The Milk Train cafe in London has created this new offering that consists of a soft serve ice cream cone surrounded by a cloud of cotton candy – making it look as if the dessert is blasting off on a mission to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The treat is available in a variety of different flavors, including vanilla, matcha and hojicha, which is a mild Japanese green tea. The bed of cotton candy can also serve as a platform for toppings such as cookies, popcorn and Japanese candy. The item is reportedly available for £4.95 (or about $6.50). Check out more pics below.

The events in Orlando have resonated all over the world and Pride celebrations reflect that. Rainbow flags and colors have been showing up all over the place in solidarity.
In honor of London Pride, Skittles decided their rainbow needed to take a back seat.
Sometimes brands get it right. As you’ll see in the video below, this was a sweet gesture in more ways than one. [click to continue…]
Vat19 took piñata smashing to the next level by perching one atop a flying drone. With blindfolds in position, they then set about trying to knock the giant gummi bear-shaped vessel out of the sky and gain possession of its hoard of cereal marshmallows.
As you’ll see in the video below, there were quite a few entirely graceless attempts before impact was finally achieved. Needless to say, drone lovers will want to turn away. [click to continue…]
Florida-based candy shop Public Displays of Confection uses a restored 19th century fruit drop roller to make a “Nectar Drop” candy, which is described as tasting like pound cake or almonds.
The shop recently demonstrated how the device works and, in the process, revealed why lemon drops and cough drops are called “drops”. As you’ll see in the video below, the process involves rare rollers, hand cranking and an amazingly simple separation method. [click to continue…]
The Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver has taken many forms, but none have been edible.
Behold Sonic 2.0.
Modeled on the Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, this edible option measures 6.5″ long, and contains a pretzel stick wrapped in caramel and covered in chocolate. Think Twix, but with pretzel instead of cookie, and Sonic Screwdriver instead of stick thing.
They’re $15 from The Truffle Cottage, who also make a selection of other Whovian treats from cookies and creme Daleks to TARDIS-shaped truffles. Yum yum!
So the question is… Who’s ready for dessert?

Ferrara Candy Company has teamed up with 7-Eleven to create Trolli Sour Brite Weird Beards, which are essentially sour gummies shaped like pro basketball player James Harden’s bearded head.
The offerings are available in red/yellow, pink/blue, and orange/green, but are only on sale until June 30th, coinciding with the national basketball playoffs. For it all to make (some) sense, we’ll just have to pretend that the Houston Rockets haven’t already been knocked out of contention.

Since gummy bears are apparently conspiring to take over the world, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided that they needed to be dealt with. However, instead of handling the job by eating them, they were placed in a hydraulic press.
Even the angry and dangerous giant gummy was taken out, and their destruction was complete – although the bears’ nimble gumminess did help them attempt an oozing escape.
