If you opt to take it a little further and dress like a pirate, you can score a free dozen Original Glazed donuts for your troubles. Qualifying costumes must include at least three pirate items, such as an eye patch, a parrot (not a live one as I don't think you'll be able to take it into the store), or a bandana.
New this year, you can also digitally "dress" like a pirate using a custom Krispy Kreme Snapchat pirate filter and score the free dozen by showing the Snapchat image at a participating shop.
Krispy Kreme also has two pirate-themed donuts for the ocassion this year: the Pirate Donut and the Skull and Crossbones Donut.
The Pirate Donut is a filled yeast donut decorated with a pirate face, while the Skull and Crossbones donut is a chocolate Kreme-filled yeast donut topped with chocolate icing and decorated with white icing and a skull candy piece.
