2018 Fall Drinks and Treats
Happy First Week of Fall! Fall not only means pumpkin patches, cozy flannels, and apple picking but the official start of PSL season. (And if for some reason you don’t know what PSL stands for, you may need to question your love for all things fall and pumpkin spice latte). You can pretty much find PSL anything these days, and your favorite coffee shops are no exception. Check out the fall menu at Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts.
Starbucks may have the most famous PSL, which has been around for 15 years. It seems like PSL season at Starbucks starts earlier every year – it’s been available since August 28th. The Latte is also available blended or iced. If pumpkin spice drinks aren’t your thing, Starbucks is also selling Pumpkin Spiced Cookie Straws. Available at grocery stores along with the Pumpkin Spice K-Cups, the cookie straws are perfect for pairing with a hot cup of coffee.
Starbucks also added three new sweet treats to their menu for the fall. Everyone on Instagram has been talking about the Apple Cider Doughnut. Flavored with apple cider and topped with sweet vanilla frosting and turbinado sugar for a crunch, this new addition to the menu is already very much well loved.
Two new muffins are also available this season. Check out the Maple Pecan Muffin and Morning Muffin. The former being more like a sweet dessert or snack, and the latter being a hearty muffin made with rolled oats, zucchini, walnuts, raisins, and more.
Dunkin’ Donuts also started offering their seasonal drinks and treats early this year – August 27th! They introduced their Apple Crisp Donut – a yummy sweet apple filled donut topped with caramel icing and crispy oats. Talk about all the flavors of fall in a donut!
Along with this new addition, beloved favorites such as the Pumpkin Donut and Pumpkin Muffin are back! The Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich and Belgium Waffle Breakfast Sandwich are also on the menu.
What about the coffee? Dunkin’ Donuts pairs the Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich with the Maple Pecan Iced Coffee. The pumpkin flavored coffee is available as well. Check out your nearest Dunkin’ Donuts to try out the iced or hot coffees and sweet treats!
Enjoy the crisp fall air with a sweet drink and treat in hand. Before you know it, it’ll be time for peppermint mochas and gingerbread everything!
