WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Krispy Kreme is going dark ahead of the solar eclipse set to cast a shadow across part of the U.S. later this month.

The doughnut chain is giving its signature glazed treats a chocolate sheen for the first time ever in honor of the Aug. 21 eclipse, where the moon will pass in front of the sun.

The Winston-Salem, N.C.-based company says in a press release that the eclipse is "a rare occasion providing a total sensory experience for viewers across the continental U.S." and its chocolate doughnuts will "have the same effect."

The doughnuts are available beginning Aug. 19.
