The Hudson Valley could be seeing--or should I say tasting--fall a lot sooner than you think.

With the heat and humidity we've been dealing with here in the Hudson Valley it's no surprise that people are over summer. I can't tell you how many social media posts I've seen begging for fall and winter. While I don't condone wishing for snow, asking for fall to get here a little sooner? I can get behind that.

For all you fall lovers and pumpkin spice chasers, get ready. According to a Dunkin Donuts press release that was sent out Thursday from Dunkin headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts, the full pumpkin menu will be available nation wide starting Aug. 29.

However, Dunking Donuts costumers in the New York Metro area (that's all of us in Dutchess, Orange and Ulster counties) will be able to enjoy pumpkin coffees, lattes and macchiatos at participating Dunkin locations starting TODAY.

If memory serves me correctly, the Dunkin Donuts on RT 9 in Hyde Park was one of the first locations last year to serve pumpkin coffees. To make sure, I just gave them a quick call and they do in fact have Dunkin Pumpkin on tap and ready to go.

Are you ready for pumpkin season?! I sure am and I know what I'm doing after work today.
