It’s October, and Starbucks has got its fall menu ready to go! Every year, Starbucks releases its delicious, pumpkin spice-flavored drinks and pastries. They tend to bring back favorites from previous years but also try to spice things up a little by introducing a few new surprise drinks. 

Following tradition, Starbucks has put its crispy Pumpkin Spice Latte, as well as its icy and cool Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew back onto its menu. They have additionally brought back its scrumptious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins and Pumpkin Scones. 

With the return of its fall favorites, customers’ excitement for the new season has only increased. Kelly O’Sullivan, a writer of a blog called The Pioneer Woman, has stated, “The arrival of all things pumpkin spice is like a signal, telling everyone to dust off their favorite fall coats, break out their best fall soup recipes, and get ready to indulge in some seriously sweet fall treats.” Starbucks’ fall drinks have gotten their customers in the festive fall mood as they have given them that crispy, cool, nice fall feeling. 

Starbucks has many people feeling festive as it has introduced a unique flavored drink this year. “It’s unlike anything the coffee company has created before,” stated O’Sullivan. In the past when it came to coming up with new drink ideas for its fall menu, pumpkin spice was Starbucks’ main ingredient since “pumpkin spice products are perfect for the pumpkin lover in your life,” according to Taste of Home, an online website. However, this year Starbucks has taken an unthinkable route by releasing an apple-flavored drink, resulting in greater customer satisfaction as non-pumpkin spice lovers have had the opportunity to try Starbucks’ Apple Crisp Macchiato, which has been more suitable to their taste buds. 

Starbucks’ fall menu won’t be here forever, so go kick off your fall with their luscious flavored drinks and desserts as there is now something for everyone to enjoy.
