It’s that time of year, leaves scattered across the neighborhood streets as people pull out their flannels and scarves and make their way to the nearest coffee shop. A bright green mermaid smiles down as people wander excitedly into Starbucks, searching for the seasonal pumpkin treats. But one question remains: are those treats really that delicious? Some people shout “yes! pumpkin treats are my favorite,” yet others like to argue “no, pumpkin flavor is way overhyped.” Well, do not worry, I am here to help. As an avid pumpkin lover myself, I will provide reviews on the array of pumpkin treats Starbucks has to offer.
Pumpkin Scone: The pumpkin scone is a simple yet classic pumpkin treat that Starbucks offers, yet I have to admit it is rather bland. I have never been a huge fan of scones, and this one is nothing special. The taste of pumpkin is there, but I find it to be dull. Honestly, I would rate Starbucks pumpkin scone a 5/10. That might be harsh but I think Starbucks should step up their game and do something more interesting than a plain pumpkin scone.
Pumpkin Loaf: The pumpkin loaf is absolutely amazing. I look forward to this treat being back in season beginning every September. Like any loaf at Starbucks, the pumpkin loaf is moist and provides that “melt in your mouth” feeling. The pumpkin flavor really shines through and provides the warm feeling of fall, prompting me to give the pumpkin loaf a 7.5/10. It is a delicious snack or breakfast that will for sure fill you up and provide you with a delicious pumpkin taste.
Pumpkin Muffin: The pumpkin muffin is a must have. Instead of just a plain muffin, the inside is filled with a warm cream cheese frosting that completely enhances the flavor. Starbucks pumpkin muffin is my favorite fall treat; it is so delicious and everyone should try it. I have to rate the Starbucks pumpkin muffin a 10/10, simply because everything about it is perfect. The pumpkin flavor blends well with the cream cheese frosting, providing a mouth watering treat that you just won’t be able to stay away from.
Pumpkin Spice Latte: The pumpkin spice latte is a classic. Everyone knows about it and everyone has tried it. If you haven’t tasted this original pumpkin drink I definitely recommend, because it absolutely radiates fall vibes. Personally, I enjoy this drink. It warms my insides on a cold, rainy day, which is why I have to give the pumpkin spice latte an 8/10. It is not my favorite drink, but it is definitely a delicious option that Starbucks has to offer.
Pumpkin Spice Creme: The pumpkin spice creme is one of the lesser known pumpkin drinks Starbucks offers. I really enjoy this drink because as a coffee hater, this drink has no caffeine in it. The pumpkin spice creme is a nice hot drink to sip on, and its sweetness brightens up any cloudy fall day. I rate the pumpkin spice creme a 9/10 because it is just so delicious and enjoyable.
Pumpkin Spice Creme Frappuccino: The pumpkin spice creme frappuccino is perfect for a heatwave in September. When the weather outside is 110 degrees and you want a nice pumpkin flavored drink to cool you down, this frappuccino is there for you. I have to rate the pumpkin spice creme frappuccino a 10/10 because I love frappuccinos, and Starbucks nailed this one. The pumpkin flavor blends perfectly with the whip cream, providing a heavenly taste in my mouth.
