Battle of the Pumpkin Spice Lattes: Comparing Four
Pumpkin is one of those fruits that is most emblematic of the Autumn season.
To be honest, Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte is only the most popular because the brand has become a superstar in the coffee-addicts world. Yes, it's good and it's much better when made with 2% milk and whipped cream over the healthier "skinny" version.
As an added bonus the red holiday cup makes it even tastier. But when compared to the next two latte brands it still doesn't get the gold medal.
We're getting closer! Dunkin Donuts' pumpkin spice latte has less of the bitter, espresso bite. It might be our overly-caffeinated tastebuds but it also tastes like there's more of a pumpkin flavor in this delicious spectacle.
Dunkin Donuts also offers this drink in an iced version which is perfect for the 90 degree winters that Florida is prone too.
Holy pumpkin orgasm Batman! We've always been skeptical of gas station espresso machines. Do they actually have caffeine? I CAN'T TASTE THE ESPRESSO!
But manic, caffeine addiction aside, this latte literally tastes like a pumpkin made love to some vanilla pudding and had a beautiful baby.
