New Krispy Kreme Flavored Cheerwine Soda Is One Sugary Ouroboros

First there was Cheerwine, the nearly century-old cherry-flavored soda. Then came Cheerwine-flavored Krispy Kreme donuts. Now the snack snake is eating its own sugary tail as Cheerwine introduces a Krispy Kreme-flavored version of its signature beverage.

Cheerwine announced on social media this week that it had partnered with the donut maker to create a beverage with the “flavorful hint of Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed doughnut.”

The collaboration, according to the bottle, brings together two southern classics for one legendary taste.

Cheerwine and Krispy Kreme, both based in North Carolina, previously partnered in 2010 to create a Cheerwine-flavored donut.

The beverage is currently only available in certain North Carolina, South Carolina, and Savannah, GA stores, but that hasn’t stopped plenty of customers from seeking out the drinks.
