Goth Food Is Still a Thing

Despite all logic, it seems “goth food” is here to stay, taking a spot among 2018’s top ten anticipated food trends. If you follow anyone even moderately prone to documenting their meals, you’ve likely already come across it in some form, but to catch you up: there’s dozens of ingredients that can be used to darken food, from activated charcoal to black sesame, squid ink, mushrooms, black rice, figs, or black garlic. Still, there’s only one appropriate reaction to encountering such a menu item: order it, document it with your camera on flash (everyone else can deal, whatever), and tag it #gothfood.
