000 strawberry sundaes for this initiative.
