Pumpkin spice is a fall time favorite, and the season is just around the corner.
Here, you can find all of your seasonal favorites and where and when to find them.
Pumpkin season at Starbucks starts today
The pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, along with some other seasonal drinks, are available starting today! August 30 is the return of the seasonal fall menu at Starbucks.
In addition to the pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin cream cold foam will return for the fourth year in a row. An updated version of the apple crisp oat milk macchiato will also be available. Starbucks has added some seasonal baked goods like the pumpkin cream cheese muffin and pumpkin scone for a limited time. Their pumpkin loaf will still be available, as it is available year round. Owl cake pops will now be available as well. The treat is made with vanilla cake, buttercream, and purple chocolatey icing, will also be available for a limited time.
Price hikes on your fall time favorites
This year, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks will cost you more than they did last year. A grande- sized latte will cost between $5.45- $5.95, depending on location, but that is about a 9% increase. This isn’t the first item to increase in cost at Starbucks because of inflationary pressures.
Even with chillier weather approaching, 75% of Starbucks total drink sales are cold drinks.
Fall flavors available at Dunkin Donuts too
Dunkin launched their fall menu on August 17. This year on the seasonal menu Dunkin is offering: pumpkin cream cold brew, pumpkin spice latte, as well as pumpkin bakery items and maple sugar bacon.
Dunkin is introducing a new flavor this year– the new nutty pumpkin coffee. It is Dunkin’s Original Blend Iced Coffee mixed with a pumpkin spice swirl, hazelnut flavor shot, and cream.
