Front Porch Pops is an ice cream shop in Orange. Though selling for a mainstream audience, Erin Whitcomb masters Mexican flavors like a paletero jingling his bells while marching down Standard Street. Jamaica is properly tart; a mango-and-chile version tastes like a fruit vendor’s treasures. Whitcomb makes an orange creamsicle that sings of Orange Bang! I was skeptical of her piña colada take, but shut up once because she nailed the balance of tart and sweet in the ideal version of the cocktail. And the chocolate one finds sea salt sprinkled on it, to open up the palate.
