A national doughnut chain is offering a sweet new treat in celebration of the upcoming solar eclipse.

Krispy Kreme’s famous glazed doughnuts “will be eclipsed by a mouth-watering chocolate glaze” on Aug. 21, when the United States will experience its first total solar eclipse in nearly four decades – 1979 to be exact.

The doughnuts will be available during “Hot Light” hours on Aug. 19 and 20.

There are five Krispy Kreme restaurants in the Sacramento region:

▪ 5900 Florin Road, Sacramento.

▪ 768 Ikea Court, Suite 110, West Sacramento.

▪ 10317 Fairway Drive, Roseville.

▪ 1620 E. Monte Vista Ave., Vacaville.

▪ 2809 March Lane, Stockton.

The chocolate glaze doughnuts are available only at participating locations, so check with your nearest store first.

Here’s what to expect when the solar eclipse occurs in Sacramento on August 21, 2017. Views from other Northern California locations will be similar.
