Krispy Kreme’s Fall Menu Is Arriving at Locations Next Week and It Includes 2 New Pumpkin-Flavored Items
It’s no secret that we attach certain foods and flavors to specific seasons. We may enjoy peppermint drinks in red cups for Christmas, and anything chocolate-flavored for Valentine’s Day, but the fall months are all about pumpkin spice flavors. And while usually we don’t see those tasty flavors hit the market until about September, it seems they are being ushered in earlier than ever this year.
Leading the pack with its pumpkin spice collection for the season while still in the height of summer, Krispy Kreme is giving fans something deliciously worthy of discussing. Beginning August 8 — which is an entire month earlier than last year — there will be a bunch of pumpkin-flavored donuts and coffees hitting their menu. And yes, you’ll be seeing a few new items, too.
New this season will be the Pumpkin Spice Latte Swirl Doughnut — obviously inspired by the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte that started the flavor trend in the first place — and a new Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee, because it is still the middle of summer, after all!
“Sure, pumpkin spice is generally associated with fall, but true fans of the flavor will agree that August is close enough!” said Dave Skena, global chief brand officer for Krispy Kreme, in a press release. “So, we’re pulling fall forward, enabling our guests to indulge and enjoy early with delicious pumpkin spice doughnuts and drinks, including our Pumpkin Spice Latte, which you can get iced or frozen, by the way.”
The new Pumpkin Spice Latte Swirl Doughnut is a pumpkin spice-flavored doughnut that is dipped in a sugary pumpkin spice blend and topped with both a swirl of vanilla and coffee buttercream. It joins a lineup that includes the returning Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed Doughnut — a classic Original Glazed doughnut with a pumpkin spice twist— and the Pumpkin Spice Original Filled Cheesecake Doughnut. The latter of the two features a Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed Doughnut overflowing with a creamy cheesecake filling that is then decorated with cheesecake icing.
For those looking for a more simple pleasure, the Pumpkin Spice Cake Doughnut will be calling your name. The spiced old-fashioned cake doughnut is covered in glaze and is a tasty treat for those looking for nostalgia.
But that’s not all. On the beverage front, Krispy Kreme fanatics can count on the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte — a latte flavored with pumpkin pie sauce, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin spice seasoning. It’s offered up hot, iced, or frozen — which is very helpful, as it’ll be enjoyed for a seasonal transition. Along with the classic sip, Krispy Kreme is also releasing the new Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee, which is simply iced coffee blended with pumpkin pie sauce.
While it does seem a bit early for pumpkin spice to be out there, Krispy Kreme is not the first to announce the flavor’s speedy arrival. Pumpkin Spice Oreos are also returning this month and are set to hit shelves by mid-August.
