Black-Lemonade-2

Thought the black food trend that gained all that traction after the Burger King Black Burger and their Halloween Whopper was gone? Wrong. Black ice cream, pizza crust, black lemonade and plenty of other foods as dark as your soul are here in a big way, and they’re probably not going anywhere in the near future. The secret to those deliciously dark treats usually boils down to the addition of activated charcoal (aka activated carbon) for its incredibly dark coloring. When it comes to black lemonade, it’s a sure fire way to freak out your friends or spice up a party. Check out the full recipe Instructables, but it’s basically as easy as adding activated charcoal to your lemonade. The effect is certainly cool, but keep in mind that it can interfere with some medicines, so make sure you educate yourself and your guests before you put out an all black everything spread. 

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
