Cosmopolitan reports that New York City restaurant Industry Kitchen has invented what they're calling a "Unicorn Pizza." Officially dubbed the Pop Candy Land Pizza, it's made with a rainbow dough and topped with polychrome vanilla icing, sprinkles, Pop Rocks, and an extravagant puff of pink and blue cotton candy.
While I'm not sure if this thing has more sugar than the Unicorn Frappuccino, you can tell right off the bat it's a sweetness overload and purely meant for Instagram. And honestly, that wasn't what the unicorn food trend was all about when it first began.
The original unicorn latte that launched thousands of imitators across different foods was actually a health beverage that got its vibrant hue from a variety of natural colors. It wasn't exorbitant, but it was beautiful to look at while also cleansing your body and tasting delicious at the same time.
This pizza just is layer after layer of sugar, though, and I can already picture the cloying sweetness of all of its elements sticking with me for hours after just one bite.
That's not what the original makers of unicorn food intended, and this is pizza is further proof that THE GIMMICK IS DEAD.
If you're down to try it, by all means, be my guest. I'm just praying that we'll all be so done with unicorn food that these abominable iterations stop showing up.
