Donut fans, this one is for you. Krispy Kreme is set to debut a limited run of donuts that coincides with the solar eclipse. The donut chain will offer a chocolate rendition of the classic Original Glazed on August 21, the same day as the natural event. There is a catch though: customers are only allowed to purchase the limited donut before its debut during the Hot Light hours on August 19, 20 and all day on Monday the 21st.
In a statement by Jackie Woodward, the CMO of Krispy Kreme states:
“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. The Chocolate Glazed Doughnut is a delicious way to experience the solar eclipse — no matter where you are — and we can’t wait for fans to try it.”
