When Pumpkin isn't Pumpkin

If you know me well, you would have locked me up
in a padded room and thrown away the key!

"You can have the donuts," I said to my husband,
"they did something different this year and they 
don't taste the same."  

My husband asked me to explain further.
Well, not really, but in my mind he did so I continued.
"The pumpkin donuts are my favorites and this year
they taste more cinnamony.  Not bad, but not pumpkin,"
I said as I tried a second one just to see if I was right.
 Yep, I'm right.  Just not like last year.

My husband takes a donut of his own.
He chews and thinks about it.
Then, he looks right at me and says something like, 
"That's because they are CIDER donuts."


I guess that explains it.
I even looked on their website.
There are three types of Fall donuts.
You have to READ the BOX, they all look alike.

See what I mean, in the photo.
The packaging is the same.
They were on the same display, next to each other.
I was in too much of a hurry and I didn't read the box.

As you can see, I have two boxes and one is pumpkin!!!
I stopped in the next day and got the correct package.

Yummmmmm !!

I can't count the number of times I have looked a something in the store, and would have SWORN I picked up what I was looking at; only to get home and find something just slightly different.

Can't stand deceptive packaging, either.

Hope you all have a wonderful, blessed weekend, Kathy.

Those really look delicious. I've never tried them but I plan on it now but I better read the labels. Thanks for the post. Happy Fall!!

Don't feel bad I have done the same thing. LOL

Pumpkin donuts would be good. I'd even try the Cidar ones. We don't have anything like that here that I know of. Just regular donuts.

But variety is the spice of life!
