Though we can’t help but love pumpkin spice-flavored everything, all pumpkin spice products are not equal, and with this deal Krispy Kreme is offering, it’s clear that they get it.
For a limited time, you can get one of Krispy Kreme’s pumpkin spice doughnuts for free. You can choose from the classic pumpkin spice glazed doughnut or try their new pumpkin spice filled doughnut, packed with utterly yummy cheesecake Kreme. There’s just one catch: To get this awesome deal, you have to take a disappointing pumpkin spice product you’ve purchased to your local Krispy Kreme location.
For example, perhaps you could turn in the meh pumpkin pie Pop-Tarts you bought on a whim from Target. Not that I would personally know anything about such an impulsive buy that’s now collecting dust in my kitchen pantry.
When you hand over your sad pumpkin product to the Krispy Kreme cashier, in return you’ll get one gratis pumpkin spice glazed or filled doughnut per customer. (Truth be told, you’ll probably get a coffee while you’re at it because it’s a perfect pairing, so this might not be a free trip to Krispy Kreme.)
Krispy Kreme is calling this their Pumpkin Spice Purchase Protection, and as they said on their Twitter promotion for the deal, “Bad pumpkin spice products shouldn’t happen to good people:”
Our #PumpkinSpice Original Glazed Doughnut is back! Also introducing an all new Pumpkin Spice #OriginalFilled for one week only!â

This delicious deal only runs from through Sept. 8, so you need to move quickly if you want to enjoy your free fall-flavored doughnut.
The new pumpkin spice-filled doughnut is already getting major love on social media, with Krispy Kreme fans touting the delicious treat’s bona fides:

And Twitter user @livAdms asks Krispy Kreme why these beauties are only available for one week out of the whole year.
Dear @krispykreme how can you do the Donutqueen like that and offer your beautiful, gorgeous pumpkin spice original filled cheesecake donut only for one week?#donutlover

And, while it is not part of the Pumpkin Spice Purchase Protection promotion, if you are still in the mood for all things pumpkin, you can try the pumpkin spice cake doughnut. This lightly glazed doughnut is the perfect way to get in the mood for autumn.
Do you have a bad pumpkin spice product to turn in? Now’s your chance for redemption!
