Custard selection for OCT at Shake Shack

The custard selection for this month @ Shake Shack looks very interesting. Has anybody tried any of these flavors and cares to comment? I'm specifically looking for PUMPKIN treats during the month of October. They can be in the form of gelatos, custards, cookies, cakes, breads, foams, I don't care as long as they have *pumpkin* as an ingredient. TIA.

    1. I am eating a Hopscotch concrete with pumpkin spice custard from Shake Shack right now. My co-worker tasted it and said it was a really solid choice. I need to confess that it really is one of the most delicious flavored custards I have ever had. GO GET IT!

      I really want to know what the Shakenstein flavor is though. They only serve it on Sunday :(

        Apparently it's a green colored custard with chocolate cake and marshmallows. The actual custard FLAVOR could be lime, pistachio, or even mint perhaps.
        Your guess is as good as mine. Apple Cinnamon Raisin for Saturday looks good too.

          Actually, I had the Apple Cinnamon Raisin a few weeks ago and didn't love it. I'm crazy for anything cinnamon, but the apple flavoring was just too tart for me. The raisins helped cut that flavor a bit, but overall it just didn't work for me.

            I love cinnamon too, but I'm definitely not a fan of tart apples at all. I prefer the likes of Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious, and Honeycrisp apples. Also, since I don't love raisins all that much either, I really appreciate the heads up here.

              I also like cinnamon but the idea of Apple Cinnamon Raisin ice cream just does not appeal to me at all! That said, I did try the orange fennel custard yesterday. The flavor was pretty subtle and delicious! I've been craving some more ever since!
