It is available from now through March 1 at Copeland's of New Orleans locations. "We have partnered with three local family businesses to create the ultimate comfort dessert," Al Copeland, Jr. said in a press release. "Our chef took the delicious flavor of Gambino's King Cake Rum Cream and combined it with Kleinpeter's heavy cream to create a warm king cake rum sauce that tops the from-scratch bread pudding made from Leidenheimer French bread."

Sidewalk Side Spirits, another local business, is where Gambino's King Cake Rum Cream comes from, partnered with Gambino's Bakery and the award-winning bartenders of New Orleans' Cocktail & Sons to produce the King Cake Rum Cream. "When we created Sidewalk Side Spirits, it's no coincidence that our first brand would be Gambino's King Cake Rum Cream," John Eason, founder of Sidewalk Side Spirits, said in a press release. "We wanted to build iconic New Orleans spirit brands that had close ties to New Orleans and the surrounding community. We are excited to partner with Copeland's deep local roots and a maverick history of culinary innovation, great food, and fun. Cheers to getting Mardi Gras back and King Cake Rum Cream Bread Pudding!"
