We know what the calendar says, but it doesn't matter - pumpkin spice is back at Dunkin' Donuts, earlier than ever.

There's nothing that says fall quite like pumpkin...everything. Dunkin' Donuts doesn't realize that in Central New York, we try to hold on to summer for as long as possible, because here we are, in August, and pumpkin spice is back.

Earlier than ever, Dunkin' Donuts is announcing the return of their pumpkin menu for the fall. Fall is scheduled to arrive at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide by August 21, led by their new Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte - built to compete with Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte (which, btw, is scheduled to return on August 27, early for their stores as well.)

That's not the only pumpkin-related item you'll find on their menu. Dunkin' will also be offering pumpkin-flavored coffee and K-Cups, apple cider Munchkins and donuts, and pumpkin donuts and muffins.

Look, we're all about pumpkin and cider WHEN IT'S ACTUALLY FALL. For now, we'll stick with our plain old coffee and glazed donuts while wearing our flip flops until the first snow flies, thankyouverymuch.
