To help Americans celebrate total solar eclipse on April 8, Krispy Kreme has announced its limited-time Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut – an Original Glazed Doughnut dipped in black chocolate icing, adorned with silver sprinkles, piped with a buttercream made with OREO pieces and a whole OREO cookie in the center. 

Krispy Kreme’s Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut will be available in-shop Friday, April 5, through Monday, April 8, and for pickup or delivery via Krispy Kreme’s app and website while supplies last. The doughnut can be purchased individually or as a specialty dozen featuring six Total Solar Eclipse doughnuts and six Original Glazed doughnuts. 

This is the second time Krispy Kreme has treated fans to an all-new doughnut to celebrate a total solar eclipse. For the last total solar eclipse, the U.S. experienced in 2017, the brand “eclipsed” its Original Glazed doughnut in the chocolate glaze for the first time ever. 

“Eclipses are rare and so is our out-of-this-world Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut,” says Dave Skena, global chief brand officer, Krispy Kreme. “Even if you can’t be in the path of totality you can get in the path of these treats, which you will eat in totality. Stop by and get some for you and some to share so you can flex your science side and great taste at the same time.”  

The Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut extends Krispy Kreme legacy of treating fans to creative and innovative sweets and deals celebrating space-related events, dating to 1969 when the brand served fresh Original Glazed doughnuts at the launch viewing site of NASA’s Apollo 11 Mission to the moon.
