In a press release, the ice cream chain stated that the ice cream is available on its own or as a shake. The chain is also offering a special item, Ice Cream at the End of the Rainbow, that doubles the amount of marshmallows, whipped topping and gold glitter.

Just like the cereal, Lucky Charms Ice Cream is mixed with marshmallows that are shaped like a variety of luck-themed items.
