These delectable new ice cream trends popping up on Instagram are making us scream

As we head towards summer and the temperature rises, ice cream is a staple treat to keep us cool. We’ve noticed some adorable ice cream trends popping up on Instagram from all over the world, incorporating cute animal figures and vibrant colours, such as this fab rainbow one.

We’ve had the Pokemon Go craze worldwide in recent months, so it’s probably no surprise that Pokemon ice cream has also become a trend. The North Pole Cafe in Jakarta has a host of delicious characters to enjoy, ranging from Marill to Pikachu.

It also does seasonal ice creams like Dracula at Halloween and Rudolph at Christmas. Then there are the colourful ones that are always in vogue, such as this unicorn ice cream waffle.

Kakigoori is a Japanese ice-cream trend that is all over Instagram these days. It’s a shaved-ice dish that is moulded into various colourful or dishes.
