Creative food trends have seemed to dominate 2017 so far, but hey, we’re not complaining. Not only do these unconventional edibles look delicious, but they make eating a memorable experience. One of the latest in unique foods is being called a waffle goth ice cream cone — a black ice cream cone that holds colorful flavors of soft serve ice cream. Available at the Los Angeles-based shop Little Damage, they’ve managed to make a childhood treat look positively spooky.
So, what makes the cone turn black? It’s not food coloring; rather, Little Damages uses activated charcoal to give it the inky appearance. So aside from its striking looks, there is some health benefit to this cone—activated charcoal is often used to absorb impurities and harmful substances in the body. But, any of the healthy aspects are probably offset with Little Damage’s inventive flavors. Mango sticky rice, beet, and unicorn tears are just a few of the soft serve varieties you can get in your cone. In addition to those flavors, they offer toppings like fruity pebbles and caramel popcorn.
With the goth cone and colorful toppings, you’ve got an Instagram-worthy dessert. Check out how some people are adorning their black ice cream cone, below. And speaking of goth, have you ever seen a chicken that’s black to the bone?
