Pumpkin Spice Season is Back––What Has Starbucks Got to Offer?

The iconic PSL secured Starbucks a spot on the list of things to do in autumn. How else would you start fall? The leaves change colors, the air gets breezy, and you always, always must have a pumpkin spice latte in your hand.

Personally, I have never been a fan of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. I am a fan of pumpkin spice anything else––donuts, cupcakes, bread, bundt cakes, milkshakes. 

But something about the PSL just never hit the mark for me. It didn’t have enough spice or autumn.

Then the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew came along.

The picture was what sold me first. The foam creme on top of the cold brew looks so enticing and inviting. Despite the bad history Starbucks and I had with pumpkin spice, I was tempted to try. I made the right choice.

The drink typically comes with the nitro lid, which I genuinely appreciated a lot. Not only is it more environmentally-friendly, but it helps perfectly balance the delicious pumpkin cream and cold brew when you put it towards your mouth to drink. Creamy, sweet, but with the kick of the cold brew.

Over time, the cream and cold brew slowly mix together, and the sweetness of the pumpkin cream starts fading into the coffee, making the drink not too sweet.

Overall, I could confidently say that Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is one of my top drink choices at Starbucks. Although it’s a cold drink, I definitely count it as a fall must-have, perfect for inside, curled up with a good book.
