Krispy Kreme is celebrating this week’s historic landing of NASA’s Perseverance Rover on Mars with the release of a limited-edition Mars Doughnut for one day only on February 18, 2021.
Designed to look like the red planet, the limited-edition Mars Doughnut features a Chocolate Kreme-filled doughnut dipped in caramel icing with a red planet swirl and sprinkled with chocolate cookie crumbs.
Additionally, when Perseverance lands in Mars’ Jezero Crater on Thursday, it will also be carrying the names of nearly 11 million people who participated in NASA’s “Send Your Name to Mars” program.
In celebration of these special space “travelers,” Krispy Kreme will be offering each one a free Mars Doughnut on Thursday, February 18 when they show their NASA-issued Mars 2020 Perseverance “boarding pass” to redeem.
Krispy Kreme’s limited-edition Mars Doughnut can be found orbiting participating locations planet-wide on Thursday, February 18, 2021.
