‘Tis the season for cooler temps, autumn leaves and of course, everybody’s favorite seasonal go-to: pumpkin spice. We’re honestly counting down the days until the Pumpkin Spice Latte makes its debut on various coffee menus. For those who haven’t heard the news, many establishments, like Starbucks and Dunkin’, are rolling out pumpkin spice products a bit earlier this year.
We know pumpkin spice lattes are a huge hit this time of the year — from Starbucks’ beloved PSL to more budget-friendly alternatives. But did you know there are other treats that capture the pumpkin spice flavor in all its tasty goodness? In fact, pumpkin spice has become a $600 million dollar industry that exists for only a few months of the year. A few of the pumpkin spice products that are about to hit supermarket shelves across the country include but are not limited to:
- Health Food
- Dog Treats
- And, (even) Lube
Without further ado, here are the 21 best pumpkin spice snacks, scents, drinks and treats to try — and buy — now. Consider picking these up for your upcoming Halloween festivities. Being *basic* never tasted and smelled so good.
1. Baileys Irish Cream Pumpkin Spice
If you only buy one pumpkin spice flavored treat this year, make it the Baileys Irish Cream Pumpkin Spice. This creamy, nutmeg-y liqueur is perfect for the autumn season. It can be mixed with milk and ice for a simple cocktail or added to something far more complicated for your next dinner party. It can even be poured directly into coffee for a boozy pumpkin spice latte. However you choose to enjoy this version of Baileys, you’ll love sipping on the pumpkin spirit as sweater season sets in.
2. Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice K-Cups
If you’ve got a Keurig coffee machine or any kind of coffee machine that takes pre-packaged cups, then the Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee pods are the way to go. This package includes 16-cups for $18.99, so the math equals approximately $1.18 per cup of coffee. But you can’t put a price on this autumn classic, can you?
3. Twinings of London Pumpkin Spice Chai
If you’re not a coffee person, don’t worry because there are plenty of pumpkin spice flavored teas out there.
