The Total Solar Eclipse 2024 is almost here, so several retailers and fast-food chains have limited-edition food, deals and freebies in honor of the occasion.

Officially called the Great North American Solar Eclipse, the celestial event is expected to begin on Monday, April 8 at 1:07 a.m. ET in Mexico and end in Maine around 3:30 pm ET.

Those within the path of totality will see — with ISO-certified solar eclipse glasses for safety hopefully — the moon completely cover the the sun and the world go dark, according to NASA. Those outside of the path of totality in the contiguous United States, including New Jersey residents, will still have a partial view, weather permitting.
