Kenny Rogers Milk Tea Soft Serve
Forget the ribs and chicken – Kenny Rogers threw their customers a sweet curveball in June with their quirky new dessert: the milk tea soft serve.
It's vanilla soft serve ice cream drizzled with a black tea sweet syrup, served with tapioca pearls and then topped with a sugar cone. Many diners raved about it – would you, too?
Krispy Kreme Wintermelon Donut
When it comes to amping up their donut game, don't understimate Krispy Kreme – there's a new Wintermelon Glaze donut in town, and according to them, is the first in the country.

Curious to try this? When it comes to the milk tea trend, almost nothing is spared – even your favorite Korean shaved ice dessert.
In collaboration with Happy Lemon, Bon Chon gave their signature bingsu the milk tea treatment, combining powder-fine ice with Happy Lemon's Brown Sugar Pearl Milk tea, topped with Milky Kreme and tapioca pearls. "Pearl-fection," they call it.
TGIFriday's Milk Tea Cheesecake
Thank God It's... Cheesecake?
