OPINION – ‘Tis the season to enjoy pumpkin spice everything.
AKA my favorite season.
I’ve spent the last few weeks searching for the perfect pumpkin treats, and I was not disappointed. And with this list, you won’t be either.
Here’s my Top 10 picks in no particular order:
(Just be warned that you will be tempted to try them all. And you probably should.)
Pumpkin spice latte – also referred to as “pumpkin pie in a cup”
Pumpkin bread – made from scratch AND served year round
Pumpkin soup – while it lasts!
Pumpkin cheese cake – gluten free and low fat
Vegan pumpkin cookies
Pumpkin cupcake – don’t feel guilty if you go here the same time you go to Twisted Noodle; you deserve three treats a day
Pumpkin pie – life is too short to only eat pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving (especially if it’s from Croshaw’s!)
Pumpkin pie yogurt – with chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers; yes please
Pumpkin spice latte – from the coffee shop
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies – from the bakery
Pumpkin chocolate chip bread – this is a daily thing for me
8. Orange Peel
Pumpkin spice bubble tea – a dairy-free blend of vanilla, almond, cinnamon and pumpkin spices; (this can also be made sugar free)
Pumpkin walnut crunch bagel
Pumpkin bagel – with pumpkin smear
Frozen pumpkin latte – yes, it tastes as dreamy as it sounds
Pumpkin bread – I can’t get enough
Bonus: Lemonade Kitchen
This is an online cookie shop based out of Salt Lake that ships (the best) cookies to your front door. PSA: They have pumpkin butter cookies until the end of October. Must. Order. Now.
