It’s getting warm out there, which means that a man’s fancy turns from cheeseburgers to ice cream. And then back to cheeseburgers, because you can cook out when it’s warm.

Anyway, point being there’s a lot coming out this month that leans into the “refreshing treat” category, with a variety of wild ice cream flavors, and some delicious sounding shakes and slushes as well.

Don’t worry, there’s a savory item on our list, too. But just one. See if you can spot it!

So let’s get into it! Here are the seven new snack items we can’t wait to chow down on in May of 2024.

Dunkin’s Watermelon Burst Donut

There are a number of intriguing additions to Dunkin’s Early Summer menu, but the wildest is the Watermelon Burst donut, which is “filled with watermelon-flavored jelly and coated in sweet red sugar.” Sounds… Refreshing?

Cold Stone Creamery Waffle Ice Cream Taco

It might not technically be the Choco Taco, but it’s the next best thing – and only available through May 5, 2024 at your local Cold Stone. Waffle shell, sweet cream ice cream, chocolate and nuts. Yum.

Sonic Orange Cloudsicle Slush Float

Orange slush with orange flavor bubbles (read: boba) and orange cream, as well as whipped cream? It’s an orange dream!

Baskin-Robbins X IF Menu

We’re getting not one, but two Flavors of the Month in May from Baskin-Robbins, both based on the upcoming movie IF. I’m personally more intrigued by Blue’s Boardwalk Bash, which is combo of blue raspberry, cotton candy, and OREOs. But Blossom’s Berry Twirl, which includes strawberry, sweet cream, rainbow sprinkles, and pink sugar cookie dough sounds delicious, too.

Shake Shack’s New Shakes

The Shack has three new shakes for the summer: Chocolate Salted Caramel, Peaches and Cream, and Strawberry Frosted Donut. The latter sounds the most intriguing, with donut ice cream and strawberry frosting on top. But personally I’m guessing I’ll like the salted caramel best. That’s how I roll, baby!

Jif Peanut Butter & Chocolate Flavored Spread

It’s a classic combo for a reason, and now Jif is making it available in stores everywhere. Can’t wait to eat it all with a spoon – I mean, make sandwiches with it or something.

IHOP Pancake of the Month: White Chocolate Raspberry

We can all accept this is dessert, not breakfast, right? Cool, because it definitely is not something I would want to sugar-bomb my insides with in the morning.
