FREE DONUTS @ Krispy Kreme!

We are 9 days early, but I had to let you all know about this crazy, awesome day ahead of time! What’s better than talking like a pirate? What’s better than dressing like a pirate? To answer my first question, a free Krispy Kreme glazed donut. To answer my second question, a DOZEN free Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. YES.

Find your nearest location here and start planning. Only interested in one donut? Greet your friendly Krispy Kreme worker with an “Ahoy Matey!”

Dressing like a pirate is a TAD more complicated. You need to be in FULL pirate costume (or, at least 3 of the following pieces):

  • Eye Patch
  • Pirate Hat
  • Pirate Flag
  • Bandana
  • Peg Leg
  • Parrot on Shoulder
  • Pirate Shirt / Loose white shirt
  • Knickers
  • Leather belt
  • Silver and gold necklaces and earrings
  • Pirate Hook
  • Pointy black boots or ragged brown sandals

Sounds like a challenge to me! Little does Krispy Kreme know that I have about 13 years worth of Halloween costumes from over the years stowed away.

Document your adventures using #TalkLikeAPirate and enjoy your free treats!

Step Up Your PUMPKIN Game With Dunkin’ Donuts

Tell you what – nothing makes me more ready for fall than pumpkin ANYTHING. I am a total sucker for the entire pumpkin marketing scheme and this post proves it.

According to mediapost.com, Dunkin’ Donuts jumped on the pumpkin trend pretty early on with products like pumpkin spice donuts + pumpkin muffins in 2003. Over the years, they’ve come to incorporate pumpkin iced coffee, hot coffee, lattes, donuts, Munchkins donut holes, muffins, k-cups, and even packaged coffees. Seems they have pretty much pumpkin’d about everything, so they’re stepping up their game with this years marketing scheme!

This week, Dunkin’ Donuts is hosting “Pumpkin Peeks” where the first 500 guests to 6 strategic locations (original restaurant in Quincy, Massachusetts, units in Santa Monica and Culver City, CA to commemorate their 1-year anniversary in California, and 3 top pumpkin ordered chains, Biddeford, Maine, Norwich, Connecticut, and Hyde Park, NY) will be offered a FREE hot or iced pumpkin coffee, along with other pumpkin-themed giveaways. If you live close to ANY of these areas, get to your local Dunkin’ Donuts and capitalize on this!

In addition to this, and especially if you aren’t in one of these areas, Dunkin’ is running a “PumpkinGrams” promotion, where fans can post about their pumpkin coffees and lattes on Twitter and Instagram, using #DDPumpkin and #Sweepstakes – qualifying them for chances to win digitally delivered Dunkin’ gift cards.

Keep an eye out, everyone! Pumpkin menu items are being introduced over the next two weeks, and will be available nationally by August 31st. FALL IS COMING!
