Gabi Wilson, reporter

     Autumn is almost here, and Starbucks is already prepared. They have the seasonal favorites that you look forward to every year. Your fall experience wouldn’t be complete without the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte). The Starbucks fall favorites are here and ready to satisfy you. 

     When you think of fall, the first thing that comes to your mind is typically pumpkins. The Pumpkin Spice Latte seems to be everyone’s favorite and Starbucks’ most popular drink during the fall season. Some additional mouth watering things to get at Starbucks include the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, the Salted Caramel Mocha, and the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino. You may be wondering “What’s in the drinks?”

     The Pumpkin Spice Latte includes espresso and steamed milk, with a flavor combination of pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. You can add whipped cream and pumpkin spice to top off the drink. Audrey Warren, a junior, said, “My favorite fall drink at Starbucks is probably the Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s so festive and perfect for the season.”

     The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is cold brew sweetened by vanilla syrup and topped off with pumpkin cream cold foam and pumpkin spice. It may sound simple, but sometimes the simple things make for the best taste. 

     The Salted Caramel Mocha has mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup mixed with coffee and steamed milk. Top this with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, sugar, and salt to get the ultimate Salted Caramel Mocha experience. 

     The Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino is a blend of mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup with coffee combined with milk and ice. Top this off with whipped cream, caramel, sugar, and salt to get a taste of fall with every sip. Ian Rasmussen, a sophomore at Hellgate said, “The Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino slaps. I had one yesterday. It’s a good blend of sweet mixed with coffee.”

     Some delicious, fall treats to get along with your drinks can be found at Starbucks as well. They have a pumpkin scone, a pumpkin cream cheese muffin, and of course, pumpkin bread. The pumpkin scone is topped with icing. The pumpkin cream cheese muffin is a moist muffin with cream cheese filling and sprinkled with chopped, spiced pepitas. The pumpkin bread, simply spiced and sprinkled with pepitas, is a permanent menu item. 

     Now that you know what’s on the fall menu, make sure that you stop in at Starbucks sometime soon to get the annual Pumpkin Spice Latte or other festive drinks. While you are there, you might as well get a treat to go along with your flavorful drink. Starbucks is prepared for all your fall cravings.
