The Taste Chase: can’t wait to meet you, Melba!

Moooooove over Dairy Queen and make room for the latest ice cream slinger on the block. Lawrenceville’s  Main Street, aka,”The Sweetest Quarter Mile Around” with an eclectic mix of restaurants, bakeries and boutique shops, has just upped its sugar quotient.

2685 Main Street, the former home of ice cream mainstay, The Purple Cow, had a make-over and is now ready to make her red carpet entrance. Joanne Canady-Brown, owner of The Gingered Peach and MercerMe’s perennial Cut Throat Cookie Exchange Judge Extrordinaire, has realized a long-held, chocolate-fudge-soaked, jimmie-covered dream birthed in her childhood: in a few days, we will all be able to see and taste the result as she excitedly introduces “Melba” to the public. Mercerme will be there with spoons at the ready and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Editor’s note: we went today, which was opening day, and it was extraordinary! We will tell you all about it tomorrow. Here’s a somewhat out of focus pic to whet your appetite. Guess who took the picture…..

Renata is the author of "The Taste Chase," MercerMe's own food review column. She's a lover of all things poetic, colorful, funny and inspiring. A native New Yorker, who grew up in Hopewell Valley and spent the better part of her adulthood back in NYC, currently finds herself in a growing love relationship with “the Valley”. Latin food, Indian saris and mehndi, French perfume, African music, Middle Eastern spices, South American jewels, Asian fabrics and anything from just about any island (maybe not Riker’s Island) are things that remind her to go out and taste the world, live passionately and always wear deodorant. The mother of one rambunctious boy and the wife of a mellow fellow, Renata tries to put her too many years of university and her film and writing talents to good use here in NJ. “I’ve spent too much time trying to fit in some where when I probably belong everywhere. That slow revelation has been freeing.”
