As Autumn arrives, the food trend in entire world takes a 360 degree turn, good bye long island teas and margaritas, And hello hot chocolate, waffles & traditional coffees. October brings along Halloween with all shades of orange with shedding orange leaves to coral sweaters but Pumpkin-orange is undoubtedly everyone’s favorite. For years, Pumpkin has been used as a traditional food & spice for fall in different cuisines. This year, our very favorite Starbucks coffee introduced topping of traditional pumpkin spice over your lattes, mochas & cappuccinos which is collectively called Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
The fall is here this year and so is the hype of pumpkin spice latte available at Starbucks. I just gave it a try for the first time. I headed to Starbucks to get myself a coffee and asked them to top it up with pumpkin spice just as everybody likes it these days. As soon as I received it, the aroma hit my nose like a treat. It smelled so refreshing, just as strong as cinnamon and I couldn’t hold myself back from sipping it immediately. The first sip of the latte made me realize big time why people are obsessing over it. I wonder if pumpkin spice adds so much flavor and fun to a latte, why they don’t have it all year around.
The only thing which I didn’t know earlier was that the spice adds little extra sweetness to your coffee. So, make sure you get your coffee less sweetened than usual so that the pumpkin spice’s topping does not give you a sugar rush. The taste of it is not at all like that of basic pumpkin, but it creates its very own new definition, when mixed with latte. Not something you would want in your everyday coffee but a definite treat on Fridays and cheat days.
Now, isn’t it wonderFALL! 🙂
