Krispy Kreme Launches Pickle Rick Doughnuts And Fleeb Juice Milkshakes In Australia
| Last updated
Krispy Kreme Australia has launched a new range of doughnuts in partnership with the animated TV series Rick and Morty.
Out of all the doughnuts on offer, the 'Pickle Rick' flavour - named in honour of an episode from season three, episode three, which sees titular scientist Rick Sanchez turning himself into a pickle to avoid family therapy - has certainly grabbed our attention.
The company is reassuring us that the doughnut definitely doesn't taste like a pickle, which probably comes as something of a relief to most fans. Instead, Krispy Kreme says this creation comes 'from a reality where pickles taste like lemon crème and white choc'.
That sounds like one hell of a doughnut.
In addition to this brilliant culinary concoction, the company has also released the Simple Rick's Wafer Cookie Doughnut and the Strawberry Smiggles Doughnut.
The first will fill your tastebuds with vanilla creme and strawberry truffle, while the Smiggles doughnut is topped with mini marshmallows and meringue chunks with a strawberry filling.
But if you're a little thirsty, then Krispy Kreme has you sorted with a Fleeb Juice milkshake.
Fans of the show will remember fleebs from 'Cable 2: Tempting Fate' in Season 2. They are living beings that are used as a tool for making Plumbuses (duh). When it needs to, it excretes a juice called Fleeb Juice (obviously).
This creation is a mixture of raspberry and 'blue heaven' flavours.
Krispy Kreme said: "Of all the realities Rick and Morty could possibly stumble upon, ours is the most delicious!
"Try these amazing doughnuts before they vanish through a portal to a different dimension!"
The special range will be in store until 16 March or until all the stock is eaten, which, judging from the company's social media feed, won't be long. Since debuting on Facebook, pictures of the new products have been liked, shared and commented on by 27,000 people.
Rick and Morty fans will be able to get the doughnuts in Krispy Kreme stores across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, the ACT, Western Australia and Auckland. Sadly, they won't be sold at BP stations or at 7-Elevens, but they are available via UberEats.
The people behind Rick and Morty also teamed up with Pringles earlier this year to launch a special Super Bowl product that got everyone excited.
Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles said in a statement: "We want to do something completely new for the brand for the 2020 Big Game and are thrilled to be partnering with Adult Swim and Rick and Morty, a show which continues to grow in popularity year after year and enjoys a cult fan following.
"We hope the new special edition Pickle Rick flavour will be a hit with the show's fans."
They were only available in America - but maybe they'll be rolled out elsewhere in future...? Time will tell.
