With autumn in the air, Starbucks is bringing you all the fall tastiness in a cup with their seasonal drinks. I recently tried a few and I have to say they are the perfect taste of the season. Here are my favorites: 

  • The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew – This drink includes Starbucks original cold brew, with vanilla syrup, topped with pumpkin creme cold foam and sprinkled with pumpkin spice. It’s the perfect coffee for someone who doesn’t prefer their coffee to be overly sweet. Starbucks cold brew is a simple beverage, but adding the pumpkin creme foam adds some spice to it and makes it taste a hundred times better. I prefer it iced.
  • The Infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte – This one is a classic. If you haven’t gotten a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks during the fall season, are you really experiencing the taste of fall? This drink can come as a frappuccino, hot, or iced. This coffee has a stronger taste of sweet and pumpkin compared to the cold brew. I personally prefer it hot, especially in the cooler weather, but since it doesn’t taste more like coffee and I don’t like my coffee overly sweet, it doesn’t beat the pumpkin cream cold brew. 
  • White Chocolate Mocha with pumpkin creme cold foam, add caramel drizzle – this one is a fun one. I recently saw a video of someone trying it on TikTok, so I decided to try it and I got hooked. All my friends love it, too, and now it is something they get on a regular basis. The white chocolate mocha is always a good choice and is always around at Starbucks.  Adding the pumpkin cold foam gives you the “taste” of fall, and adding the caramel drizzle just sweetens it up a bit. 
  • Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte – this one is for the tea drinkers.  You get the tastes of nutmeg and cinnamon from the Chai and then the pumpkin sauce combined to make it a perfect drink for fall. 

Some other fan favorites of the season include the salted caramel mocha and caramel apple spice.  There are also the fall treats. The pumpkin bread, the fox cake pop, and the pumpkin cream cheese muffin are just some of the many items on the seasonal menu.  Get them before they’re gone!
