Fall is coming and that means that Starbucks will be bringing back seasonal favorites like Pumpkin Spice. And honestly knowing Starbucks, probably one new crazy fall themed flavor as well. Fall really is the season that Starbucks shines, because you can get lots of sweet hot drinks and pastries that are perfectly themed for the season. It’s always bringing great seasonal lattes that you can drink. Christmas Starbucks drinks often get the spotlight the most, but it really is the fall where Starbucks truly shines with special drinks.
Of course every once in awhile, seasonal and special drinks at Starbucks don’t make the menu again due to poor sales or negative feedback. And well there are certainly some seasonal Starbucks drinks we’d be fine never seeing again like the Christmas themed Cherries Jubilee Mocha there are others that we’d be devastated to see go. And I’m not just talking about the obvious Pumpkin Spice latte, which I’m sure would ensue plenty of protests from some people if it were to never return.
There are some other great fall Starbucks drinks that really ought to stay this fall. As mentioned before, the original Pumpkin Spice Latte is super popular so it won’t be listed here since it will obviously come back no matter what. And if somehow it doesn’t come back, something has truly gone wrong with Starbucks. From pecan lattes to fall themed mochas, there are some other fall drinks that need to return. Here are 5 Starbucks drinks that need to come back this fall.
1. Salted Caramel Mocha
Um hello, this one needs to stay for obvious reasons. It’s got salted caramel in it, so of course it’s delicious. With mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup combined with coffee and milk, the drink is already great. But with caramel and sea salt added, it’s the perfect mix of chocolate and caramel goodness. It may not have the popularity of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but it needs to stay.
2. Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte
What makes Pumpkin Spice even better? Mixing it with chai tea! The duo work really well together and it provides a sweet taste that will certainly give you both a caffeine and sugar fix. This great twist should definitely come back, as it truly is a delicious combination! The mix truly is tasty and simple.
3. Maple Pecan Latte
Maple and pecan are to these that go extremely well together. But the they can go even better together with coffee though. This sweet drink is topped off with a sugar topping. Seriously it’s so yummy and perfect for the fall. Everyone who loves pecans and maple is probably hoping this latte returns in the for the season.
4. Chile Mocha
If Pumpkin Spice is sweet, then Chile Mocha is the exact opposite, being all about the spice. Its spicy flavor is unique and tasty and perfect for anyone who likes a little more zest in their coffee. With cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa, ancho, and cayenne chile spices it’s a good mix of coffee and spice. It’s a great choice if you want something more spicy this fall, so it would be good for Starbucks to bring it back.
5. Caramel Apple Spice
If you want something sweet but aren’t keen on pumpkin spice, then you’ll love caramel apple spice. The drink has apple juice and cinnamon syrup and is then topped with caramel and whipped cream. It’s perfect drink for anyone with a sweet tooth who wants something different from pumpkin spice and that’s why it should come back.
