Begone, Rainbows: It’s the Goth Latte’s Time to Shine

If the Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino left you cringing over its rainbow sweetness, take note: Goth ice cream has a coffee counterpart to light up your little black heart. Say hello to the weirdly wonderful, dark AF goth latté. Though it may look like a regular ol’ cuppa at first, this guy has a seriously shaded twist thanks to one ingredient in particular: activated charcoal.

Showing up on menus in cafés across the UK, Australia, and Japan, this dark-as-night drink is gaining popularity at such high speeds that even the biggest skeptics just might be willing to give it a go.

As with goth ice cream, the activated charcoal found within not only gives this mixture its incredibly dark color, but it simultaneously helps rid the bod of nasty toxins. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us!

A little added coffee art on top makes for an Instagram-worthy cup, indeed: Looks like even the blackest of hearts now have something to smile about.
