Wear a Costume, Get Free Food at This Fast-Food Chain

You don't even need to leave the car to get this treat!

Halloween is already a day filled with sweet treats and spine-chilling tricks. But one enchanting deal is about to make breakfast on this day even more bewitching. If you wear a costume on Oct. 31, you can get a free Halloween Donut at Tim Hortons drive-thru!

The Halloween Donut is a yeast ring donut with a decadent chocolate fondant topping and festive orange sprinkles. If the free holiday version is anything like the regular Chocolate Dip Donut on the permanent menu, it won't be a scary way to start your day. While there are 7 grams of fat or 29 grams of carbs in the latter, there's nothing too ghostly about the 190 calories and 8 grams of sugar. (Donuts aren't the only sweet rolls we love — here are 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.)

Because this special deal is only available through a U.S. drive-thru on Oct. 31, it won't work with mobile, delivery, or take-out orders. To redeem, all you have to do is place your order through the drive-thru at a participating location, and every person in costume in your car may get a free treat. This creates a somewhat contactless experience that better ensures the safety of all customers and employees.

"We know that Halloween will look different for so many families this year," Ricardo Azevedo, regional president of Tim Hortons U.S., says, "and we want to be a place where guests can celebrate their favorite traditions safely."

Without dressing up, the Halloween pastry costs $0.99. Want to save even more? Tims Rewards members get $0.99 hot or iced coffee every day. If you pair that deal with a free donut on Oct. 31, you've got a cheap way to celebrate one of the most wonderful days.

More than 700 of the chain's 4,800 total locations are in 14 states, mainly in the Northeast.
