“How thoughtful,” you think.
Maybe you’ve been anticipating what flavor(s) they picked for you. (If they didn’t tell you in an effort to entice you to fall for the trap –er, I mean, act of kindness.) Do they even know your favorite(s)? Or would you trust them to surprise you? (After this, you may never trust them again…)
Because that’s when you see him. The delivery driver. Your blood runs cold. This seemingly thoughtful gesture has just taken a sinister turn.
What would you notice first? His distinctive bouquet of red balloons? His painted white face? His sharp, pointy teeth? Or the box of donuts?
Would you accept donuts from Pennywise, the scary clown from Stephen King’s It?
I recently learned of this creepy clown donut delivery service from a post on Dread Central, who reported Hurts Donut will offer it this October.
As I was doing some research into Hurts Donut, however, I discovered this service isn’t something new. This has become a Halloween season thing for them. They’ve been doing it since at least 2017.
Hurts Donut has 19 locations in these ten states:

Would you send somebody a scary clown donut delivery? Would you like to receive one?
