If you’re anywhere on social media you’ve likely seen this amazing soft serve ice cream from Little Damage near downtown LA is serving.

A quick Google search is hit or miss, but charcoal will latch onto birth control pills, antidepressants, heart medicine, and more. Here’s a pretty good article detailing what it can do.
While this ice cream is a cool novelty (like that damn Unicorn Frap) to have once, I don’t know if I’d have it more than once. But damn does it make for some cool pics.
