Would You Try This Cotton Candy Ice Cream Burrito? (Video)

Just when you thought you’d seen it all in the world of wacky desserts (we’re looking at you, pizza-flavored ice cream) here comes another bizarre dessert creation that will blow your mind. 

Behold, the Cotton Candy Burrito. 

Sugar Sugar, a dessert shop in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, has meshed two foods you would have never dreamt would be joined together: cotton candy and burritos. 

I mean seriously, what’s next? Jellybean sushi? Fruit Roll-Ups pasta? 

Honestly, when I first heard about it, I couldn’t even begin to imagine how this thing is made, much less what it tastes like. I mean, could you? 

If your imagination fails you in regards to this strange creation, let me illuminate you.  

Just like a regular burrito, the Cotton Candy Burrito involves a tortilla stuffed with filling. 

But we’re not talking about a regular old flour tortilla. The “tortilla” used in the Cotton Candy Burrito is made from a flattened mound of cotton candy, according to Foodbeast. And the stuffing of this special burrito is not just regular old rice and beans (ew, could you imagine that wrapped in cotton candy?) 

Wrapped snuggly inside this cotton candy tortilla is ice cream. That’s right. And not just any normal flavors either … The ice cream flavors include Bubble Gum, Birthday Cake and, of course, Cotton Candy.

Oh, and the ice cream scoops are topped with sugary purple “unicorn dust” before they’re rolled up in the cotton candy tortilla. Just to add that extra sugary, crunchy pizzazz, in case a cotton candy ice cream burrito doesn’t have enough of that already.

If you don’t believe me, just check out this video posted by Food Beast:

Luckily, the ice cream’s moisture doesn’t dissolve the cotton candy, according to Foodbeast. We definitely wouldn’t want the cotton candy melting away in our hands, since then we’d just be left holding a scoop of ice cream, which is no fun. 

I can imagine it’d be good if the cotton candy were a little crunchy, but still, it’s definitely an interesting combination of textures. 

If you’ve got adventurous taste buds, this is definitely something you’ll want to try.

So, would you?
