Salted caramel Thanksgiving turkey
Spiced goat cheese and pumpkin pie

PVDonuts in Providence, Rhode Island, created a pastry that went viral this time last year and the bakery decided to serve up the Thanksgiving specialty again.
Their trademarked “Friendsgiving Donut” consists of a fluffy brioche donut topped with cranberry glaze, strips of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy.
“Each year we throw a Friendsgiving party so we can get together and celebrate with our closest friends, some of which don’t have the opportunity to make it home for the Thanksgiving holiday due to various reasons. This doughnut is our way of showing that same love in a business sense by collaborating with another local business here in Providence,” Paul, an employee at PVDonuts, told ABC News.
Their seasonal donut is only available after 9 a.m. from Nov. 20 to 22.
Momofuku Milk Bar, a bakery located in New York, D.C., Las Vegas and Toronto, is known for its stuffing-flavored croissant filled with turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce.
Jelly Belly is also getting into the Thanksgiving spirit. Their specialty jelly beans come in cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie flavors in their “Holiday Favorites” mixed bag.
Accoutrements offers a tin of Thanksgiving flavored gumballs. The variety pack includes turkey, pumpkin pie and cranberry flavors.
