Are you over all the unicorn, rainbow, and crazy technicolored edibles? Meet the food world’s angry goth cousin: activated charcoal. The antidote to all things glittery and mythical creature-like.
This trending toxin-binder (some claim that is has a healthy “detox effect”) has been spreading on social media like wildfire, as more and more foods and drinks are crossing over to the dark side. Now activated charcoal is being used in everything from ice cream and hamburger buns to pressed juices and frothy lattes.
People are obsessed with posting pitch-black finds on their pages, but while this weird craze may be visually striking, it can leave your mouth temporarily zombie-like (tip: you might want to steer clear if you’re on a first date or in the office).
It’s a dark world out there, friends.
