31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Spice Donut (Krispy Kreme)

(Disclaimer: I actually attempted to do this back in 2014 but feel off because of personal shit at the time. In light of that I am going to go back and use the entries from that time in this latest attempt. If you see this at the top it's an indicator that its a repost from 2014 and there will mostly likely be edits from the original mostly for context timing. On with the show.)

When it comes to the basic glazed donut it doesn't get much better than Krispy Kreme. However I've always felt that their cake donuts have been lacking. Dry, heavy, overly sweet.

The pumpkin spice version of their cake donut is really not that much different. While the spices help counter the sweetness of the glaze to an extent, it's still pretty heavy, and will dry your mouth out.

And I'm really upset that this year (2017) they only made them available for a single day. Back on September 8th they sold this donut and a pumpkin spice glaze donut. They were both legitimately good and I'm really disappointed that we won't get an entire season of them.

I'm gonna have to go try the Dunkin Donuts take on this.

Do you have any pumpkin treats/sweets/drinks recommend?
