It’s officially summer and brands are starting to put out all their new items to help keep you cool. A new flavor of popsicle that may leave you more grossed out than cooled off and Krispy Kreme is entering the ice cream game!

This Summer’s Grossest Treat Has Arrived: A Ketchup Popsicle

French’s has partnered with a Canadian popsicle company to create a ketchup popsicle called the “French’sicle.” It’s described as “perfectly savory, with a hint of salty sweetness.”
The bad news is you can only purchase these at pop-up locations in Canada . . . BUT they have provided a recipe so that you can make them at home.

There are only four ingredients, so it won’t be torture.

Krispy Kreme Is Selling Donut-Flavored Ice Cream

Here’s your newest unhealthy food option: Krispy Kreme is now selling donut-flavored ICE CREAM at select stores around the country.

It’s only available at a few locations in six states for now . . . North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Texas. But they’re expanding to more stores later this summer. (Here’s a list of stores that currently have it.)

It’s called “Original Glazed Soft Serve,” so it’s supposed to taste like their glazed donuts. You can get it in a cone, or a dish.

They’re also using it in seven different milkshakes: Original Glazed . . . Strawberry . . . Chocolate . . . Lemon . . . “Cookies and Kreme” . . . “Coffee and Kreme” . . . and Birthday Batter.

James Ranks His Favorite Breakfast (Soda) Pops

  • 8. Orange Pop (Sunkist/Faygo/Fanta)

    Orange PopThis was the first flavor of pop I gravitated towards drinking in the morning hours.  I think it’s because of it’s similarities (color and flavor) to Orange juice… Orange juice was always something people drank in the morning. So this was just a really swap of juice for pop.

    My favorite brand of Orange pop is Fanta (it’s ok to sing the song…), but Faygo and Sunkist brand are just as good.

     

     

  • 7. MTN Dew

    MTN DewIf there is no Orange pop available a super easy second choice is a good ole Mountain Dew.

    The classic carbonated lemon lime flavor and the higher levels of caffeine help delivery the much needed energy in the AM.

     

     

     

  • 6. MTN Dew Code Red

    Code RedIf a Code Red is available over a regular Dew I’ll always go Code Red.

    They really stepped the Mountain Dew game up by adding the cherry aftertaste to their already legendary Dew flavor.

     

     

     

  • 5. Fresca

    FrescaNow I’m not sure what the creators of “the Boys” had against the delicious no calorie grapefruit pop but it is one of the best flavors to start your day with!

    Best of all its calorie free and not technically a “diet” pop. (I’m not a scientist or dietician so don’t quote me on that…I prob heard it on TikTok)

     

     

  • 4. Squirt

    SquirtA lot of people start their day with delicious fresh grapefruit and if there is not Fresca available (sometimes it can be harder to find) another great breakfast pop is Squirt!

    This has a bit more of an intense grapefruit flavor and to me seems to be more carbonated then a Fresca.

    I LOVE the bubbly grapefruit morning flavor of Squirt!

     

  • 3. MTN Dew Spark

    MTN Dew SparkAnother soft drink I LOVE is pink lemonade! Now combine that sweet lemony flavor with the classic MTN Dew and you have a hit!

    This flavor just started hitting stores within the last year and it’s quickly become one of my favorites to start my day.

     

     

  • 2. Ruby Red Squirt

    Ruby RedGrowing up I always enjoyed eating pink grapefruit. Usually for a late breakfast or a quick snack.

    Naturally when Squirt stepped up their game and created Ruby Red Squirt a pop flavor inspired by the delicious pink grapefruit I had to try it!

    It is one of my all-time favorite flavors I can drink anytime but it’s SO HARD TO FIND IN DIET! I’ve kicked off many mornings sipping on this sweet nectar…when I could find it!

  • 1. Faygo 60/40

    faygo60-40This one is a bit of a regional flavor since it’s manufactured by Detroit’s own Faygo! But the 60/40 is a mix of Grapefruit and Lime. (I think it’s a 60% Grapefruit and 40% Lime but not confirmed)

    Drinking this flavor one morning is what made me realize the existence of breakfast specific pops and was dubbed the first official “Breakfast Pop.”

    It’s the prefect mix of grapefruit with lime and is the best flavor to wake up with.
