Krispy Kreme ice cream is finally a thing

Some moments will forever be etched in the minds of Americans. In these moments, anyone alive to experience the event remembers what they were doing and where they were. I’m talking about Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone’s safe or the series finale of Family matters. There’s a litany of timeless events that have left indelible marks on the fabric of American life, like the first man to walk a NordicTrack or the attempted assassination of Mr. Burns. However, no moment before or after will have the potential to compare to Krispy Kreme unveiling soft serve ice cream machines.

According to, Krispy Kreme will be adding soft serve ice cream to its delicious menu of addictive donuts. The ice cream will initially be available in ten cities, but the franchise plans to expand the rollout to more in the future. If the ice cream carries the same formula as their donuts, no one will be safe from its addictive properties.

Starting today, in ten markets, Krispy Kreme is launching the Original Frozen Soft Serve Ice Cream which, true to its name, is made “with ingredients from Krispy Kreme’s exclusive, secret recipe for Original Glazed Donuts, including its signature frosting flavor, as well as real whole milk,” according to the company.

“The introduction of the original Glazed Soft Serve ice cream is a big day for Krispy Kreme and our fans,” said Dave Skena, brand marketing manager. “We are confident that their love of ice cream and for Krispy Kreme will reach a whole new level after experiencing these deliciously unique shakes, cones and cups. We are excited to begin our rollout on the first day of summer.”

Yes, customers can grab this soft serve straight, but Krispy Kreme also serves it with toppings and mixing it into a range of shakes. Waffle cones (which are also made with the donut mix and Krispy Kreme frosting flavor) and cups can be purchased as plain original ice cream (which is still topped with crispy original glazed donuts), sprinkled with strawberry glazed or chocolate glazed.

Krispy Kreme says the top ten markets to score soft serve are Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston-Salem in North Carolina; Greenville, South Carolina; Norfolk and Newport News, Virginia; Charleston, West Virginia; Nashville and the Tri-Cities area in Tennessee; and San Antonio, TX.

After that, the software service will expand to Mobile and Southwest Alabama; Tampa, St. Petersburg and Pensacola, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; Branson, Missouri; and Wichita, Kansas – although no specific date was given.
