You know you’re in a full-fledged Pumpkin Spiced Universe when you can’t find a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread at your local grocer. We’re guessing that new pumpkin spiced bread stole its precious shelf space. What next?

Well, ladies, gents, and pumpkin-spiced beings with the autumnal flavor pumping through their veins, we’ve got some more pumpkin-spiced news to report. In September, North Carolina doughnut giant Krispy Kreme announced the special release of Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed Doughnuts. The catch? The fall treat was only available for one day only, on Friday, September 8th.

Fast forward to October, and the gourd hordes have spoken. Krispy Kreme has heeded their call: Thanks to popular demand, the Pumpkin Spice OG doughnuts will enjoy a reprise at the chain this month. For a so-called “Friday Night Spice”offering, Krispy Kreme will sell the doughnuts nationwide on October 6th, 13th, and 20th after 6:00pm. Then, to celebrate National Pumpkin Spice—ahem—National Pumpkin Day, the pastry will be available all day on October 26th.

Krispy Kreme doesn’t typically alter its Original Glazed recipe, so if you want to taste flecks of cinnamon, pumpkiny goodness in your sinker, save the dates. If you’re totally over Pumpkin Spiced Everything, we raise our glasses of Krispy Kreme Cheerwine to toast your Pumpkin Spiced Fatigue (PSF).
