Trend Alert: Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Back

Fall is just around the corner, and that means Pumpkin Spice Lattes, muffins, creamers, and basically, anything that can be made with this spicy orange blend is hitting the shelves. 

In fact, all the rage right now is the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. A perfect option for those pumpkin spice latte lovers who aren’t ready for a hot beverage just yet. Hot Tip, if you like to be on top of the latest food and beverage trends but not a fan of sweet drinks, the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew might just be the ticket. Cold Brews typically have a much stronger coffee taste which helps mellow out the sweetness of Pumpkin Spice.

Here’s some frequently asked questions regarding the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew that we wanted to answer:

  1. Is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Keto?
  2. Is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Vegan?

  3. How much does the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Cost?
