Krispy Kreme's Total Solar Eclipse Donuts

Krispy Kreme is celebrating the solar eclipse in a sweet way.

From April 5 through April 8, the donut spot is selling its Total Solar Eclipse donut. The limited-edition, Oreo-packed treat is honoring the rare celestial event occurring in North America on April 8.

The Total Solar Eclipse donut takes an original glazed donut and dips it in black chocolate icing. It is then topped with silver sprinkles and Oreo buttercream. The Oreo details don’t stop there: There is an entire cookie in the middle of the donut.

The sandwich cookie center resembles how the Sun, the Moon and Earth line up during an eclipse. As the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, it casts a shadow on our planet that either fully or partially blocks the Sun's light in certain areas.

NASA has released a map highlighting places that will experience the solar eclipse on April 8, including cities in the path of totality. The eclipse will only be visible for a few minutes and a total solar eclipse won’t occur again for another 20 years.
