People are obsessed with weird drinks and food creations. It's like the new craze. If there's a popular food -- chances are there's a unicorn version of it. Favorite Frappe? Yep, there's a unicorn version. Cup cakes? Yep. What about bagels? Yep there's a multi colored nightmare version of those too. So when we heard there was going to be a glitter coffee, we can't say we were surprised. I mean it seems like restaurants are trying anything to keep people coming through the doors, and sometimes that means coming up with ridiculously crazy concoctions guaranteed to get people ( and keep people) talking about them. Not to mention glitter is especially in. Seems the more sparkles something has, the more likely it is to be popular.
Well this coffee shop is trying to go for just that. A chain of coffee shops in India is offering edible glitter cappuccinos, and the sparkly concoctions are currently going viral because OF COURSE THEY ARE. I mean, look at this loveliness, courtesy of Mumbai chain Coffee By Di Bella:
The coffee shop's holographic glitter drink is called the diamond cappuccino, and the shop also offers a gold cappuccino that's similarly stunning.
And here's a (rather mesmerizing) video showing how the drinks are made.
If you want to make the cappuccinos at home, it looks relatively straightforward—just remember to use edible glitter, not craft glitter. As Bustle points out, you can usually tell the difference because edible glitter—which you can find at kitchen supply stores—will contain a list of ingredients on the label (here's one that's FDA approved). Please note that "non-toxic" is not the same thing as edible.
Which isn't to say that some people don't have other concerns.
