Crisp air. Orange and yellow leaves falling. Chocolate candies everywhere. Ghosts, goblins and Halloween decor all around. All those mean that fall is here! Aside from all of the beautiful outdoor scenery and Halloween festivities, one of my favorite things about fall is the pumpkin seasonal drinks! Indeed, tis’ the season of pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin iced drinks. Each year, it seems more and more places are offering more specialized pumpkin drinks.
Starbucks remains to be one of the most popular places offering pumpkin flavored drinks. As early as end of September, I have witnessed people line up and ask for their pumpkin spice lattes. The Starbucks pumpkin spice latte is not only tasty, they are pretty in presentation as well!
Equal in popularity to their hot pumpkin spice latte is Starbucks’ pumpkin spice frappuccino. Frappuccinos are always popular but the pumpkin version is one of their best sellers!
Similar to Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf also has hot and cold pumpkin drink offerings. For their hot drinks, they have a pumpkin latte and for their cold drinks, they have a pumpkin ice blended. The ice blended has a very distinct taste of pumpkin.
Jamba juice has their own version of icey pumpkin treats via their pumpkin smash smoothie. It is a mix of pumpkin spice base, frozen yogurt, soymilk, cinnamon and nutmeg.
At Whole Foods, shoppers can enjoy a hot coffee pumpkin style! Whole Foods makes a pumpkin spice latte version of their allegro coffee.
The newest place to offer pumpkin drinks this year is McDonald’s. They have seasonal pumpkin spice latte that is a great match for their new baked pumpkin pie. It is one of the more affordable pumpkin drinks out there.
Whether you are craving for a warm beverage to enjoy during the cold mornings or a cold icey treat for an afternoon sugar rush, there are plenty of pumpkin flavored drinks all around! It’s not hard to “fall” for any of these drinks because they all have a that yummy pumpkin taste. Sweet, tasty and full of flavor, it’s a pumpkin crush this season!
