King cake, the tasty symbol of Carnival, is a staple for everyone from January 6 until Ash Wednesday. Although Mardi Gras is on the short side this year, everyone can make up for it by integrating not just the delicious king cake variations, but also, other food and drink items that the sweet cinnamon brioche flavor inspires.
In addition to the new king cake flavored dishes listed below, and the ubiquitous seasonal king cake vodka selection, a few new products have also just hit the market this year: Thibodaux brewery Mudbug Brewing's King Cake Ale, Abita's king cake soda (reportedly, Abita president David Blossman wouldn't sign off on the recipe until his kids approved.), and Cocktail & Son's limited-edition king cake syrup, so do be on the lookout for those.
