Krispy Kreme Celebrates Solar Eclipse with New Chocolate-Glazed Doughnut

By Erica Abbott


A once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse is definitely a cause for celebration and what better way to mark the occasion than with delicious doughnuts? Krispy Kreme is debuting a limited-edition chocolate-glazed doughnut to celebrate the “tastiest eclipse in history” and it will surely cast a total eclipse over your doughnut-loving heart.

According to Food & Wine, the popular doughnut chain will be changing up their signature glazed doughnuts for the first time in its 80-year history. The new mouth-watering doughnuts, however, will disappear just as quickly as the celestial event. “Customers will only be able to taste these rare, chocolate-glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts on the day of eclipse, and on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20, during select stores’ evening Hot Light hours,” Extra Crispy reports.

The total solar eclipse will grace the sky on Aug. 21. It will be visible from Oregon to South Carolina, according to, and will last no longer than a few minutes in each state that is on the path of totality. Those who plan on viewing the rare astronomical phenomenon will need solar viewing glasses given that looking directly at the sun can cause serious eye damage.

Even if you don’t get the chance to see the solar eclipse, a chocolate-glazed doughnut will no doubt be a great way to kick off your week. For a list of participating locations, visit Krispy Kreme’s website.
