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!

Peet’s Coffee Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

I also wait all year to get me some pumpkin bread. I saw this and grabbed a slice to try later on. When I took a bite, I was expecting at least a little bit of pumpkin flavor but was met with absolutely nothing. This bread had no flavor at all! I took another bite thinking maybe it just needed another chance, but it was still very bland and disappointing.

I say to skip this one. You can make your own pumpkin bread and it tastes way better than this. Plus, you get a whole loaf to yourself if you do that! If you want to try this, you can grab a slice from Peet’s Coffee.

Bread and Cie’s Pumpkin Muffin

I LOVE PUMPKIN MUFFINS. Seriously, I wait for them all dang year long. So when I saw this at Bread and Cie when I got the pumpkin eclair, I had to try it! Unfortunately, it was disappointing. The muffin itself was very moist, but it didn’t have much pumpkin flavor. The seeds on top also give it a weird texture. They make the muffin slightly more earthy than anything else. I think this muffin just needed a dash more pumpkin and it would have been spot on!

You can grab one and Bread and Cie and then pick up one of their eclairs as well!

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

I was so dang excited that I found this in a Walgreens while out and about. I love trying new drinks and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this! However, when I did get to taste this, I was soooooo disappointed. I should have taken my friend’s warning. She said I wasn’t going to like this drink and she was right! This pumpkin spice frappuccino tastes like straight up dirt. It’s so gross and disgusting that I didn’t even take more than a sip. It had NO pumpkin flavor. It literally just tasted like dirt water(kind of like their premade iced pumpkin spice latte that I reviewed). Not only did it taste bad, it’s loaded with 300 calories that make you feel guilty for even looking at the thing. It is also way overpriced for how much you get. I rather drink just straight black coffee than this crap.

I say skip this and go grab one of my favorite pumpkin coffees rather than this garbage. You can find this at most grocery stores or Walgreens if you want to dare and try it.

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 Pumpkin Bite

With my dark chocolate pumpkin mocha, I needed something sustainable. They had these little bite sized snacks that of course had pumpkin so my friend and I decided to grab two of these and try them out! They weren’t too pumpkiny, but they were definitely delicious. They were more cinnamon flavored than anything else. I did enjoy them, however. They were small and a good snack minus not having enough pumpkin.

You can go get your own at Peet’s Coffee as well as their dark chocolate pumpkin mocha(that seriously is pumpkiny and delicious)!

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!!

Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Items

As a whole, Dunkin’ Donuts really just fell through. This should be the breakfast of pumpkin champions, but it’s really just all disappointing even though it’s cheap. I don’t plan to ever order any of this stuff ever again which is pretty sad considering I usually like their coffee at least. I say to just skip this place altogether and go try some of my favorites. You’ll be much happier with your choices if you do so!

Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Muffin

As you can see, this muffin doesn’t look much different than the pumpkin donut I got from Dunkin’ Donuts. And guess what? It tasted pretty much the same! I’m not sure what the hell they were trying to do with the frosting here as it’s literally a single swirl of some kind of cream cheese. It wasn’t very good so I’m glad there wasn’t a lot. This whole muffin altogether was a disappointment. Barely tasted like pumpkin and it was dry. I honestly only ate the top of the muffin and gave the rest to a coworker because I was over eating Dunkin’s crappy pumpkin things.

You can get this at Dunkin’ Donuts but I just highly suggest that you don’t.
