Releasing a pumpkin themed offering is pretty much standard for the season, especially if their emphasis is on sweet desserts. Golden Spoon, Dairy Queen, Krispy Kreme and TCBY have all come out with a treat incorporating the giant orange vegetable. Cold Stone’s version is simply titled Pumpkin Ice Cream. Pictured above is the seasonal creation using the pumpkin ice cream flavor: Pumpkin Pie in the Sky. It blends super premium pumpkin ice cream with graham cracker pie crust, caramel sauce and whipped topping. The seasonal ice cream flavor also highlights the Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie ($10), which has pumpkin ice cream nestled in a graham cracker pie crust garnished with Bettercreme rosettes, cinnamon and chocolate roses. Pumpkin is hype.
