Krispy Kreme Offering Special Doughnut To Celebrate Solar Eclipse

Krispy Kreme is offering a new glazed donut in the days leading up to the solar eclipse Aug. 21.

The chocolate glazed doughnut will be available during Hot Light hours Aug. 19 and 20 and on the day of the eclipse. It includes the store’s original glazed doughnut “smothered in a rich chocolate glaze,” according to a release.

“The solar eclipse is a rare occasion providing a total sensory experience for viewers across the continental U.S. Chocolate will have the same effect as we introduce a first-time chocolate glazing of our iconic Original Glazed Doughnut,” Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, said in a statement.

The total solar eclipse is expected to be visible in certain parts of the country later this month. It last occurred in 1979.
