Very important and exciting news: there’s going to be a solar eclipse on April 8. Its path of totality will be from Texas to New York, and it will be the last total solar eclipse until 2044. Unfortunately, not everyone will have the privilege of seeing the eclipse this year (I know I won’t be able to) but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate the eclipse. Here’s a list of total solar eclipse-themed deals from fast food chains and restaurants that will have you over the moon.

Applebee’s Bar & Grill

Applebee’s Bar+Grill has a drink it’s shaking up for the eclipse, the Perfect Patron Eclipse Margarita. The mixed drink is Patron Silver, Patron Citrónge, Morin Blue, and raspberry and passion fruit, with lemon and lime.

Burger King

Royal Perk members who text ECLIPSE to 251251 will score free (!!!) Whoppers all day on April 8. Customers can then get a buy-one-get-one offer which can be redeemed by ordering on Burger King's app and online through April 15.


Texas Dairy Queen locations will be giving away free DQ Sandwich Treats — chocolate wafers with a soft serve center — on Monday, April 8. Texas customers can redeem the offer through the DQ mobile app.

Jack in the Box

New and existing Jack Pack members can get a BOGO deal for Jumbo Jack burgers to celebrate the solar eclipse. Members will need to make a qualifying purchase of at least one Jumbo Jack — a seasoned beef patty, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, ketchup, and mayo on a buttery bakery bun — on April 8.

The solar eclipse deal is valid at participating locations nationwide on April 8 only.

Jeni’s Ice Cream

Jeni’s is releasing a new collection of ice cream flavors on March 28 with four cosmic flavors. The ice cream release was devised specifically for the solar eclipse and is coming out just in time. The collection includes Nebular Berry with a fruity berry flavor, Cosmic Bloom featuring tropical flavors, Purple Star Born with a grape and blackcurrant flavor, and Supermoon, which tastes like cereal milk.

If you buy the ice cream online, you get eclipse glasses with your order.

Perfect Bar

Perfect Bar, a brand of refrigerated protein bars, released a dark chocolate brownie flavor. You will get a 20% discount if you order before April 12, and if you order the bar during the path of totality on April 8, you get a 50% discount.

Right now, the bars are only available online but will hit the store shelves in the future.

Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut's new pizza deal, Total Eclipse of the Hut, features large pizzas for $12 each. The promotion is applicable for create-your-own (up to 10 toppings) or recipe pizzas. This includes the pizza chain's Thin ‘N Crispy, Hand Tossed Pizza, and Original Pan Pizza. The offer is valid for carryout, dine-in, and delivery at participating locations nationwide on April 8.

Smoothie King

Smoothie King is selling a solar eclipse-themed smoothie called the Eclipse Berry Blitz smoothie (an excellent name in my opinion). Available until April 8, the smoothie is packed with bananas, wild blueberries, and apples along with a blueberry juice blend, white grape, and lemon juice. It doesn’t end there. The smoothie is enhanced with a protein blend and blue spirulina.

When buying this smoothie, you’ll also get a complimentary set of eclipse glasses.


Another drink for celebrating the eclipse is the Blackout Slush Float from Sonic. The smoothie is an interesting flavor combination of dragonfruit and cotton candy, with vanilla ice cream on top. The slush is a dark black color and is available starting today until May 5.
