It’s September, so your favorite restaurants and cafes are rolling out their seasonal treats.

Krispy Kreme has announced the return of its pumpkin spice original glazed doughnut.

But there’s a catch: The doughnut will only be available for one day.

Pumpkin spice lovers can purchase the doughnut Sept. 8, the North Carolina-based chain announced. The doughnut will be available for the day at participating locations while supplies last.

The arrival of the seasonal snack comes during the quasi-return of another fall treat, Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte.

Some fans of the drink were able to order their favorite beverage Friday morning, but others said they were told it wasn’t available, according to a report from Business Insider.

To add to the confusion, Starbucks began a live stream on its Facebook page Friday, promising to provide information about when the drink will launch in stores. By early afternoon, it still wasn’t clear when the perennial fall favorite will be available.
