It's hard to improve upon the perfection of a Krispy Kreme glazed donut, but the franchise's Japan locations have found a way. As reported by Mashable, Krispy Kreme Japan will soon be selling ice "kreme" and gelato sandwiches served on a donut bun.

The Cool Krispy Sandwich starts with a classic Original Glazed donut that's been split down the middle. That serves as the vehicle for a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a scoop of raspberry gelato, and mixture of frozen berries. Japanese Krispy Kreme locations will be rolling out the cool treats on April 13, just in time for ice cream season.

The Cool Krispy looks relatively tame in comparison to Krispy Kreme-sandwich hybrids that have been created in the past. Last year, the donut chain teamed up with a Delaware minor league baseball team to create a bacon bit-covered hot dog served on a glazed donut bun. Krispy Kreme hamburgers are also a crowd favorite at several state fairs. If pairing donuts with ice cream sounds like more your speed, the new item will be available at locations across Japan for around $3.75.
