Pumpkin Drinks

Guest post from: Denver Stephens

Fall makes me become totally and completely obsessed with pumpkin flavored anything. It all starts when I start seeing commercials for Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes on direct TV. I am not one who frequents Starbucks because I really don’t need the extra calories that their specialty drinks add to my daily count or extra money they drain from my checking account. However, I can’t seem to pass a Starbucks without stopping in for at least a small one in the fall. Luckily, Dunkin Donuts has come out with a less expensive, and less calorific, substitute for the Pumpkin Spice Latte. They have pumpkin flavoring that you can add to your coffee, which unfortunately isn’t sugar free like the rest of their flavorings, but at least you skip all of the extra milk that comes in a latte. My last pumpkin obsession is Cottonwood’s Pumpkin beer. I have tried many other Pumpkin flavored beers and none hold a candle to this one, which is brewed right here in the Carolinas. Not only can I support my pumpkin addiction, but also the local economy!
