Flower Power Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bar

Ironic that I discovered this after I went to the dentist. This is a small bakery in San Diego that usually has little to offer except for really expensive cakes that taste just so so. I found that they offered little treats like this inside for a reasonable price so I decided to spring for this treat. Happy I did because it was yummmmmy! Super moist and pumpkiny. Had just the right amount of chocolate as well. I would definitely get this again. Like I said, I’m not a huge fan of this place, but they definitely did this right!

If you would like to discover this yummy treat then you can find it in El Cajon at the Flower Power bakery. You won’t regret it!! …just don’t order a 100+ cake, please. That you will regret.

Rad Coffee’s Blended Pumpkin Coffee

This. Is. My. Most. Favorite. Coffee. Place. Of. All. Time. I saw this shop through Facebook when my friend shared an article about their unique coffees. We then decided to make a trip to Upland, CA just so we could try it. Let me tell you, IT WAS WORTH EVERY DAMN MILE. I did some research before heading up there and found out they had fall drinks. They had a couple different pumpkin options like a latte and coffee, but I decided to go with the blended pumpkin and I AM SO HAPPY I DID.

Seriously, this is the best pumpkin drink I have ever had. It’s sweet, has a bit of coffee, and the pumpkin flavor is just right. If you think I’m being a little over the top about this, I will let you know that I went to this place THREE times just because I loved the drink so much(and I was in the area..kind of). Every single time, I ordered the blended pumpkin. My dad even loved it and he hates coffee.

If you are in Upland or driving through the area, stop by and try this place! It’s in a really cute location and the coffee drinks are fun and delicious! I wish we had one in San Diego. I’d be there every damn weekend. Seriously, go try this place!

Mariposa Pumpkin Ice Cream

This booth was just two down from Rita’s and I am thankful I decided to sample and get a cup of this! I tried a little spoonful before ordering a scoop and was very happy with my calorie decision. It was sweet and didn’t have a ton a cinnamon(like most pumpkin things like to add). Very creamy and enjoyable! I would have loved to get this in some kind of sundae. It would have been great with some fudge as well or pie crumbs.

You can get this from Mariposa which I am honestly not sure where you can find this place at. I know it’s a county up in Northern California. I was able to try this at a fair so hopefully you find a place that has this near you!

Birch Benders Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

I’m usually not one that likes to cook much if I don’t have to, especially not in the morning, but I will make an exception if the end result is a pumpkin pancake! I got this mix and decided that I would make some pumpkin spice pancakes.

At first I tried it without chocolate chips and found they were delicious! It’s rare to find a mix that is good on its own. I then decided I was going to throw some chocolate chips in there to make these even more awesome and wala! it did. Just the right amount of pumpkin and spice to kick off your morning. They were delicious both ways and I would definitely suggest you grab a bag of this so you can make these all year round.

I found this mix at Target which means that you can probably get it half off in a couple of days here. I know I’ll be stocking up on it!

Korky’s Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

When I saw that this little place had pumpkin bread, I had to ask if they also carried some kind of pumpkin coffee. The girl behind the counter seemed very eager to make me an iced pumpkin spice latte(I’m assuming it was one of the first ones she has made). It took a bit, but it was well worth the wait! This latte had the right amount of pumpkin and coffee. It was also super refreshing on the somewhat hot day.

I would definitely order this again along with their pumpkin bread. Both were spot on for the season and not even that expensive! If you would like to get your own, please head to Old Town and relax at Korky’s. You won’t regret it!

Korky’s Pumpkin Bread

I love pumpkin bread as I have said many times on this blog. While running around for work, I found this little place in Old Town. Going inside, I found some bread that needed to be tried! My supervisor also felt the same way as she ate half of it before I could even take a picture of it. One bit of this treat and I was happy. It had the right amount of pumpkin as well as a good number of nuts. It was light and fluffy which made it seem like it was very fresh!

I would definitely buy a whole loaf of this if I could. If you’re in the area, stop by and grab a piece or two. Korky’s has a nice area where you can just relax and enjoy the flavors of the season.

Ghirardelli Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares

I. Have. Been. Waiting. For. These. For. Years. This isn’t the first time that Ghirardelli decided to make pumpkin spiced flavored squares! They had these bad boys a couple of years back and I haven’t seen them again until this year! You can probably already tell, but YES I LOVE THESE. They are absolutely delicious. They have just the right amount of pumpkin caramel in them and they are soooo smooth. I could honestly eat the whole bag and so could my friend. They are bite size and easy to enjoy. That also makes them dangerous in the sense that they are addictive and make you feel less guilty for eating more than one since they aren’t that big.

You can find these at Target and any Ghirardelli store you come across. Please do yourself a favor and grab one or ten of these delicious treats!

Peet’s Coffee’s Pumpkin Scone

Honestly, I am not the biggest fan of scones in general. When I first tried this scone, I didn’t really like it. But I bought two and took the other to work a couple days later. After I took another bite of this, I found that I liked it! It tasted good with pumpkin coffee. I finished the whole thing, enjoying the pumpkin flavor. It had just enjoy pumpkin and sweetness that any pumpkin lover would enjoy this!

You can grab one at Peet’s Coffee and see for yourself how good this is!

Bread and Cie’s Pumpkin Eclair

Alright so this place was right next to Peet’s coffee so me and my friend decided to pop on and see what they were up to. It turned out to be pretty amazing. They have a bunch of different pastries and coffees you can buy. I found a pumpkin eclair so you know I had to try it! Once I got home, I took a bite and was pleasantly surprised. This eclair was fluffy and full of pumpkin goodness. It had seeds and whipped cream that gave it the flavor of pumpkin pie. I enjoyed it, but I also found that it was a bit too much for me. I’m not a huge eclair person, but if I was, this would be a great one to get!

You can pick up your own at Bread and Cie and then hop on over to Peet’s to grab a dark chocolate pumpkin mocha. Yum!

Peet’s Coffee Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Mocha

This coffee was also featured on the blog I read and it was one of the highest rated so I hunted down where the nearest Peet’s Coffee was and convinced my friend to join me! I was super excited because I’ve never seen a dark chocolate pumpkin flavored drink anywhere(if you don’t count hot cocoa) and I couldn’t wait to see if it was as good as reviews said. AND IT WAS!!! I decided last minute to go all out and get the whipped cream as well and it was the perfect decision. This drink is chocolately and pumpkiny in all the right ways and it’s so refreshing! I got mine blended and it was a delicious choice. It tasted like pumpkin chocolate milk with a hint of coffee. So good!

You can grab your own at Peet’s Coffee and die a little on the inside from the delightfulness. They also have a lot of different milk options so you can customize your drink the way YOU like. Grab a cup of this before it’s gone!!
