Upstate goes crazy for Krispy Kreme’s special eclipse donuts


Lines wrapped around several Krispy Kreme locations in the Upstate on Sunday as crowds waited anxiously for a special edition treat.

Our FOX Carolina crew witnessed the madness up close at Woodruff Road’s Krispy Kreme location.

One customer said they’d waited in line for an hour and a half just to get their hands on the special edition #ChocolateGlaze eclipse donuts. Another reported that the line eventually reached over two hours.

The company has been building anticipation for the limited edition treat for days on its social media:
