Krispy Kreme's New Donut Collection Has Autumn Written All Over It

The first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere is typically September 22nd or 23rd; on the contrary, those dates are also the first day of spring in the Southern Hemisphere (per Britannica). So while half of the world is leaving cold weather behind, the other half is welcoming it. Trees' leaves begin changing, there is less daylight, and consumers everywhere are obsessed with pumpkin and other fall flavors. While some people were over the pumpkin spice craze before it even began, others found comfort and nostalgia in the seasonal flavor. There's actually a scientific reason as to why you may love pumpkin spice so much.

Companies of every degree make sure to capitalize on pumpkin spice. Of course, Starbucks has its iconic pumpkin spice latte, and there's an abundance of pumpkin spice coffee creamers, pancake mix, and cereals. However, there's even pumpkin spice-flavored lip balm, pumpkin spice latte deodorant, pumpkin spice-flavored dental treats for dogs, and pumpkin patch air freshener (via New York Post). Krispy Kreme is one of the many companies that takes advantage of the pumpkin spice craze with a new seasonal donut collection.
