Goth ice cream
The coolest new trend sweeping social media this summer is black ice cream. Nicknamed ‘goth ice cream’, its jet-black colour can be achieved using coconut ash or black sesame.
Yes, you read that right – apparently it’s not just for Halloween! Disney recently started selling glow-in-thedark candyfloss at its theme parks around the world, while Black Star Pastry in Australia is now selling ‘glonuts’ (glow-inthe-dark doughnuts).
Coffee in everything but a cup
Earlier this year, we saw coffee served in an ice cream cone. Now people are putting it in avocado shells (the ‘avolatte’) and even in hollowed-out carrots. Come on, hasn’t this gone too far? !
Gin & tonic with a twist
The G&T is being given makeovers left, right and centre. We’ve seen gin & tonics with ginger, cherry tomatoes and even plankton! For more on plankton gin, read our weekly food diary at bbcgoodfood.com/content/ what-were-eating-week
