Hostess knows how crazy people go over pumpkin flavored things once fall starts approaching, so they are releasing a limited-edition pumpkin version of their infamous chocolate cupcake treat! The news has started to spread and people can't contain their excitement.
If this sounds familiar to you, it is probably because in the past, Hostess released a Pumpkin Spice flavored cupcake for the fall season (in addition to sea salt caramel and candy corn). However, those one's were slightly different due to having sprinkles and these new ones have none. Also, pumpkin spice and pumpkin are just different in general!
Based on the look of the packaging, the pumpkin flavored cupcakes are topped with vanilla frosting and contain the same iconic filling as their traditional chocolate cupcakes.
We don't know their official launch date, but the Hostess brand confirmed their future arrival with a festive Instagram post on Tuesday captioned "We couldn’t wait for Fall to get here, so we’re bringing Fall to you 😉." I'm guessing this means we'll be able to find this new treat in a store nearby very soon!
A few shoppers have already found them on store shelves but not in the big name grocery stores.
Hostess also announced a couple other fall treats including Pumpkin Spice Twinkies and Caramel Crunch Donettes.
