It has begun! While we all yearn for the cooler temperatures and beautiful colors of autumn, pumpkin spice season creeps ever further into summer. Dunkin’ Donuts, a yearly pumpkin spice standout, kicks things off on August 17. Stores will offer coffee, donuts, and other sweet and savory fall treats. Dunkin’ also teamed up with the famous Goldfish crackers from Pepperidge Farm this year. Beginning September 1, Pumpkin Spice Grahams Goldfish will be available in stores. With flavor notes of both pumpkin and warm spices (which interestingly isn’t always the case), plus donut glaze, these sound like a fantastic autumnal snack.
The promise of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg sounds absolutely delicious. Pair them with your favorite seasonal latte, cold brew, tea, cider, or other pumpkin spice beverage of your choice for the ultimate fall snack. Beginning on September 1, these Pumpkin Spice Grahams Goldfish will be available for purchase anywhere Goldfish crackers are sold. So that means you can definitely get your hands on this seasonal treat. Pumpkin Spice superfans who just cannot wait any longer will have a chance to purchase limited amounts of these Goldfish through TikTok beginning August 18. Happy fishing for these Pumpkin Spice Goldfish.
We wait with bated breath for more pumpkin spice news! Announcements and searches for pumpkin spice products will be spiking in the coming weeks. Here’s hoping they bring back the pumpkin spice ramen, which I couldn’t get my hands on last year. I also haven’t tried pumpkin spice Spam or Kraft mac and cheese. Pepperidge Farm also releases a pumpkin spice version of their popular Milano cookie. This also isn’t the first time Goldfish have gotten a collaboration makeover. Last year, Frank’s RedHot spiced up the popular crackers.
Living in Southern California, I don’t get a lot of the benefits of autumn. Pumpkin spice season is one of the few ways I can tell the seasons are even changing. I can’t wait until my next trip to Trader Joe’s and Target to see what they’re offering this year! What’s your favorite pumpkin spice product?
