Fall is upon us. To me, it means so many things…cooler weather, shorter days, kids back in school, pumpkin picking, and the fall menu and decorations at your local Starbucks. I think you know which one of these is the one that’s dearest to my heart, right (read: Starbucks)?
I love the change in seasons and the changes in the food and drinks at Starbucks. It just really sets the tone for me when the fall comes rolling in. You just know that the summer is pretty much over and the season is changing. All those fantastic goodies and coffees are always so good and fee so timely. Celebrate the season with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, Pumpkin Scone and Washington Apple Pound Cake. These goodies really pair so well with the drink of your choice, don’t they??
Aside from the yummy food, fall brings with it a number of new drinks and coffee blends, too. While the coffeehouse experience that Starbucks has just about mastered is such an integral part of the experience, sometimes you just don’t have the time or the desire to head to the local store. You just want it ready right in your own kitchen. How can you beat getting your Starbucks fix without even brushing your teeth?? LOL.
Thankfully, the fall goodies at your local are available to you in your house, too. For example, you can pick up some of that roasted Fall Blend Ground Coffee goodness so you can brew and entire pot at home and make your house at least smell like your local Starbucks. The new blend is available in stores and will be available soon online, too. Of course, you can really go for complete convenience with some ready to drink, bottled Iced Coffee, Caramel please!
While all of these are fantastic, you know what’s coming, don’t you? The big daddy of all the seasonal fall goodies has to be the Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL for the cool kids). For so many coffee drinkers, and even non-coffee drinkers, PSL is the best that Starbucks has to offer. Great flavor and just a warm, cozy feel really make it a winner for the masses. Fortunately, you can pick up some PSL Via Instant Coffee if you don’t have time to brew a pot. It literally takes seconds. Don’t worry, this is really good instant!! It even has the milk already mixed in…crazy!
Oh yeah, don’t forget about all the awesome drinkware at Starbucks, including fab fall cups, mugs, and tumblers. It’s the perfect complement to your change of seasons fall vibe.
There’s nothing like on that first crisp night like lighting a fire, grabbing a hot coffee, lighting one of my pumpkin scented candles, and watching a movie or reading a book. It really can’t get much better than that. Thankfully, we can all get a taste of Starbucks without having to blow out that candle or take that robe off.
