It’s finally June, which means we have officially made it to Pride month! With so many celebrations forced to cancel last year due to COVID, many Pride parades are returning this year to New York, Atlanta, DC, Chicago, Boston, and more. In honor of celebrating the LGBTQ communities, you can enjoy these rainbow filled treats from food companies nationwide, so don’t miss out and be sure to support these colorful packs.

Shake Shack

Starting now through June 30, you can order Shake Shack’s limited edition Pride Shake, made with strawberry and blackberry flavored frozen custard and topped with a mango and passion fruit blend, whipped cream, and rainbow glitter.

The burger chain is donating 5% of sales to The Trevor Project, which in case you didn’t know, is the world’s largest suicide prevention and intervention organization for LGBTQ young people.


The popular year round rainbow colored candy is dropping its colors to show their support because, “during pride, only one rainbow matters.” For every Pride Pack sold until July 5, Skittles will donate $1 to GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).


EFFEN Vodka joined forces with Allies in Arts (a non-profit organization that supports underrepresented artists like women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ) to create a limited edition Pride 365 Bottle designed by LGBTQ artist and street muralist Sam Kirk.

The EFFEN Vodka 2021 Pride 365 Bottle is available year round nationwide at $21.99. For every Pride 365 Bottle made, EFFEN will donate $1 to Allies in Arts.

Mason Dixie

Mason Dixie, the breakfast brand known for its homestyle biscuit is a proud LGBTQ owned business spearheaded by co-owner, Ross Perkins.

To celebrate all month, Mason Dixie teamed up with some LGBTQ owned brands to offer a Pride Party Pack including:

  • Mason Dixie Chocolate Chip Scones
  • Mason Dixie Blueberry Lemon Scones
  • Proteau Rivington Spritz Botanical Drink *LGBTQ-owned*
  • Pipcorn Snacks *LGBTQ-owned*
  • Limited Edition Mason Dixie co-founder, Ross laptop sticker


Kellogg’s in partnership with GLAAD, released a Together with Pride cereal as a part of a 5-year plan to accelerate acceptance of LGBTQ folks everywhere.

For every purchase and consumer receipt upload until November 30, 2021, Kellogg’s will donate $3 to GLAAD.

Crystal Head Vodka

According to the brand press release, the signature vodka skull bottle is back by popular demand, however this will be the last year to purchase the limited edition Pride bottle design. The collector’s item is available until July 2021 at $49.99.

To further celebrate Pride, Crystal Head Vodka also partnered with Gay Pride Apparel to create a co-branded “Made with Pride” t-shirt. A portion of sales from each t-shirt sold will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign.

Carlo’s Bakery x TGI Fridays

“Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro and TGI Fridays teamed up to celebrate Pride month with the iconic six layer Rainbow Cake you know and love.

For every slice of the rainbow-colored vanilla cake sold, TGI Fridays will donate a portion of sales (up to $25,000) to GLSEN, an LGBTQ+ youth advocacy organization.

So next time you are at TGI Fridays this month, be sure to order the rainbow piled high vanilla cake filled with sweet vanilla icing, and covered with rainbow sprinkles.

On a separate note, truly surprised that Starbucks hasn’t released a Rainbow Frappuccino. Will be on the lookout for that.
