Dunkin's pumpkin donuts

I don't like the donuts at Dunkin' Donuts, except this time of year with the pumpkin donut. It's probably like the McRib, you like it because you only get it once a year. Too bad Dunkin' changed their recipe. I used to love the old jelly stick, when they rolled and cut the dough by hand. The new recipes are horrible. However, the pumpkin donut is pretty tasty regardless.

  1. Dunkin's pumpkin donut is different this year. Not as good. Still not horrible though. The pumpkin donut and their sour cream donuts are the only ones I'll get.

    1. For a pumpkin donut, I like the version at Krispy Kreme.

        FYI- the Sour Cream and Pumpkin donuts at KK are the same donut....they just rename the Sour Cream ones to Pumkpin for the holiday season and then switch the name back in January.

        That is also why they never sell "both" at the same time ;)

          I am no KK expert, but I find it unlikely that the sour cream and pumpkin spice donuts are the same donut. Like Dunkin, KK most likely stops selling the sc when they offer the pumpkin one.

            They are the same. I asked the store manager once and it was confirmed.

              Our Dunkin Donuts sells both at the same time and they are definitely different donuts at this location. I've even bought them together in the same box and taken then in to the office. Not the same at all. Similar, but not the same.

                Leepa- We are talking about KK. I have no idea about DD.

            uh, what?!? i just had both the other day. yes, that's right, the ontario mills kk had both pumpkin spice and sour cream at the same time. they are not the same. i think you've been played.

        2. I dont like it for the simple fact that they stop selling the blueberry cake donuts while they are selling the pumpkin ones.

          1. I tried one the other day...thought it was terrible....took one bite and threw it out....
