You could score a free pumpkin-flavored coffee this week!

Stop everything and get to the nearest Dunkin’—or should we say Pumpkin’? Yep, that's right: This Wednesday, August 14, Dunkin’ will temporarily rename eight locations to Pumpkin’, and those eight stores will have early access to the chain’s seasonal menu of fall baked goods and pumpkin-flavored beverages. The company hasn't released the official locations yet, but we do know that the first letter of each city will spell out P-U-M-P-K-I-N. If you're lucky enough to live near a participating location, you can also score a freebie; the first 250 customers at each location can pick up a free small hot or iced pumpkin coffee.

If your local Dunkin’ isn’t participating in the early release, don’t fret! The full fall menu will roll out nationwide on August 21, and include two brand new menu items. The first is a Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte made with pumpkin, cinnamon, and espresso. It'll be available hot or iced—both varieties come topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a cinnamon-sugar topping. 

Second up is an all-new donut flavor: The new Apple Cider Donuts are apple-flavor cake donuts tossed in a cinnamon-sugar mixture—and this flavor will be available as Munchkins, too. Pick up a baker’s dozen for the office or grab a bag of donut holes for Sunday breakfast with the family. 

Dunkin’ is also bringing back fall menu items from years past: You can find pumpkin-flavored coffee, pumpkin donuts, and pumpkin muffins in stores also starting August 21. If Dunkin's past seasonal flavors (like the brownie batter donuts and Peeps-flavored coffee) are any indication, these treats will be an instant hit. (Or, if you just can't wait that long for pumpkin-flavored goodness, our slow-cooker pumpkin spice latte is easy to make at home.)

Summer weather won't stop us from indulging in these fall flavors: We'll be first in line for an iced pumpkin coffee next week!
