10 Surprising Pumpkin Spice Orders at Fast Food Restaurants

Which one will you try first?

Yes, you know about the Pumpkin Spice Latte. But Starbucks is far from the only fast-food chain serving up fall treats this season. There are plenty of fast-food pumpkin treats to go around, from coffee drinks to pumpkin spice desserts.

Even if you don't drink coffee (or just aren't a PSL fan), there are plenty of pumpkin-themed baked goods out there, as well as plenty of pumpkin coffee drinks. From donuts to milkshakes, these are the best fast-food pumpkin offerings out there.

Dunkin' Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte

If you prefer Dunkin' to Starbucks, the chain has its own take on the PSL, with a tasty cinnamon-sugar flavor to boot. The latte is available hot or iced, and it's perfect alongside a Dunkin' pumpkin donut.

Dunkin' has not one, not two, but three types of fall-themed baked goods this year (even more, if you count Munchkins separately). There's the pumpkin donut, the apple cider donut, and the pumpkin muffin, along with pumpkin and apple cider Munchkins. And if you want a fall-ready beverage that's not pumpkin-themed, the chain also has hot and iced apple cider.

Dairy Queen Pumpkin Pie Blizzard

Take pumpkin-themed dessert to the next level with this creamy treat. The soft serve is blended with pieces of real pumpkin pie—this is the real deal, not a "pumpkin spice" imitation.

Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Not feeling the PSL? Starbucks introduced a new pumpkin drink this year that's less sweet than the classic version, and it's perfect for cold coffee lovers. The pumpkin cream cold brew features vanilla cold brew topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam—and, of course, a bit of pumpkin spice topping, too.

McDonald's Pumpkin Spice Latte

This one isn't available in U.S. stores yet, but it's safe to assume it's on the way. McDonald's has offered hot and iced pumpkin spice lattes over the past few years, and the chain's caramel pumpkin spice latte has already launched in Canada. And some fans have tweeted that pumpkin spice lattes have hit their local McDonald's, too. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Starbucks version, this McDonald's drink could be a good one to try.

The easy way to make healthier comfort foods.

Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed Donut

Not to be outdone by Dunkin's fall offerings, Krispy Kreme also has two types of pumpkin donut. There are the pumpkin spice original glazed donuts as well as a cheesecake-filled version.

Krispy Kreme even has a promotion to make sure fans know that their pumpkin spice offerings are the real deal. According to the donut chain, some pumpkin spice offerings have "gone too far." So if you've bought a packaged pumpkin snack you didn't love, you can give it to your local Krispy Kreme in exchange for a donut. Hurry in, though—they're only on sale through September 8.

Culver's Pumpkin Spice Shake
