WELCOME to the 2019 fall season. Since it is “fall szn” and a time to be thankful, many may be starting to think about what they are thankful for. Something I’m thankful for is coffee, especially during autumn. One of my favorite drinks I feel that anyone could enjoy this season is Starbucks’ famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. You can enjoy these drinks either hot or cold, but they taste bomb both ways. If you want to be cozy and feel all snuggly, I’d drink it warm. But, if you’re looking for a quick pick up, I’d drink it iced. 

This seasonal drink consists of all the elements you can possibly think of when it comes to fall. Ingredients for this drink, according to the Starbucks website, consists of: “our signature espresso and milk with the celebrated flavor combination of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, served iced or hot. Enjoy it topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin spices!Ever since this drink made its big comeback this year on August 27, coffee fanatics have been super excited, especially since this is the drink’s earliest debut yet! 

Me being a big fan of this drink & coffee in general, I went to go try it out myself & see if anything was different this year. According to the baristas, this is Starbucks’ most popular drink overall. The drink was great like always, but I started thinking to myself, ‘could there maybe be anything better?’ So I decided to take a trip to another popular coffee spot, Beans n’ Brews. 

I ordered it hot when I went, and I saw that Beans n’ Brews also had a cute snack to go along with the drink that could be purchased separately. It’s a mini toasted waffle, topped with a pumpkin spice that given to you with a side of whipped cream & small little cup of delicious syrup. When I tried this, my world changed. I’ve always loved this coffee place, but who would’ve thought it could top the “main man” of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Starbucks. 

Of course there are other coffee places anyone could try like Dunkin’ Donuts, which is another favorite spot of mine. However, I truly feel as if nothing could top Beans n’ Brews’ natural flavor. With a sensational, seasonal feel at the tip of your tongue with the spice of cinnamon, this treat follows with the greatness of the whip cream & a caramel drizzle, it gives you a taste like never before. All you can taste & feel in your mouth is the fall season. 

It’s almost as if when you close your eyes in that exact moment, you can feel and see yourself at a pumpkin patch or crunching the leaves on your way home on a beautiful autumn afternoon. Something to love about this drink is not only the taste, but the feel that comes behind it. It gives you a cozy feeling of wanting to be at home snuggled up watching spooky movies. Therefore, if you are the stay-at-home type or love trying different drinks, try this one. I’m sure you’ll love it, and if you don’t, there’s always something else on the menu from any of these delightful places that I’m positive will catch your eye!
