Golden Gaytime and Krispy Kreme have teamed up to create a doughnut and ice cream inspired by each other.

The Krispy Kreme inspired Golden Gaytime ice cream includes an original-glazed inspired ice cream filling, coated in a doughnut flavoured crumb.

The Krispy Kreme Golden Gaytime Doughnut. With the official Golden Gaytime crumb, on a hand-dipped chocolate shell with a double-layered filling of Golden Gaytime toffee and Vanilla crème.

Streets brand manager Samantha Jarmul said, “We’re thrilled to partner with Krispy Kreme and 7-Eleven, to give our iconic Golden Gaytime an exciting new form. Aussies can find everything they love about the crumbly goodness of our Gaytimes in a delicious new way and truly enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to snack-time.”

Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer Russell Schulman said, “We know our customers love a unique spin on our iconic Krispy Kreme doughnut, and this exciting collaboration is something Aussies have been ice-screaming for! Launching this limited edition Australian Golden Gaytime Ice-cream has been a match made in flavour-heaven!”

They are available exclusively at 7-Eleven stores across Australia for a limited time.
