King cake flavored everything: is king cake flavor the new pumpkin spice?

King cake vodka, king cake ice cream, king cake coffee…

It’s Carnival season! You know what that means: king cake.

But every year, we see more and more foods come out with king cake flavors: vodka, ice cream, coffee.

Here’s a list of how your can get your fix if bread isn’t acceptable in your New Year’s diet.


At least three companies make king cake flavored vodka: Lucky Player (whose company claims to be the originator), Pinnacle, and Taaka. In terms of rating them, it goes like this: Lucky Player is the good one you keep at home, Pinnacle is the one you bring to the king cake tasting party, and Taaka is the bottle you bring to the route in your flask to ensure a good time.
