Pumpkin Spice might not be Anthony Bourdain’s cup of tea, but here in Toronto where temperatures dip in the fall, we’re more than happy to embrace the seasonal sensation.

Rather than getting the syrupy, sweet Starbucks staple, we’ve sussed out these indie alternatives. And now we present you with Pumpkin Spice treats in all their various forms -from frozen to baked.

Here’s just a handful of pumpkin-laced sweets that we’re working our way through this fall.
