Black Charcoal Ice Cream

This All-Black Charcoal Ice Cream Matches Your Cold, Dark Soul

It's time to take your taste buds on a walk to the dark side, fellow foodies. Though we may have spent our childhood days solely noshing on that rainbow-colored Superman ice cream, our tastes have refined since then, and charcoal ice cream is now the perfect fit for our dark souls.

In the past year or so, activated charcoal has been popping up in the form of fancy pressed juices that claim detoxifying benefits, with many sipping on the trendy beverage as a way to banish hangovers and prevent gas. Though the validity of these claims hasn't exactly been proven through scientific studies yet, the charcoal trend doesn't seem to be leaving the food scene just yet, as it has now started popping up as a hot (or should I say cold) ice cream flavor of choice. Potential health benefits aside, there's no denying that this this jet-black sweet treat is beyond Instagram-worthy.

Although we're a little unsure about the taste (is it comparable to licking a chimney?) and the aftermath (will it leave my teeth in desperate need of whitening toothpaste?), the throngs of people behind the charcoal ice cream trend seem to be growing by the day. In case you needed any more proof that black is the new black, the tantalizing photos ahead should convince you to hop on the charcoal bandwagon and give it a try for yourself. If you're not near any of the following locations, you can even make charcoal ice cream at home.
