PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There’s a holiday for everything these days, and Sept. 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
While it’s not certain what that has to do with Krispy Kreme, the chain of doughnut shops is offering a free Original Glazed doughnut for anyone who actually enters a Krispy Kreme location on that day and talks like a pirate.
And if one doughnut just isn’t enough for you, anyone who shows up to a store in full pirate regalia will get a dozen free Original Glazed doughnuts.
According to the company, costume options for those going all out must include at least three of these items: eye patch, pirate hat, bandana, peg leg, parrot on shoulder, pirate shirt/loose white shirt, knickers, leather belt, silver and gold necklaces and earrings, a pirate hook, pointy black boots or ragged brown sandals.
Beware, though – the store won’t allow any weapons.
In the Philadelphia area, hungry wannabe pirates have four locations to choose from. Check the Krispy Kreme website for one that’s convenient to you.
