It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no, I’m not talking about Christmas time, it’s fall y’all! Although it does not feel like it outside, it officially IS fall and in hopes of manifesting fall weather, we are gonna talk about the best and most classic fall snacks and drinks.

Pumpkin Spice… everything

Lattes and cookies and cereals, oh my! If you have been in any grocery store or coffee shop lately, then you know that pumpkin spice is back and better than ever now that it is officially fall. Whatever your snack of choice is, I’m sure you can find a pumpkin spice edition of it to enjoy!

Caramel Apples

The most fun snack to make this time of year is caramel apples! Whether you like apple slices dipped in caramel or you like to go all out, there’s one for everybody. You can have some fun with it and add toppings like sprinkles, nuts, or even candy. This snack is fun to make and to eat, which makes it even better!

Apple Cider

If pumpkin spice isn’t your thing, another classic fall drink you can enjoy is apple cider. Warm apple cider is the perfect drink for those chilly fall days when you just want to stay home all day cuddled up on the couch or while visiting your favorite pumpkin patch. But, since Ohio has decided to give us an extra-long summer this year, apple cider is luckily a great drink to have cold, too!

Pumpkin Seeds

When carving your pumpkins into jack o’ lantern faces or cute Disney characters, be sure to keep the seeds for a tasty treat. You can either eat them raw, or roast them with butter, salt, or anything else you wish to add to them to make them the perfect fall snack.


I’m not sure about anyone else, but for me, soups are one of the best foods to eat when it’s colder outside. And although we have not been able to enjoy any fall feeling weather yet, it is time to stock up on your favorite soup cans or recipes to enjoy when we start getting that cold weather. On a cold day, there are not too many things better than a warm bowl of soup and a pumpkin spice latte… am I right?
