Limited-time pumpkin shake available at Baker’s Drive-Thru

Baker's Drive-Thru's pumpkin shakeBaker’s Drive-Thru debuted its limited-time pumpkin shake last week.

The hand-scooped dessert will only be available as long as the ingredient supply holds out, which is expected to be just a few more days.

Baker’s Drive-Thru locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire.
