Krispy Kreme is apparently putting its glazed doughnut into ice cream form.

The Charlotte-based doughnut chain on Tuesday said it has added Original Glazed Soft Serve Ice Cream to its locations in 10 markets and is planning to add the product to additional locations “soon.”

The company will use the ice cream in shakes and cones and will offer toppings such as pieces of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. “Our fans love Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and they also love rich, creamy ice cream,” Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. He called the offerings “deliciously unique.”

Krispy Kreme said that its ice cream is made with ingredients from its “secret” Original Glazed doughnut recipe, including its glaze flavor, along with whole milk.

The company’s new lineup of ice cream treats will feature seven recipes of shakes: Original Glazed, Strawberry Iced Sprinkled, Chocolate Iced, Lemon Filled, Cookies & Kreme, Birthday Batter and Coffee and Kreme. It will also feature three flavors of cups and waffle cones, including Original Glazed, Strawberry Iced Sprinkled and Chocolate Iced, and customers can choose toppings.

The 10 markets that have the ice cream are: Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston-Salem, N.C.; Greenville, S.C.; Norfolk and Newport News, Va.; Charleston, W.Va.; Nashville and the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee; and San Antonio.

Shops in Alabama, Florida, New Orleans, Missouri and Kansas will start offering the ice cream soon.
