Step back cottagecore, because this summer it’s Barbiecore. That’s right, pink is taking over the nation and the world. Some of the hottest food brands are getting in on the Barbie action just in time for the movie release on July 21st.
Cool off this summer with Pinkberry
Pinkberry introduced its mouthwatering froyo creation “Barbie Land Berry Pink” this summer. It’s a blend of strawberry and dragon fruit frozen yogurt, topped with “Dream Sprinkles” (pink and white sprinkles, silver star sugar).

Pinkberry is also running a contest in collaboration with the Barbie movie. Enter by August 11th to win movie merch, tickets, and a $50 Pinkberry gift card.
You might have to make a trip to the United Kingdom (UK) for this one. Or just hit up Amazon. Either way, this delicious sweet popcorn popular in the UK has teamed up with Barbie to make their popcorn even more dreamy this summer.
Similar to Pinkberry, they are running a contest as well, but you have to snag a bag of their popcorn to enter. Winners of Proper’s giveaway will secure a free trip to California.
While you’re in California, you can check out Barbie’s Malibu Dream House, and of course, eat some Proper popcorn.
Barbie pasta by Pastificio Di Martino
They had me at Pasta. Who doesn’t love a good, hearty bowl of pasta? Bringing a pop of pink to the table is Pastificio Di Martino.
Launching an entire Barbie line of pasta this summer, Pastificio Di Martino adds some fun to the kitchen. They also have some collector’s gift sets complete with Chef Barbie, a child sized Barbie chef’s hat and coat, a book of recipes, and a multitude of pastas.
Pasta Di Martino goes pink together with Barbie to communicate a playful, fun and nurturing project. This global partnership aims at promoting family time as well as the right to food and play for everyone. Each purchase supports Food for Soul’s mission to empower social responsibility, save food from waste and nourish those who need it most.Pastifico Di Martino
While the pasta itself is not pink, I’m sure a nice pink vodka sauce would be a delicious pairing.
You can also find the Barbie penne rigate on the shelf of your local Whole Foods Market.
Barbie x Swoon Pink Lemonade!
If you’re thirsty, and in the market for a refreshing drink, this pink lemonade is sure to do the trick. The founder of Swoon, Jen, is a type 1 diabetic and has made it her mission to create delicious tasting, sugar free drinks for the masses, and Barbie.
Barbie is an iconic brand that continues to reflect the women of today. Together, Swoon and Barbie are committed to celebrate and evolve the classics to create a better future.Swoon
‘All That Glitters is Pink’ creation at Cold Stone
Warner Bros. Pictures, Mattel, and Cold Stone Creamery have partnered this summer to introduce a brand new Barbie-inspired ice cream flavor: Pink Cotton Candy. The ice cream flavor will be available to buy online and in-stores.
One of Cold Stone’s best features are their “creations” that plaster the walls of their stores. The newest creation, “All That Glitters is Pink’‘ combines the pink cotton candy ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, dance party sprinkles, and whipped topping. Order it in the “Gotta Have It” size to get a special-edition Barbie Movie themed ice cream cup.
Planning a Barbie premiere party? Make sure to pick up Cold Stone’s “Best Cake Ever.”
Drawing inspiration from the film’s Best Day Ever themes, this statement cake is made with layers of moist Yellow Cake and Pink Cotton Candy Ice Cream with Dance Party Sprinkles wrapped in fluffy White Frosting.Cold Stone Creamery
This frozen treat looks like it could cool off firefighter Barbie in no time.
But don’t just stop in for the yummy ice cream. Cold Stone is offering another sweepstake to throw your heels in. Prizes include Cold Stone Creamery gift cards, movie tickets, and even your very own Barbie Dream House.
You can enter on their contest website until August 8th, when this exciting collaboration fades into the setting sun of summer.
