It’s finally that time of year again. The weather in “The Ville” is beginning to get more manageable (kind of, not really) and people are making the transition from Nike shorts and frat tanks to jeans and sweaters.
Not only does the cooler weather bring change in clothes, it brings the inevitable…pumpkin spice latttes (PSL). Everywhere. Everyone. If you’re not a fan of the PSL but still enjoy the cinnamon-pumpkin taste of fall, we got you covered. Here are five places in Gainesville to get your pumpkin spice fix without coffee.
1. Midnight Cookies
One of their current featured flavors is the Mocha Pumpkin Spice cookie. A blend of cocoa and traditional spices will definitely give you your fix of fall flavors. This cookie is even vegan friendly. Just wow.

#pumpkinspice is back! In shops starting today, Pumpkin Spice and Salted Caramel Latte doughnuts ?? A photo posted by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (@krispykreme) on Aug 31, 2015 at 8:06am PDT
The Pumpkin Spice Cake doughnut is made daily and coated in Krispy Kreme’s famous sugar glaze. It’s only made and sold for a limited time, so take advantage of this seasonal special (so, eat a dozen of these babies).
