The Great Pumpkin Search for Coffee

We are continuing our 2015 Great Pumpkin Search with a coffee focus.

Last year Mars gave us Pumpkin Spice M&Ms, which were really good, and made my non-pumpkin loving sister fall in love with pumpkin spice things. This year we have another Target exclusive Pumpkin Spice Latte M&Ms.

Kick Off – The Great Pumpkin Search of 2013

Every year it seems that the pumpkin flavors pop up earlier and earlier.

 

This year’s first item for the Great Pumpkin Search was actually found in the middle of August. I discovered a wonderful Pumpkin Spice Tea at Barnes & Nobles.

First, it’s Tea, second it’s PUMPKIN Tea!!!

 

Obviously, I had to try a hot, venti immediately. I did have to wait the 5 minutes for the tea to brew, and then another couple minutes for the hot beverage to cool enough to sip, but it was well worth the wait!!

It’s October! The weather is finally starting to cool, welcoming the wonders of fall.
Though not exactly a “Great Pumpkin Search” candidate, the Pumpkin Cookie from Panera Bread (pictured above) is a wonderful delight!

A bright orange sugar cookie in the shape of a grinning Jack-O-Lantern, with classic sugary sweetness and a hint of citrus flavor, it is a perfect pairing to a warm Pumpkin Spice Latte, also available at Panera Bread. Read the rest of this entry »
