“We’ve asked Scooby-Doo and his friends to solve ‘The Case of the Disappearing Doughnuts’ because it seems like whenever we put out a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, they vanish almost immediately,” Global Chief Brand Officer Dave Skena said in an October 9 press release. Krispy Kreme is encouraging fans to tag their acquisitions on social media with #Scoobtober and #KrispyKreme.
All four of the Scooby-Doo Halloween donuts are currently available in participating Krispy Kreme shops. And if you get a full dozen, they’ll come in a nifty Scooby-Doo-themed box, too. They can also be ordered through the app or website and picked up or delivered where available. If you’re lucky, a grocery store near you will also be carrying six-packs of the donuts.
The limited-edition donuts aren’t the only promotion Krispy Kreme is running this month, either. Not only can you get a free donut by showing up to a participating Krispy Kreme in costume this Halloween, but with Friday the 13th also falling in October this year, the chain is offering a 13th donut for just 13 cents after the purchase of a dozen Original Glazed.
