It’s no secret that pumpkin spice is here to stay. Starbucks introduced its limited edition Pumpkin Spice Latte, selling 350 million units in the first 15 years. Other companies quickly followed suit, with pumpkin spice popping up earlier each autumn, including products ranging from candles to body wash, cereal to crackers. Plus, a lot more coffee. But now, we think it should stay year round.
Pumpkin spice brings feelings of comfort and warmth, often invoking memories of changing leaves, and cooler (yet still tolerable) weather. At this point, it has become synonymous with a certain time of year, but we feel it’s worth enjoying year round. Whoever said you can’t drink pumpkin in the summer never had pumpkin spiced cold brew.
If you bleed, sweat and cry pumpkin spice, or you like it a normal amount (there’s room for everyone), we’ve got the best products for you.
1. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Bundle
Drink, sip and snack your way through Starbucks’ bundle, which includes everything a pumpkin spice lover could want in their coffee break. This bundle comes with an 11 oz. package of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Flavored Ground Coffee, a tin of 20 Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Cookie Straws, and a 10 oz. package of Starbucks Ground Coffee, which is made with fall spices. Both coffees can be made hot or cold with a coffee maker or a cold brew system.
Pros: The Starbucks Fall Bundle is a great gift for the pumpkin spice lover in your life.

2. NESTLE COFFEE-MATE Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
Add a taste of pumpkin spice to any coffee or warm or cold drink with the NESTLE COFFEE-MATE Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. Sold in a pack of four, the Pumpkin Spice package comes with 200 creamers that will make it feel like autumn in a mug all year long. Because the creamers are individually packaged, it’s easy to take them with you in a lunch box, backpack or suitcase.
Pros: Nestle Coffee-Mate is lactose-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and made with Kosher dairy. We also like that the Coffee-Mate creamers don’t need to be refrigerated, making it easy to store them in a pantry or cupboard.
Cons: Each creamer contains 30 calories and 4 grams of sugar.
