When it comes to doughnuts, there is but one king. Still, the giant fried pastry made of concrete near LAX that sits atop Randy’s Donuts has been a beacon to sweet seekers, including bushmen, Martians, and genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropists. Dishing up doughnuts since 1953, Randy’s is a cultural icon and the latest to team up with soda brand Pepsi for a sweet collab.
A first for Pepsi, the ColaCream donut is filled with Pepsi and cream, with a sprinkling of pop rocks for added fun—and it even comes frosted on top with the brand’s signature Globe logo. The packaging is a primarily blue affair, dominated by typical SoCal tropes like beaches and palm trees, along with doughnuts, soda cans, and for an unapparent reason, a football (though perhaps there’s a Super Bowl tie-in). Pepsi branding dominates the donut box, though some of Randy’s branding peeks out from under the packaging.
“The Pepsi ColaCream Donut is our most creative and delicious collaboration so far. The Pepsi ColaCream Combo Box is the best way for Pepsi fans and donut lovers everywhere to enjoy this multi-sensory experience, which will literally pop in your mouth with flavor,” said Mark Kelegian, owner of Randy’s Donuts, via press release. “We know our fans will love the Pepsi ColaCream Donut and will be coming back for more.”
Pepsi ColaCream donuts are available as a combo with a 20 oz Pepsi exclusively at Randy’s original Inglewood, CA location, from January 23rd to February 20th.
