Linares has created an ice cream that changes color as it's eaten. The fruity confection, called Xamaleón -- as in, chameleon -- starts out as a periwinkle blue and gradually morphs into hues of purple and pink.

t; Apparently, it's all about temperature -- heat from saliva and slight changes in the surrounding air.
Though the change may seem unusual, you've probably observed something similar with other edibles -- without realizing it.
"Any food will change color if it changes temperature, you encapsulate it or it oxidizes," Linares told Spanish-language gastronomy website Cocinatis.
In a video posted on Linares' IceXperience Facebook page, a sample cone can be seen changing from purple to pink -- similar to the way chameleons change colors to adapt to their surroundings.
