While we’re still mourning the Starbucks pumpkin-spice latte shortage, other chain stores have given us a reason to celebrate — more pumpkin-flavored treats.
IHOP is debuting pumpkin, carrot cake, and New York cheesecake pancakes today, and the Krispy Kreme brand is rolling out pumpkin-spice cake doughnut holes and a glazed pumpkin pie in grocery stores (not in the doughnut shops).
And unlike the ever so popular Starbucks pumpkin spice, IHOP actually uses real pumpkins. The chain projects it will serve 3 million pumpkin pancakes throughout the season.
