Duck Donuts locations, including the new shop in White Marsh, will offer a variety of eclipse-themed doughnuts for the upcoming solar event.

Coated with chocolate and vanilla drizzles, Oreo crumbles, powdered sugar and other black-and-white toppings, Duck Donuts' "Eclipse Assortment" will include a dozen flavors meant to resemble the different stages of the eclipse.

Marylanders will experience a partial solar eclipse when the moon crosses between the earth and sun next Monday.

What to know before next week's solar eclipse

Marylanders won't get to view the full effect of the phenomenon- the state will only reach about 85 percent totality and the skies won't completely darken, but NASA research scientist Michael Kirk said it's still worth stepping outside for a few minutes in the afternoon to view the moon partially eclipse the sun.

The assortment will be available to pre-order Aug. 19-21. Four dozen is the minimum number of doughnuts required to place an order in advance.

North Carolina-based Duck Donuts offers doughnuts made to order with customers' choice of toppings.

The chain opened a White Marsh location in late June at 5272 Campbell Blvd. in the Nottingham Square shopping center. It also has Maryland locations in Rockville and Gaithersburg.
