Move over Barbie Dream House, there’s a new place to find Mattel’s favorite plastic princess! Beloved ice cream chain Cold Stone Creamery is offering Barbie-inspired treats just in time for Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie film. Cold Stone’s newest ice Barbie-themed concoction is colored—what else?—pink and tastes like cotton candy.

Cold Stone Creamery is teaming with Barbie to bring special flavors, sprinkles, and the Best Cake Ever! to fans across the country.

Cold Stone Creamery is offering its new Pink Cotton Candy treats in two varieties. Fans of Barbie and spun sugar can get the All That Glitters is Pink Creation that combines Pink Cotton Candy Ice Cream and Graham Cracker Pie Crust, as well as Dance Party Sprinkles. The whole thing is topped off with Whipped Topping for a scrumptious dessert that might spike your blood sugar but tastes delicious while it does so.

Customers can also experience Pink Cotton Candy bliss with the Best Cake Ever! That’s not our opinion but rather the name of the hybrid confection containing moist yellow cake and Pink Cotton Candy Ice Cream.

The cake is again covered in Dance Party Sprinkles and then “wrapped” in a “fluffy White Frosting.” If that’s not enough Barbie for you, Cold Stone Creamery is offering these Gotta Have It Creations in limited edition Barbie movie-themed custom cups—while supplies last, of course.

Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in Barbie

Sara Schmillen, vice president of marketing for Kahala Brands—Cold Stone Creamery’s parent company—expressed her excitement over Cold Stone being the franchise chosen to collaborate with Warner Bros on a Barbie-themed frozen delight. “Two brands that inspire creativity make for a powerful activation,” Schmillen said before describing the desserts “pink hues” and “Dance Party Sprinkles” as akin to having Barbie herself show up to “join in the fun!”

Cold Stone Creamery and Mattel want the pink hues and wild desserts to feel like Barbie is joining in the fun.

Cold Stone Creamery was founded 35 years ago in Tempe, Arizona. The brand expanded in 1995 by opening its first franchise location, also in Tempe, Arizona. Since then, the Cold Stone brand has expanded to 1,300 locations in 20 countries worldwide. The growing popularity of the Cold Stone Creamery franchise made it the perfect choice to collaborate with one of the most famous toys in existence.

Barbie is scheduled to release on July 21 and stars Margot Robbie as the titular doll along with Ryan Gosling as her plastic boyfriend, Ken. The cast also features several Barbie and Ken variations played by everyone from Issa Rae and Kate McKinnon to Simu Liu and John Cena, as well as many other talented actors. The movie follows Barbie as she suffers an existential crisis about her plastic world and her own existence.

Margot Robbie Didn’t Think Barbie Would Get Made

Robbie revealed earlier this year that she loved the Barbie script from the first time she read it but assumed that no studio would ever let such a movie be made. “What a shame it will never see the light of day,” Robbie said. Cut to the present day, and Barbie is one of the most anticipated releases of the summer. If the film performs well enough, Gerwig is hoping to be offered more big-budget tentpole movies—something in short supply for woman directors.

Mattel, meanwhile, has already started developing other thought-provoking takes on some of its other properties, including an artistic take on Barney the Dinosaur involving Jordan Peele’s favorite actor Daniel Kaluuya. One thing’s for sure if Barbie ends up even half as sweet as Cold Stone Creamery’s new Pink Cotton Candy creations, viewers are in for a good time!
