This Doughnut Shop Is Using A Scary Clown To Deliver Doughnuts This Halloween

This is what nightmares are made of.

Trick or treat? This clown is a little bit of both — mostly because he comes bearing doughnuts. Doughnuts? Yes, doughnuts.

Thanks to a doughnut chain called Hurts Donut Co., you can incorporate something spooky into an extra sweet delivery through the month of October. So if you’re looking for a way to scare your friends but, you know, still do something nice for them, this is the perfect option.

Hurts Donut has a running tradition of employing creepy clowns to make donut deliveries during the month of October, and according to an Instagram post, the tradition is alive and well in 2018. You can schedule a delivery with this guy — who looks terrifyingly like Pennywise from “IT” — all month long:

And just in case you needed proof that this is just as horrifying as you’d imagine, video footage from the donut shop’s YouTube channel can serve as evidence:

Hurts Donut Company has 19 different locations in nine states, including Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas, Missouri, Arizona and Wisconsin. You can see if there’s a location near you on their website. Then, call the store for more information about how to schedule this clown delivery just in time for Halloween.

If you don’t happen to live in one of these areas, you don’t necessarily have to miss out on the Halloween fun. Harry & David also offers a box full of Halloween treats you can get delivered to yourself or to a friend. It’s filled with gummy worms, candy corn taffy, popcorn and festive cookies. Pricing starts at $24.99.

If you happen to be in the mood for making Halloween doughnuts from scratch, however, you could also do that. Then you can dress up in a creepy costume to deliver these homemade sweets by hand or pass them out to trick-or-treaters.

The Simple Sweet Life has a recipe for chocolate-y monster doughnuts that are frightfully delicious. Whip these up when you’re in the mood to scare a sweet tooth!

And if you don’t have time to make up a batch of donuts from scratch, A Spicy Perspective has a great tutorial for buying a dozen plain donuts and decorating them to be extra spooky. Store-bought icing, sprinkles, googly eyes and vampire fangs are all you need to deck out a doughnut to fit a Halloween theme:

So whether clown deliveries, homemade recipes or adding fun decorations is more your thing — there’s a way for you to make sure Halloween is just the right mixture of spooky and sweet.
