Got Mardi Gras beads? Do you like Krispy Kreme doughnuts? Then the popular doughnut company has a deal for you.
Starting Monday, March 17, you can trade all the Mardi Gras beads you collected this season for the tasty treats.
Each twelve pound bag of beads donated rewards you with a dozen Krispy Kreme confections at the store on Hillcrest Road in Mobile.
The Mardi Gras beads are cleaned and sorted by students at Augusta Evans School in Mobile. The students, in turn, sell the beads to Mardi Gras Mystic Societies and to the general public.
The Beads for Doughnuts exchange runs through Wednesday, March 19.
Krispy Kreme will accept the popular collectibles from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. from March 17 through March 19.
