What would you do if a creepy clown showed up to your home or work with a box of doughnuts? Scream? Laugh? Cry? Run and hide?

Hurts Donuts in Tempe, the 24-hour doughnut shop known for its over-the-top doughnut creations, is bringing back its yearly Halloween promotion where people can order a dozen doughnuts and have them delivered by a mask-wearing clown.

It announced the news on its Facebook page.

Customers can call the store at 480-765-2101 to purchase doughnuts and set up a delivery. If no one answers, the store asks people to leave a message and they will return it.

The cost for doughnuts and delivery has increased from $35 to $50 this year.

In a text message, manager Blake Tendick said the cost increase was due to hiring more clowns this year, which will allow them to make more deliveries more often and throughout the Valley. In past years, they have had to restrict deliveries to specific parts of the Valley on specific dates.

For those who just want some doughnuts without the creepy clown, Hurts Donut is located near the Loop 101 and University Drive in Tempe.
