Move over rainbow sherbert, there’s a new ice cream in town, and it comes in a shade that’s synonymous with sophistication: black.
The idea of devouring a scoop of jet-black ice cream seems like something out of a fairytale, but a lower Manhattan parlour has made this fantasy a dream come true. Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor of ice cream called Coconut Ash, and it’s every bit as unique as you would hope it to be.
Up to this point, the darkest sorbet shades are typically the dark brown hues of chocolate or the dark grey tones of black sesame. Coconut Ash, however, is indeed a true black that gets its bold hue from activated charcoal.
The idea of eating something made with charcoal may sound off-putting, but with the case of Coconut Ash, the taste is pretty satisfying. Customers are raving about the intense coconut flavor, and the eye-catching color makes for amazing photo-ops. The ice cream has gone viral on social media, with gorgeous shots being published daily. On your next trip to the Big Apple, stop by Morgenstern’s for a taste. The experience is sure to live up to its name.
