Ahoy, all ye doughnut lovers.
If you can walk and talk like a real pirate, today is your chance to claim some real sweet booty.
Surprisingly, Sept. 19 isn’t a quirky food holiday. It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day in the U.S. and Canada and the beloved doughnut chain is giving patrons the chance to score some original glazed doughnuts if they get in on the swashbuckling action.
If you can put on your best pirate accent and growl, saunter up to a Krispy Kreme cashier and ask for some treasure, you’ll get one free donut. But for those in full pirate attire—pick any three of the following: pirate hat, bandana, eye patch, costume hook, pirate shirt, peg-leg, parrot or pirate knickers—Krispy Kreme will give you a full dozen doughnuts.
