Exactly what does one eat during a solar eclipse? Doughnuts. Especially if they’re covered in chocolate.
For the first time, Krispy Kreme is covering its Original Glazed® Doughnuts with chocolate to coincide with the solar eclipse Monday, August 21. To find participating US/Canadian stores click here.
The Krispy Kreme location in Springfield, Mo., offered to let us sample a test batch before the official preview this weekend. They were a big hit in the office. And I’m gauging that based on the empty boxes I found in the Culinary Center. We give them a thumb’s up.
Over the weekend, the Eclipse Doughnut will be available during Hot Light hours, which is the indicator that fresh doughnuts are coming off the line. Happy eclipse watching and remember not to dunk and drive.
