Starting today and lasting for only a limited time, Krispy Kreme's special-edition chocolate-glazed doughnuts are available in stores to celebrate the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday. The new and superexclusive doughnuts are available this weekend during your local shop's Hot Light hours and all day Monday. But of course, you just want to know if it's worth a trip to Krispy Kreme to try these doughnuts, am I right? In a word: yes. These chocolate-glazed doughnuts are Krispy Kreme's tried-and-true classic doughnuts with a chocolate glaze, rather than the classic. The doughnut, as expected, is sweet and fluffy, and the chocolate glaze melts in your mouth. And because it's a glaze and not a frosting, it's not overly sweet or thick, but rather light with a bit of a crystallized crunch.
This new doughnut is something Krispy Kreme has never done before but something we really hope it decides to do again. Check with your local shop to see when you might be able to find the eclipse doughnut this weekend, and if nothing else, definitely pick up one - or a dozen - on Monday. You will be glad you did.
