And what will you do with this second set of doughnuts? The initiative is designed for gifting to family, friends or neighbors safely — by leaving it on their doorstep, perhaps. Each Sweet-or-Treat Original Glazed dozen is individually wrapped and includes a special edition jack-o'-lantern doughnut. For real jack-o'-lantern fun, here are some tips and tricks for carving.

Starting Oct. 5, Krispy Kreme will also introduce a new lineup of monster-themed doughnuts inspired by Frankenstein, Dracula and werewolves. Frankenstein and Dracula are cream-filled (original and raspberry) with various toppings like pretzel and sugar pieces. and the circular werewolf-themed option gets chocolate cream, sugar pieces and cinnamon sugar cereal ears that look like Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Last but not least, we all love free stuff — right? Customers who wear a costume in stores or at the drive thru will get a free doughnut of choice on Oct. 31. Ditch the cat ears and get inspired by the most popular Halloween movie from the year you were born.
