Krispy Kreme celebrating Artemis launch with limited-edition moon doughnut

America is headed to outer space again. 

On Monday, NASA’s Artemis rocket is scheduled to launch from Kennedy Space Center — and one of America’s iconic doughnut chains has a special treat to celebrate. 

Krispy Kreme announced a special edition doughnut in honor of the scientific feat, the Artemis Moon Doughnut. 

It’s a cheesecake cream-flavored filled doughnut dipped in cookies ‘n’ cream icing with a swirl of cookie pieces. Its top looks similar to the moon’s surface, which is where Artemis is headed.

Artemis I is a test flight for NASA’s giant new Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft. The unmanned capsule will spend several weeks in space, swinging around the moon before returning to Earth – trying out a variety of things the space program hasn’t accomplished since the Apollo days.
