Activated Charcoal Is the New Black

By  - 2 years ago

Activated charcoal is a potent detoxifying agent known for cleansing your body from toxins and harmful chemicals. It traps these substances and flushes them out to prevent your body from consuming them. It also helps prevent gas and bloating. Not only does it make food look more interesting, it is actually good for you too. We found seven places in the metro serving activated charcoal-infused food that will make you go black and never go back.


7. BLK 513

BLK 513’s Dark Skim Cup was the first to put activated charcoal on the map. This healthy frozen yoghurt comes in a cup or cone with your choice of crunch, fruit toppings, and unique syrup selections like Milk Jam, Espresso Latte, and Spiced Cookie Caramel.


6. 80 Queens

80 Queens, the same people behind BLK 513, jumps on the charcoal-infused trend with their Black Stack, which is nachos paired with your choice of sauce and garnish. Their sauces come in 10 flavors, some of which are Truffle Sorcery, Sriracha Cheese, and Bleu Risk.


5. Lawson

Finally an ice cream that matches my soul. โšซ๏ธ

Green tea ice cream is old news. Weโ€™re all about dark desserts now. Lawson offers soft serve ice cream in Bamboo Charcoal, but they also have it in Cherry Blossom if youโ€™re up for anything Japanese.


4. Crazy Lemons

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and add some activated charcoal. At least that’s what Crazy Lemons thinks.


3. Go Black

What better way to juice detox than with a potent detoxifier? Go Black offers 3-day and 5-day plans with their charcoal-infused drinks: Honey Lemon, Minty Mansi, and Lavender Tea. They also sell pure activated charcoal powder if you want to DIY at home.


2. Scoutโ€™s Honor

Looking for something to dunk your cookies in? How about a pre-bedtime drink? Scout’s Honor now serves their Craft Milk in bamboo charcoal flavor.


1. Made Nice Supper Club

Made Nice Supper Club’s new menu has two dishes on the dark side: the foie gras tartine with charcoal-infused crust, and their charcoalย macaron on steroids.
