Black color is becoming a trend.. but not in fashion. Black-colored food is the new craze!

Instagram users are in love with the dark side of foods. It is obvious in all kinds of tasteful delights; from burgers and pasta to macaroons and ice cream.

Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream in New York City launched a new flavor. 'Coconut Ash' ice cream has become viral, even though most people used to doubt its existence. It is real, people!

Burger King's limited-edition Halloween Whopper featured a pitch black bun. The black burger was introduced in Japan at first and now it is becoming a trend in many restaurants world-wide.

The Japanese version came with black cheese made with bamboo charcoal and a similarly hued sauce made with squid ink while the UK version came with a flame-grilled beef patty, topped with melted American cheese, BBQ sauce, ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions.

It is time to forget rainbow-colored food and embrace a darker era.

Squid ink and charcoal are the main ingredients used in order to create this color. Squid ink has been used in pasta for many years, but is now moving into other recipes, too.

Melbourne bakery Lune is making a squid ink croissant and a restaurant in France makes puffed rice crackers with squid ink as an entree.

How about a mineral water which is completely black in color?
