Thanks to the hybrid-food fad, there's no shortage of unique Frankenfood creations out there.

If you're starting to get sick of those passé cronuts and egg waffle tacos, you'll be glad to know there's another innovative snack taking New York City by storm.

Behold, Raindrop Cake.

Now you're probably wondering, what the hell is Raindrop Cake exactly?

Apparently, it's a popular Japanese dessert, known there as mizu shingen mochi, with a shiny, see-through appearance that basically resembles a giant drop of rain.

This clear confection is made out of mineral water and a vegan gelatin called agar and aside from looking pretty damn cool, it reportedly contains almost no calories.

After mastering this tricky recipe, Darren Wong debuted his Raindrop Cake at New York City's Smorgasburg food market over the weekend, and now people are losing their minds over this mouthwatering snack.
