Just say aargh! Who knew that September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Krispy Kreme knows, probably because they invented the day, and if you talk like a pirate on September 19, 2016, you’ll get one FREE Original Glazed doughnut at participating Krispy Kreme locations.
But if you or the kids dress in a full pirate costume, you’ll get an entire one dozen FREE Original Glazed doughnuts.
New York City and metro area Krispy Kreme locations are participating, but not all stores are participating, so it would be wise to phone or stop by first to be sure. Click here for the list of cities nationwide participating in Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Here are the rules from Krispy Kreme:
To claim yer bounty on September 19, ye must:
- Qualifying pirate costumes must include three or more of the following items: NO WEAPONS ALLOWED!

For the first time this year, you can use a custom Krispy Kreme Snapchat pirate filter to digitally ‘dress’ like a pirate. Show your Snapchat image at a participating Krispy Kreme shop to qualify for a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts.
Krispy Kreme’s Talk Like a Pirate Day was created in 2012, and the Snapchat campaign is an organic way to honor the social beginnings of the occasion day.
Two Pirate Doughnuts are also available ahead of Talk Like a Pirate Day. The Pirate Doughnut is a filled doughnut decorated with a pirate face, while the Skull and Crossbones Doughnut is topped with chocolate icing and finished with white icing and a skull candy piece.
Talk Like a Pirate Day hashtags are #TalkLikeaPirateDay and #KrispyKreme. And, of course, always use #nyccheap or @nyccheap when you post across social media platforms.
