The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let FWx do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Cotton Candy Ice Cream Cone: The newest and most ethereal induction into the hybrid dessert club is the cotton candy cone at Brooklyn’s OddFellows Ice Cream Co. It is made with s’mores ice cream scooped into a chocolate-dipped sugar cone, then swirled into a cloud of cotton candy. [Grub Street]
Éclair Art: To celebrate éclair week (no one told us it was éclair week, either), Fauchon, a luxury Parisian food company, is offering artful éclairs at a pop-up café in Tokyo. One of the éclairs on offer is frosted with a stunning rendition of classic woodblock art. Though it is way too pretty to eat, those who have tried the custard-filled confection have great things to say. [Rocket News 24]
