Update, February 17, 2021: They say"if it ain't broke, don't fix it" which is probably why it's not necessary for us to get new creations from Krispy Kreme all the time. Still, the donut chain is so good to us that they offer seasonal treats for special occasions but the latest might be one of the most unique offerings from the brand. In honor of NASA's Perseverance Rover landing on Mars, Krispy Kreme made a Mars Doughnut that will only be available for one day only...and that day is tomorrow.

Gear up for Thursday, February 18, because Krispy Kreme shops will be offering the Mars Doughnut which includes a Chocolate Kreme-filled donut dipped in caramel icing with a red planet swirl so it resembles the planet, Mars. In addition, if you happen to be one of the 11 million people who entered NASA's"Send Your Name To Mars" promo, you can claim a free donut from your local Krispy Kreme by showing your NASA-issued Mars 2020 Perseverance boarding pass. Get excited!!

Original Post, February 16, 2021: We would travel throughout space and time to find a great donut—let's be real. But luckily, Krispy Kreme exists so we don't have to! The donut chain is getting some major inspiration from outer space for its latest creation, specifically from NASA’s Perseverance Rover.

Krispy Kreme is marking the occasion of the rover landing on Mars with an extremely limited-edition donut that looks like the planet itself. It's aptly named the"Mars Doughnut" and it will only be available in participating Krispy Kreme shops for one day. The out-of-this-world creation is a Chocolate Kreme-filled doughnut dipped in caramel icing with a red planet swirl and sprinkled with chocolate cookie crumbs.

The Perseverance is landing this Thursday, February 18, in Mars’ Jezero Crater, so that's when the donut will be available in shops. The rover will also be carrying the names of almost 11 million people who participated in NASA’s"Send Your Name to Mars" program and Krispy Kreme has an exciting surprise for those people. In addition to your name being in SPACE (how cool are you, by the way??), Krispy Kreme will also give you this Mars donut for FREE. All you have to do to get one is to show your NASA-issued Mars 2020 Perseverance“boarding pass” to redeem.

Head to your local participating Krispy Kreme on Thursday to get a Mars donut of your very own and feel like a regular space explorer...just, you know, without all the freeze-dried food. Donuts are way better anyway!! Oh, and on Thursday, you can stream the rover's landing here. Preferably with a donut in hand!!
