When I say "pirate," it conjures up a very specific set of images. A beard and moustache, perhaps an eye-patch or a peg leg. A tricorn hat and a parrot. Above all, you might be struck by the very particular way pirates talk. Or should I say, "taaaaaaawwwrrrrrrkkkkk."
Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so avast ye scurvy dogs and land-lubbers all! But just because you're getting a little salty doesn't mean you can't enjoy a little sweet. This is where Krispy Kreme comes in.
The makers of arguably the best donuts ever know that every pirate needs is a belly full of sweet, fried dough. They are here to help! Krispy Kreme is giving away a dozen donuts to anyone who dresses like a pirate for their visit to the store. Don't have the wardrobe for it? Talking like a pirate will still earn you one glazed donut.
In the spirit of the day, I've come up with a list of 5 different types of donuts a pirate might hunger for.
1. The Scalawag
This is a regular donut, only you throw it in the face of your enemy to challenge them to fisticuffs before eating it.
2. Davy Jones' Locker
This is a casket of donut holes buried at the bottom of the sea. Collecting them is half the fun!
3. The Mermaid
A fish-flavored crueller. It is an acquired taste.
4. The Busted Barnacle
A jelly donut that someone has stepped on.
5. The Yo Ho Ho Ho
A regular glazed donut that has soaked in rum for a full day.
What other types of donuts would a pirate order?
