From Aug. 19-21, Duck Donuts is following national chain Krispy Kreme in getting in the spirit of the total solar eclipse with a limited-time assortment of eclipse doughnuts.
The donuts will include Duck’s original cake doughnuts with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles, vanilla icing with Oreo and hot fudge drizzle, chocolate icing with marshmallow drizzle and more eclipse-inspired combinations.
“Solar eclipse events are being planned across the country and we’re here to help bring an extra themed treat to the viewing party,” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts franchising company. “We’ve been told our donuts are out of this world, and now this assortment offers a way for our customers to see them in a new light.”
Krispy Kreme announced last week that it would offer a limited time eclipse doughnut--the chain’s original glazed covered in specially made rich chocolate glaze.
The Outer Banks-based Duck Donuts opened in Columbia last month at 702 Cross Hill Rd. in the Whole Foods-anchored Cross Hill Market. The shop is open 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
