Krispy Kreme has partnered up with Cheerwine again, this time for a doughnut-flavored soft drink. Yes, you read that right. I'm trying to work out in my mind what that could possibly taste like.
Both companies are North Carolina-based and have teamed up once before with a Cheerwine creme-filled donut in 2010, but this...this is a whole 'nother level.
It appears that North Carolinians are proud of the beverage called Cheerwine Kreme, and I guess if something of this magnitude came out of my hometown I'd have to show some respect too.
But are they trying to kill us? Possibly.
According to USA Today, the beverage is currently being distributed in stores and doughnut shops in North and South Carolina as well as in Georgia.
For those who don't know, Cheerwine is a cherry-flavored soda and the brand claims to be “the oldest continuing soft drink company still run by the same family.”
Apparently, Cheerwine already makes for a mean ice cream float, and I'm sure a Cheerwine Kreme Float will soon follow.
