I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have at least one sweet treat a day, I feel unsatisfied—both literally and figuratively. My body just does not allow me to close my eyes peacefully at night without some type of brownie, cookie, or Italian ice churning in my stomach. If you relate, you’ll love what I have in store for you: New sweet treats to try! Now you may have heard of this company… Kool-Aid. It's the versatile childhood beverage with a cool mascot that many of us used to temporarily dye hair in middle school. This summer, we are getting a combination of two of our favorite things: sweet treats and the nostalgic Kool-Aid brand. Rita's Italian Ice & Frozen Custard partnered with Kraft Heinz to produce a Rita's Kool-Aid-inspired Italian ice flavor. Customers can experience a brand new Tropical Punch ice just in time for summer.

When did the Kool-Aid flavor come out?

The new flavor hit stores on May 27. While it is not disclosed when the flavor will stop being served, it is speculated to be served all summer long. However, it is a limited-edition item, so get it while you can.

This Italian ice is joining their stacked summer flavor line-up ranging from lemonade to Dr. Pepper. You are bound to find something you love.

What Rita's Kool-Aid Italian ice offerings are on the menu?

This dessert has a unique quality proving it to be the snack of the summer. You can order a 5-layer Gelati; where it alternates vanilla gelato and Tropical Kool-Aid Punch Italian ice. This Rita's item is also topped with rainbow sprinkles, making it the certified treat of the summer.

You can even sip your Kool-Aid in an elevated way with Rita’s Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Ice blended drink if that’s more your speed.

So on your next trip to Rita’s, ditch the mango flavor you always get, and try something new.
