It’s officially summer — and Krispy Kreme is kicking it off with: Krispy Kreme doughnut-flavored ice cream now.

On Tuesday, June 21, the iconic doughnut chain is introducing Original Glazed Soft Serve ice cream — evoking the inimitable flavors of its classic doughnuts — in 10 U.S. markets and will roll it out to more markets soon.

Available in shakes, cones and cups, the new ice cream line is “made with ingredients from Krispy Kreme’s proprietary and secret Original Glazed Doughnut recipe, including its iconic glaze flavor, as well as real whole milk,” according to the brand.

You can choose from seven different shake flavors — all “hand-spun and flavored like Krispy Kreme’s fan-favorite doughnuts:” Original Glazed, Strawberry Iced Sprinkled, Chocolate Iced, Lemon Filled, Cookies & KREME, Birthday Batter and Coffee & KREME.

Or you can order Original Glazed Soft Serve ice cream — which comes in three different flavors (Original Glazed, Strawberry Iced Sprinkled and Chocolate Iced) — in a cup or waffle cone. And the waffle cones aren’t just any waffle cones: They are “handmade with Krispy Kreme’s proprietary doughnut mix and Original Glaze flavor,” the chain says.

The array of toppings and inclusions on offer are also Krispy Kreme specific; some are made from dehydrated Original Glazed doughnuts.

“The introduction of Original Glazed Soft Serve Ice Cream is a big day for Krispy Kreme and our fans,” Dave Skena, the doughnut chain’s chief marketing officer, said in a news release. “Our fans love Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and they also love rich, creamy ice cream. We’re confident their love of ice cream and for Krispy Kreme is going to go to an entirely new level after they experience these deliciously unique shakes, cones and cups. We’re thrilled to begin our rollout on the first day of summer.”

Krispy Kreme’s new line of Original Glazed Soft Service shakes, cones and cups are now available at participating locations in the following markets: Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston-Salem in North Carolina; Greenville, S.C.; Norfolk and Newport News, Va.; Charleston, W.Va.; Nashville and the Tri-Cities area in Tennessee, and San Antonio, Texas.

The line will soon be further rolling out to Mobile and Southwest, Ala.; Tampa, St. Petersburg and Pensacola, Fla.; New Orleans; Branson, Mo.; and Wichita, Kan.

Almost worth a road trip …
