Krispy Kreme's solar eclipse doughnut will celebrate the phenomenon in true chocolaty style.
On August 21st, millions are expected to gather to witness the once-in-a-lifetime event which will momentarily darken the skies. To pay homage to this experience, the iconic fast food chain will debut its classic glazed doughnut with a darkened twist. The once light brown dessert will feature a dark chocolate base, with cascading dark chocolate crafted to be reminiscent of the rare scene created by the moon passing the sun.
The limited edition doughnuts will be available throughout the United States for 2 days. The chain described the dessert as more than a fun treat, but a way for everyone to experience the eclipse, whether they're on the path of totality or not. Krispe Kreme is one of the many companies to use to the solar eclipse to advertise their brand.
