When you think of Halloween treats, you probably call to mind buckets of candy. For Krispy Kreme, however, Halloween means one thing: themed doughnuts!

From Oct. 5 through Halloween, you’ll find three Scary Sweet Monster doughnuts on Krispy Kreme’s menu: Frank Monster, Drake Monster and Wolfie Monster.

As you can probably guess, the Frank Monster doughnut is an ode to Frankenstein’s monster and is, of course, green. Filled with cream, it also has sprinkles and pretzel piece bolts decorating the doughnut’s “face.” The Drake Monster celebrates Dracula and is filled with raspberry filling, then dipped in light purple icing and decorated with more icing and sugar pieces.

Lastly, the Wolfie Monster doughnut is a glazed doughnut dipped in chocolate icing and decorated like a werewolf. It also has a sugar piece face and cinnamon sugar cereal ears.

If that’s not enough, Krispy Kreme is also introducing a new deal called “Sweet-or-Treat” Saturdays. Every Saturday from Oct. 10-31, the doughnut shop will offer a $1 Sweet-or-Treat dozen with the purchase of any dozen doughnuts.

Each Sweet-or-Treat box consists of 11 glazed doughnuts, plus a special-edition Jack-o’-Lantern doughnut.

The deal can be redeemed at participating shops in the U.S. via drive-thru and by ordering online for door-side pickup or delivery.

You can also get a free doughnut of your choice if you wear a costume and make your way to your nearest Krispy Kreme location on Halloween. The deal is only good on Halloween in-store or via drive-thru, and you must be wearing a costume.

If you don’t have a Krispy Kreme near you, you can easily make your own Halloween treats at home. Check out these M&M’s Explosion Pumpkin Cookies or this Halloween Candy Cookie Cake that uses two cups of your favorite candy like M&Ms, Reese’s, etc.
