After a difficult year and a new year that doesn't seem to be getting much better, every little joy counts. This week Mars is important and Krispy Kreme honors it with a new themed donut. How can you try it for free today?
This is a big week for the red planet for NASA's Mars Perseverance rover is going to land there on February 18 after its months-long journey from Earth and the doughnut company and coffeehouse chain is celebrating it with a new Chocolate-Filled Mars Donut.
“Let the #CountdownToMars begin! For ONE DAY ONLY, 2/18, grab your own piece of the Red Planet to celebrate the @NASAJPL Perseverance Rover touching down on #Mars! ������. This treat will be out of this world!” said Krispy Kreme on its Instagram account.
Krispy Kreme announced on Tuesday The Mars Doughnut: a red chocolate-filled donut dipped in caramel icing with "a red planet swirl" and a sprinkle of chocolate cookie crumbs.
The limited-edition donut will be released today, for only one day, to celebrate the safe arrival of Perseverance.
However, the best part of the launch is that some get to try it for free. What people are on the list of lucky clients?
The way to score the freebie is to be one of the 11 million people who put their name on the new rover as part of NASA's "Send Your Name to Mars" program.
If you're one of these symbolic space travelers, you can take your NASA-issued Perseverance "boarding pass" to a local Krispy Kreme today and get your free red donut.
If your name isn't on the rover, you may still want to try the Mars Donut before it disappears, so remember to run over to your local store before the end of the day.
