Taiyaki (literally "baked sea bream") looks like it may fall into that category, although the growing popularity of the fish-shaped cakes around the world may say otherwise. While traditionally filled with red bean paste, many shops in Japan offer varieties filled with chocolate, custard, and thanks to trends around the globe--ice cream! While not the only shop in the world stuffing taiyaki mouths with sweets, New York City's Taiyaki NYC has gained a lot of popularity for their variety of ice cream-filled taiyaki, including a recent special of colorful unicorn ice cream taiyaki.

The Taiyaki contain custard and other fillings in their tails, while scoops of soft serve ice cream erupt from the mouth. While ice cream Taiyaki has been trending both in and out of Japan, Taiyaki NYC is taking things a step further with unicorn ice cream varieties.

Recently at Yokohama's Kurikoan, a blue chocolate mint taiyaki made somme news. うしくろさん(@usiqlo)がシェアした投稿 - 2017 6月 4 8:00午後 PDT And of course, there was that time Japan turned Magikarp into a taiyaki!
