Is your biggest Halloween fear that you somehow won’t find quite enough sugar this year?

Calm yourself: We’ve found a sweet solution.

Krispy Kreme’s offering a free donut to folks in the holiday spirit this Halloween. And all you’ve got to do to get it is show up in costume and say “please.”

How to Get a Free Krispy Kreme Donut This Halloween

Just hit up your local Krispy Kreme on Monday, Oct. 31 (in costume, of course) to score your free donut. No purchase is necessary for this trick-free treat — and yes, the limited-edition Halloween zombie donuts are included!

The deal is only good on Oct. 31 — so even though you may be planning most of your Halloween adventures for the preceding weekend, you’ll have to suit back up on the actual day if you want your freebie.

The offer excludes grocery and convenience store locations, as well as shops in Connecticut, Iowa, Nebraska and Gainesville, Florida. (Sorry, Gators!)

If you nab one of the limited-edition donuts, snap a photo to share with the hashtag #scungry, which is apparently a portmanteau of scary-hungry. (Which sounds a lot like “hangry.” Which I’m kind of getting while writing this post.)

Tweet your pastry portrait with the tag, and you and your donuts might end up featured on Krispy Kreme’s site.

I’m not sure how the selection algorithm works, but just in case, you’d better make sure your costume’s on point!

Your Turn: Will you knock on Krispy Kreme’s door for a free treat this Halloween?
