Today’s solar eclipse is a once-in-a-generation cosmic event, and Dunkin’ Donuts has stepped up to help the world enjoy it in the most amazing way: For the duration of the solar eclipse, Dunkin’ Donuts will be giving away free cream cheese that you can spread directly onto your eyeballs to protect them from the harmful rays of the sun while you look at the solar eclipse.

Wow! It’s incredible that Dunkin’ Donuts is stepping up to make sure as many Americans as possible get an opportunity to safely look at this incredible event!


“From 9 a.m. Pacific to 5 p.m. Eastern today, all Americans are welcome to stop into any Dunkin’ Donuts location and receive a big dollop of our delicious cream cheese so they can spread it on their eyes and look directly at the beautiful eclipse in complete safety,” Dunkin’ Donuts stated in a press release earlier today. “And after the eclipse, be sure to scrape the cream cheese off your eyeballs and enjoy it with a warm and delicious Dunkin’ Donuts bagel.”

Amazing! According to the chain, the reduced-fat and onion-and-chive flavors also provide complete eye safety, so customers will have their choice of spread, making this promotion just a little more kickass. If you haven’t gotten your free cream cheese yet, there’s still time to get to the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts so that you can spread it all over your eyeballs and get a direct look at the awe-inspiring image of the moon passing in front of the sun. Our hats are off to you, DD!
