Yes, you read that right. This year, Dunkin’ Donuts (the one that America runs on) has joined forces with Goldfish (the cheesy cracker that smiles back) to create an unprecedented new food collab: Pumpkin Spice Goldfish. My first thought was, “Ew?!” I personally don’t want to mix cheesy flavoring with pumpkin pie spices. But then I dug further and found out that Dunkin’ and Goldfish are actually bringing us Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice Grahams. Not fish, grahams! Phew!!! They’re still fish-shaped, and smiling, but no cheesy crackers are involved (unlike Goldfish’s last savory collab, the Old Bay Goldfish). We can all sleep soundly tonight.
So the new Pumpkin Spice Goldfish are actually grahams…cool, but where does Dunkin’ come in?
Well, first of all, America runs on Dunkin’, so Dunkin’ is always involved. But also, thank goodness, these tasty-lookin’ fall snacks will supposedly taste like donuts! The companies said that these Dunkin’-themed sea creature-impersonating grahams will be infused with “all the flavors of fall including notes of pumpkin, donut glaze, and warm spices—including cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.” The brands recommended pairing these fall crackers with a Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte. If I had a Dunkin’ near me, I would 100% try out that pairing. What better way to take part in the tiny purse trend than to roll up to my local Dunkin’ with three Pumpkin Spice Goldfish in my teeny tiny purse?
This wacky and delicious-sounding new Goldfish flavor will hit shelves on September 1, so be on the lookout! And if you are impatient to try these donut-flavored crackers, you can supposedly get them on TikTok starting today (August 18) while supplies last (alternately, try this link). I do actually want to try these. They run the risk of tasting like regular ol’ cinnamon Graham crackers, but there is also a good chance they will taste exactly like pumpkin spice donuts, and because of this chance, I must find these and investigate. For science!
