Ready your portal guns and prepare to be transported somewhere delicious - the world’s favourite time-travelling TV show is branching out into the foodieverse.
Following previous successful food collaborations, the creators of “Rick and Morty” have revealed a new range of sweet treats designed to make you forget the heartache of having to wait for the second half of season four. Who needs closure when you can have Rick and Morty Krispy Kremes?
Recently launched in Australia, the show’s latest mash-up features three all-new doughnuts, each designed as a nod to one of the most beloved moments from the series. Available in a specially created novelty box, the Rick and Morty Krispy Kremes are the only reasonable way for Aussie fans to get schwifty, short of breaking into Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s basement to steal season four, episodes six to 10.
Watch the moment that Morty discovers Pickle Rick:
Included in the squanch-worthy line-up is a citrus-flavoured Pickle Rick doughnut, stuffed with lemony filling to replicate the sharpness of a pickle, a bright pink Simple Rick wafer cookie and cream doughnut, and a marshmallow-loaded Strawberry Smiggles ring. All this can be washed down with a delicious side of Fleeb Juice. Wabba lubba dub-dub, indeed.
As hungry Rick and Morty fans will know, this isn’t the first time that the show has crossed paths with the fast-food industry. Most recently, the cartoon collaborated with beloved potato snack Pringles to release a Pickle Rick-flavoured chip. As excitement around the second half of the new season reaches boiling point, it’s safe to assume that we’ll only see an increase in the amount of Morty-heavy merch.
As per a report in Comic Book, the new doughnuts will only be available until the 16th of March. Dedicated fans, therefore, have a difficult decision to make before they rush to their nearest Krispy Kreme store to stock up. They might be delicious, but do you really want to endorse a system where artistic expression is compromised by corporate partnerships? Capitalism, after all, is just "slavery, with extra steps”.
