Plus, we also know everything you need to know about the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and other pumpkin-themed drinks and treats for the upcoming season.

But for now, it looks like Krispy Kreme has got a jump on everyone for pumpkin spice season!

Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Spice doughnuts are releasing earlier than ever on Aug. 8 this year, alongside their other pumpkin spice-themed desserts. This is a whole month earlier than last year, and they’ve even created new fall-themed desserts to celebrate the season:

  • Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed® Doughnut, $2.29: A classic Original Glazed doughnut with a pumpkin spice twist.
  • Pumpkin Spice Original Filled Cheesecake Doughnut, $2.29: A Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed doughnut with creamy cheesecake filling decorated with cheesecake icing.

If you wanted to pick up assorted dozen Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Spice-themed doughnuts, it’ll cost you $16.99 — or $1.42 a doughnut. That’s 38.2% less than if you paid for each individual doughnut.

Of course, you could always wait to see if they give away a free or discounted pumpkin spice doughnut to kick off the fall season. We always know the best Krispy Kreme deals that’ll save you on your doughnuts.
