Krispy Kreme creates 'tastiest eclipse in history' for Aug. 21 solar eclipse

Krispy Kreme using chocolate glaze on famous donuts for upcoming Solar Eclipse

That's why when Instagram user @candyhunting posted a picture announcing a solar eclipse themed Krispy Kreme donut, we screamed very, very loudly.

The doughnuts will have a much longer life span of three days.

Krispy Kreme Doughnut stores now offer chocolate-iced variations of their doughnut, but this special edition doughnut will be totally "eclipsed by a mouth-watering chocolate glaze", per a press release the company issued on Wednesday. The doughnut will be available throughout the day and will be made fresh from 6-10 a.m. and 5-8 p.m. August 21.

The doughnuts will be available at participating US and Canada stores only.

The KK website says fans can get a first taste of the limited-time doughnut when the "Hot" sign is on Saturday, Aug. 19 and Sunday, Aug. 20.

And guests can get an early taste of the limited-time chocolate-glazed donut during evening "Hot Light" hours August 19 and 20.

For the first time, Krispy Kreme's Original Glazed® Doughnuts will be eclipsed by a mouth watering chocolate glaze to coincide with the solar eclipse Monday, Aug. 21 at participating US/CAN shops.
