Krispy Kreme
Krispy Kreme is celebrating the upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8 with a new limited-time Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut featuring Oreo cookies.
The Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut is an Original Glazed Doughnut dipped in black chocolate icing, topped with silver sprinkles, piped with a buttercream made with OREO pieces and a whole OREO cookie in the center.
“Eclipses are rare and so is our out-of-this-world Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut. Even if you cant 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,” Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme, said in a statement.
Krispy Kreme has been celebrating space events since 1969, when the brand served Original Glazed doughnuts at the launch viewing site for NASAs Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
In 2017, Krispy Kreme celebrated another total solar eclipse with an Original Glazed doughnut with chocolate glaze. In 2021, the brand offered a limited-edition Mars doughnut to celebrate the landing of the Perseverance Rover, and a Strawberry Supermoon Doughnut. In 2022, Krispy Kreme acknowledged astronomers who noted a supermassive black hole looked like their iconic doughnut by giving away Original Glazed doughnuts for free, and created a limited-edition Artemis Moon Doughnut to celebrate NASA’s Artemis I flight around the moon.
This year’s Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut will be available Friday, April 5 through Monday, April 8, in shop and for pickup or delivery via Krispy Kremes app and website while supplies last. They can be purchased individually, or as part of a dozen with six Total Solar Eclipse Doughnuts alongside six Original Glazed.
