Fall in South Florida looks a bit different than the rest of the country. While we may not have falling leaves and cooler weather, we can still take advantage of all things pumpkin spice. What started as a cult-favorite drink has turned into the season’s most recognizable flavor. From fall standards to new takes on Pumpkin Spice, here are the best ways to celebrate #PSL.
Starbucks’ signature Pumpkin Spice Latte is the quintessential fall drink. The flavor, which debuted in 2003, is composed of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove – all of which are designed to comfort your taste buds. While you can’t beat the original, we recommend trying the newest addition to the fall line-up, the Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew.
If you dare to deviate from the classic fall drink, opt for a milkshake version. Godiva’s decadent Pumpkin Spice Chocolixir is made with white chocolate vanilla bean soft serve ice cream and blended with aromatic pumpkin spice and a touch of salted caramel. The indulgent shake is topped with whipped cream cinnamon dust, making this one of the ultimate, must-have desserts of the season.
Straight from the source, Shake Shack’s fan-favorite Pumpkin Shake is made with real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, marshmallow, and frozen vanilla custard. The delicious dessert is topped with whipped cream and toasted pumpkin seeds for a decadent finish. Remember to add “Pumpkin Shake Pickup” to your calendar because it’s only available for a limited time. Pro tip: skip the line by ordering ahead online!
Move over pumpkin pie! If you haven’t tried The Cheesecake Factory’s famous Pumpkin Cheesecake yet, you’re missing out. Although the menu item has been a staple since 1980, the recipe is adjusted each year depending on the pumpkin crop. The cheesecake’s spice and sugar quantities are adjusted until the “harmonious” blend of flavors is recreated. Fun fact: the cheesecake is so popular that it’s available for international shipping!
Beyond drinks and delicious desserts, pumpkin spice is also the go-to fall scent. Anthropologie, which is known for its selection of beautiful and fragrant candles, is the perfect place to shop for seasonal scents. Our choice? The new Pumpkin Dulce candle, which is filled with sweet notes of white pumpkin, gingersnap, and whipped vanilla. Need we say more?
From candles and air fresheners to scent diffusers, Bath & Body Works has everything you need to fill your home with the season’s most sought-after aromas. This year, the brand released over 20 new candles, including Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, and Pumpkin Pecan Waffle. The hardest part will be choosing your favorite!
Pumpkin Spice has officially entered the beauty arena, thanks to Too Faced! Known for its fun, themed collections, the beloved makeup brand just launched its new Pumpkin Spice Eye Shadow Pallete and Melted Matte Lipsticks. Baked with 18 scented warm and spicy eyeshadow shades, the rich colors come in a variety of finishes, making your transition from day to night as easy as pie. We recommend the Melted Matte Pumpkin Spice Lipstick to help bring your fall makeup look together.
