In an appropriate nod to International Talk Like a Pirate Day on Sept. 19, Krispy Kreme is offering free doughnuts in exchange for a few pirate-inspired tasks.
No, they aren't asking you to swab the deck! All you have to do is say a pirate phrase and you are guaranteed one free Original Glazed doughnut. "Ahoy, mateys," "Arrrrrr" and "Shiver me timbers" will all lead you to a little glazed plunder.
But for those even more dedicated to the day's theme, dressing like a pirate will score you the ultimate treasure -- a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts. That's right! Wear any combination of three of the items listed here, and you'll qualify for a free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts at participating locations:
Pirate Hat, Bandana, Eye-Patch, Costume Hook, Pirate Shirt, Peg-leg, Parrot or Knickers
But Krispy Kreme isn't the only chain getting in on the fun. Long John Silver's is also offering a free piece of Classic Whitefish if you say "ARRRR!" when ordering your meal. And remember, all of these offers are only valid through Sept. 19.
So throw on your peg-leg, gather up your shipmates for the day, and claim your treasures. Cheers to a tasty and enjoyable Talk Like A Pirate Day!
