Black ice cream is a thing and it looks extremely cool

If you’ll excuse the pun.

A post shared by Brian Lam (@blam) on

RAINBOW-HUED foodstuffs may be dominating the internet lately, but chefs haven’t forgotten about all us goths out here.

Morgenstern’s ice cream parlour in New York is now selling an ice cream that is as black as your soul.

Unlike some other black ice creams you might have seen, this one isn’t black because of food dye, or sesame seeds, or (blech) squid ink – it’s made of coconut ash, or “the charred and processed remains of a coconut shell”.

Coconut Ash life 2016. ALL NEW MENU on its way. Stay tuned.

Nick Morgenstern, owner of the parlour, explained to Mic that it’s a form of the increasingly popular ingredient activated charcoal.

The ash gives the ice cream a rich coconut flavour and turns it deep black – it looks wrong, but it sounds so damn right.
