Krispy Kreme's Chocolate Glazed Donuts To Make A Rare Return

World-famous donut purveyor Krispy Kreme is known for its constant efforts to innovate the dessert and create the type of donuts you won't find anywhere else. And while it's the simple, light, and out-of-this-world fluffy Original Glazed version that put the brand on the map, this Friday and Saturday only, the red, white, and green, open-late donut stand is mixing things up with their rarely released chocolate version.

To celebrate World Chocolate Day on July 7, Krispy Kreme will be bringing back their Chocolate Glazed donut for two days only. On the 7th and 8th of this month, you can find this flavor in select stores and by ordering on the Krispy Kreme app and website. World Chocolate Day was first established in 2009 and is recognized by businesses across the globe. Whether chocolate, donuts, or both are your jam, celebrating with a rare Chocolate Glazed donut from Krispy Kreme might be just the weekend plans you were looking for. 

Rare but delicious chocolate glazed donuts

Adding chocolate to its original glaze recipe, the limited-time donut takes what we love about the original dough and flaky glaze in a sweet new direction. Customers in the store will experience the cocoa-y smell of fresh chocolate and may even catch a glimpse of the glaze waterfall that makes it possible. In the six years since this donut was first introduced, it has become a Krispy Kreme favorite.

The occasion for its initial rollout in 2017 was the total solar eclipse, which was visible across a large portion of the United States that year. The special release of the chocolate glaze was symbolic of the moon blocking out the sun. Even though total solar eclipses are not rare, it's uncommon to be able to see one from any one spot on land since much of the Earth's surface is water. Since that initial time when its Chocolate Glazed donuts hit the racks, their sightings have been nearly as infrequent as total solar eclipses. And given that the brand chooses the occasion to release them carefully, this might be the only time in 2023 that fans of the donut will be able to find it.
