CAPITAL REGION, N.Y.– Dunkin’ Donuts is welcoming back one of fall’s favorite flavors, its lineup of pumpkin coffees and baked goods returning to Capital Region restaurants before the end of August.  In celebration of its return, and to get people “pumped for pumpkin”, Alex Roth, of Scotia, was surprised today with $1,000 cash and a special pumpkin-themed prize pack at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 204 South Broadway in Saratoga Springs. Roth is one of 14 people who will be selected as part of the brand’s “Pumped for Pumpkin” program, celebrating the return of the pumpkin lineup to its menus nationwide.

“We are thrilled to be able to create excitement for our fans as we count down to the return of our fall pumpkin lineup,” said Dunkin’ Donuts Field Marketing Manager Eric Stensland. “Dunkin’ Donuts offers one of the largest pumpkin menus of any national restaurant chain and we are delighted that we get to celebrate the return of the popular menu by surprising one of our guests right here in the Capital Region.”

Guests can savor the season with Dunkin’ Donuts’ delicious pumpkin flavored coffee and lattes, served hot or iced. Dunkin’ Donuts’ Pumpkin Macchiato, also served hot or iced, is a handcrafted, layered espresso beverage made with steamed milk and pumpkin flavored swirl, then topped with a double shot of Dunkin’ Donuts’ rich, freshly-brewed espresso.

Dunkin’ Donuts will also bring back baked goods perfect for a fall treat any time of day, including the Pumpkin Donut, a glazed pumpkin cake donut that can also be enjoyed as bite-size MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats. Dunkin’ Donuts’ Pumpkin Muffin is a pumpkin spiced autumn delight topped with white icing and sweet streusel crumbs.

For fall brew-at-home options, Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin flavored K-Cup® pods are available in a box of 14 individually-sized portions, and Dunkin’ Donuts’ packaged Pumpkin flavored coffee is available in a 16 oz. size. Both are available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants as well as online at http://shop.dunkindonuts.com. For a new fall treat, Dunkin’ Donuts has introduced new Pumpkin Spice packaged coffee and K-Cup® pods (in both 10-count and 16-count boxes), available at grocery stores nationwide for a limited time only.
