I’ve seen the unicorn and rainbow movement come and go. Frankly, once fast food chains like Starbucks introduced their take on unicorn items, we knew the trend had jumped the multi-colored shark.
Washed trend or not, one place is standing by that magical look.
Dagwood’s Pizza, located in Santa Monica, CA, introduced a vibrant glitter-topped pizza a few years back at the height of the unicorn rainbow food trend.
Call the Magical AF Pizza, the menu item starts as a simple cheese pizza before undergoing a multi-colored metamorphosis into something resembling what a unicorn yakked up after a night of heavy drinking.
On its initial run, the item was more or less just a novelty specialty that the pizzeria offered. The restaurant tells us, however, the Magical AF Pizza was blasted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, leading to a resurgence in popularity and its return to the menu.
We went down to Santa Monica to check out that pizza for ourselves. Was it actually a tasty pizza? Or just another novelty trend item that has us rolling our eyes?
Our man on the ground Reach got a hold of the glitter pizza and had this to say:
“It’s eye-catching and eye-rolling all at once. But at least it doesn’t taste gross like other unicorn-themed food.”
When it comes to these Instagram-friendly items, that’s all you can ask for, really. As long as it has the flavor to back up the off-the-wall silliness of the aesthetic, there really isn’t much you can complain about.
