**This is by no means a comprehensive list of pumpkin doughnuts offered in NYC right now**
Rather this are just three doughnuts I've come across in the past few weeks, the first being the pumpkin spice from Krispy Kreme. An outside crumb trapped by glaze, fall spices, and a good pumpkin flavor made this quite the treat.
Doughnut Plant. It looked very promising, like a pumpkin version of their carrot cake doughnut. Alas, it was all a guise! One bite showed that all pumpkin flavor and color was in the glaze, the actual doughnut was plain.
Dunkin. Bland is the nicest way to put it. Negligible pumpkin flavor or spices, it wasn't enjoyable at all.
Winner, so far: Krispy Kreme
2 Penn Plaza @ Amtrak Rotunda
