It’s the time of year to trick-or-treat yourself to zesty, limited-edition fall goods you need to get your hands (and taste buds) on before they’re gone.
There’s nothing better to start your day off than a cup of coffee—and now you can wake up with a warm pumpkin or maple-pecan-flavored twist on the classic brewed drink. One of the world’s most popular quick service coffee and baked goods chains, Dunkin’ Donuts (though soon to be renamed just Dunkin’) has a spicy lineup of limited edition autumn releases. If you’re here for the namesake, the Apple Crisp Donut with apple filling and caramel icing, the glazed Pumpkin Donut and the colorful Festive Fall Donut will be here all day, just like the rest of the appetizing menu. Of course, those looking for a more savory spread have nothing to fear—the Belgian Waffle Breakfast and Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches served on a croissant boast a beautiful blend of maple, bacon, egg and cheese. Now go on and get one; you know you want to.
Cupcakes. This dessert has a sweet place in everyone’s hearts. But add on candy and Halloween-themed decorations and people go crazy. When it comes to cupcakes, Sprinkles knows exactly how to do it. One of their most popular seasonal items is the BOO box, which contains a dozen cupcakes, each adorned with a ghost and the word “BOO.” This box is the perfect party treat, as friends can pick and choose the cupcake that they wish to eat. Another well-loved flavor is the candy series. Three cupcakes, three candies—it’s a candy lover’s dream. With flavors from Reese’s, Nerds, and Twix, your tastebuds will be thanking you. Pick up some of these cupcakes from the local Sprinkles, and you won’t be disappointed!
Cold Stone Creamery
From ice cream to cookie sandwiches to cake, this parlor has it all. Cold Stone Creamery is celebrating sweater weather with new flavors, each featured in their own ice cream creations. Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream made with Ghirardelli chocolate and the Banana Bread Batter Ice Cream each combine different tastes and textures in delectable, fall-flavored ice cream conglomerates. Along with the new ice cream flavors, the PieScream cake is also now available, featuring layers of decadent ice cream and cake in a graham cracker pie crust. I scream, you scream, we all scream for PieScream.
