The pumpkin spice craze has officially gone gourmet.

Joining the ranks of Starbucks, Nestle and Kellogg is Chomp Eatery, a restaurant in Los Angeles that is unveiling a pumpkin-inspired burger for the fall season.

The Cinnamon Crumb Doughnut Fried Chicken Burger is part of the shop's new autumn-inspired menu and it's a pumpkin-spice showstopper.

Chomp partnered with next door neighbor and renowned doughnut shop, DK's Donuts, to create the burger, according to Nerdist, an entertainment news site that first reported the mash-up.

The base of the sandwich is DK's specialty cinnamon spice doughnut, sliced in half and topped with a fried chicken patty, provolone cheese, arugula, tomatoes and, the kicker, pumpkin spice aioli.
