New Jersey Ice Cream, Day 2: The Bent Spoon, Princeton, NJ

The Bent Spoon in Princeton, New Jersey, is a small shop in the quaint Palmer Square shopping district near Princeton University.

While most of the ice cream shops I visited in New Jersey had standard flavors, The Bent Spoon was one of the few with playful concoctions like lavender mascarpone, strawberry chamomile or Jersey sweet corn.  The owners, Gabrielle Carbone and Matthew Errico, use a lot of local ingredients, especially from area farms.

On our visit, we tried a few flavors, our favorite being the blueberry mascarpone with its creamy consistency and fresh flavor.
