Since this freebie takes a little more effort than usual, I thought I’d give you a little prep time.
Coming up Friday, Sept. 19, Krispy Kreme will be giving away doughnuts by the dozen to anyone and everyone dressed up like a pirate.
You’ll get a dozen free Original Glazed doughnuts for showing up in full pirate apparel, which is defined as wearing at least three of the following: eye patch, pirate hat, bandana, peg leg, parrot on shoulder, pirate shirt, knickers, leather belt, silver and gold necklaces and earrings, pirate hook, pointy black boots or ragged brown sandals.
Leave the weapons -- real and imaginary -- at home, the doughnut chain says.
Not up for pirate impersonation?
Greet your Krispy Kreme server with a pirate greeting and you’ll be rewarded with a single Original Glazed.
