The Inventing Room is all about magic created around desserts. This Willy Wonka-inspired small shop led by chef Ian Kleinman has always been about bringing experiences that changes the perception of a dessert through temperature, color, texture, and flavor. Recently, he added a new trick to his shop: The miracle fruit.

"Flavor tripping" is the term used to describe what happens when the miracle fruit is used, dissolved on your tongue the miracle fruit tricks your mind into thinking anything bitter or sour is sweet. That's right: simple lemons seem like sweet lemonade and oranges taste like a sweet orange candy.

The miracle fruit  was introduced at the 20020 Lawrence dessert emporium a week ago. A miracle fruit tasting will cost $10 which includes this simple instructional card along with the miracle fruit, citrus, jellies, yogurts and fruit to highlight the properties of the miracle fruit.

Outside of messing with your brain, The Inventing Room is gearing up to celebrate its one-year anniversary on Halloween. Anyone who stops by in a costume on Halloween from 2 to 9 p.m. will get a free sundae.
