WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Krispy Kreme is going dark ahead of the solar eclipse set to cast a shadow across part of the U.S. later this month.
The doughnut chain is giving its signature glazed treats a chocolate sheen for the first time ever in honor of the Aug. 21 eclipse, where the moon will pass in front of the sun.
The Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based company said in a news that the eclipse is “a rare occasion providing a total sensory experience for viewers across the continental U.S.” and its chocolate doughnuts will “have the same effect.”
The doughnuts are available beginning Aug. 19.
