Best pumpkin bread?

OK, I'm not going to go crazy with this like the pumpkin ice cream (Carvel, it turns out has a nice pumpkin ice cream, btw).

However, here's some pumpkin bread I just happened to try

They win so far. Moist pumpkin bread with lots and lots of raisins

No raisins, but moist. Ginger was the big flavor here

From last year's post ... lot's of nuts and ginger. I had another piece after my cold ... it turns out there wasn't a much pumpkin flavor and it was a bit dry.

House of Bread (HOB
)Didn't like it at all. It was too dry with not enough pumpkin flavor. Samples always available, so you can judge for yourself.

In favor of HOB, I did try Semi-freddi's loaf of sliced white bread, which is excellent. The crust is crunchy rather than soft and the texture of the bread is quite nice ... but ... HOB is the better loaf for me, more yeasty and like the como bread at Downtown Bakery in Healdsburg.

So anyone have a favorite pumpkin bread source ... and if Sketch makes anything baked that is pumpkin-based, please post since I'll make a beeline there.
