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 21.
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.”
