  • Culture Cream: The Probiotic Ice Cream Shack in Hudson

    Performance artist. Fermenter. World traveller. Spice collector. Ice cream maker.

Call it small town kismet or keeping an open mind, but one day, cruising up Warren Street, Melo eyed the shabby storage shack behind Backbar and new it could be her location. A whirlwind vision and a wild paint job later, she opened up shop in July, amidst a social distancing-inspired gravel patio, lush with plants and picnic tables. "It has this tropical, beachy vibe," Melo says, which her neon shack and exotic ice creams only elevate.
