        ummm wasn't thinking starbucks but thanks and def nothing inedible!

        1. re: foodwhisperer

          Omg you paid actual $$ for one of those?! All in the name of research i guess....... :)

          1. re: Ttrockwood

            yes, it was research. starbucks bought a bakery for 100 million bucks, that makes horrible product. Their customers are complaining they can't get pumpkin bread and lemon slice cake now. I ant believe I actually ate that gross looking pumpkin cheese croissant. It had similarity to what tex r toast described

          2. re: foodwhisperer

            can we talk about how they look for a second? im sorry im sure some people have a thing for old ladies' private parts, but really . . .

              1. re: ttoommyy

                that one actually looks better/fresher than the one i saw in an actual store downtown last week.

                  Well, it is from their web site so I guess they would try to put the best spin on it there. Still, it does not look appetizing to me at all.

            1. It is probably too early for Rana in the Chelsea market to be making pastas stuffed with pumpkin, but you might want to keep an eye out for it as the season progresses. I've seen other Chowhound threads where places like Scarpetta are mentioned as having pumpkin pastas on their menus later in the season. You might need to call ahead to be sure it is being offered.

              1. pumpkin gelato inside Macy's @ Vivoli Il Gelato, 6th floor.

                eta: you may have to wait until October though.

                    Sundaes & Cones carries a fantastic pumpkin ice cream during the fall, typically beginning in late September/early October.

                  2. BLover33 is like me, loves pumpkin flavor.

                    I make this, even during non-pumpkin season


                    * I tried Noah's Bagels pumpkin products:

                    A. Pumpkin bagel: It's ok, only worth eating once.
                    B. Pumpkin walnut bagel: Better.
                    C: Pumpkin muffin: Relied too heavily on the frosting, a little too sweet.

                      It's always puzzled me why NY'ers would go to a Noah's (in NJ for example) for bagels.

                        Oops, I didn't realize this was a Manhattan board. I live on the West Coast, and actually just discovered Noah's a few months ago. I never bought breakfast before the last few months, but it's across the street from work so I went inside one time to check it out.
