From free doughnuts to free and discounted meals, Halloween treats from retailers are abundant this year.

While kids are the major beneficiaries, there are a few that don’t require you to be among the under-12 set or dressed in costume.

Here’s a wrap-up of Halloween treats in the Triangle:

• Reserve one Halloween movie on Redbox through Oct. 31 and get 50 cents off a second movie rental. Get the details HERE.
• Pizzas are $5 on Halloween at Carrabba’s restaurants. Build your own 10-inch pie or select a favorite off the menu. For five bucks more, get an Italian salad for two.
• Stop by a Sonic Drive-In and corn dogs are 50 cents all day long on Halloween.
• At Moe’s Southwest locations in the Triangle, get a free Chimichurri burrito when you dress up as your favorite “dearly departed rocker.” The freebie offer is valid Oct. 31 through Saturday, Nov. 2 as part of the chain’s Day of The Dead Musicians celebration.
