Dunkin’ is proving it’s never too early for pumpkin spice.

The coffee and doughnut chain released its new fall lineup, featuring favorites like pumpkin-flavored coffees, donuts and muffins. 

Dunkin’ also unveiled new seasonal treats like apple cider donuts and munchkins and its signature cinnamon sugar pumpkin latte. 

The fall-inspired array of goodies officially launch Aug. 21, while still in the heart of summer. 

But eight restaurants across the U.S. are celebrating a week early. Those stores are rebranding from “Dunkin’” to “Pumpkin” and will serve free pumpkin-flavored coffees on Wednesday. 

Dunkin’ hasn’t revealed the participating locations yet, but the first letters of seven of the cities spell out the word “pumpkin.”
