Tastes and Scents of Autumn at Favorite Retailers

Immerse yourself in the well-earned season with one thing we adore about autumn - scents and tastes. Here's some of your favorite shops and what they are offering this fall in the scent and taste departments to honor the BEST season there is! 


Dunkin Donuts

I was lucky enough to get my first job ever at a Dunkin Donuts at the tender age of 16. I was able to eat all I wanted and not gain an ounce. Oh, if only we still had that metabolic alchemy! So, now DD is just a special treat. Here's their fall offerings - 

Caramel Apple Croissant Donut (above): 
Smores Hot chocolate
Salted caramel coffee, lattes, and macchiatos.
Pumpkin spice coffee, lattes, and macchiatos.
Pumpkin spice glazed donuts.
Pumpkin spice bite-size munchkins.
Pumpkin muffin with icing and streusel crumbs.
14-pack pumpkin K-Cup pods


Pumpkin Spice Latte:  Our signature espresso and milk are highlighted by flavor notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to create this incredible beverage that's a fall favorite. Enjoy it topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin pie spices.

Salted Caramel Mocha: We blend mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup with coffee, milk and ice, then finish it off with sweetened whipped cream, caramel sauce and a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt for an explosion of flavor in every sip.

Chile Mocha: Cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla satisfy your sweet tooth while ancho and cayenne chile spices answer the call for something warmer ... for those mornings that need an extra kick.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin  
Our moist, perfectly-spiced pumpkin muffin is topped with sweet cream cheese and a sprinkling of chopped, caramelized pepitas for a delightful balance of salty and sweet.

Also - Pumpkin bread, pumpkin scone, pumpkin sugar cookie, pumpkin cheesecake bar.

Krispy Kreme

Pumpkin Spice Latte (also comes iced): Seasonal pumpkin spice flavored latte topped with whipped cream and a pumpkin topping. Available hot, iced, and now frozen.

Other: Pumpkin spice cake doughnut, Salted caramel Latte doughnut, pumpkin spice krispy juniors.

I tried the spiced pumpkin latte when I was planting my fall garden and I am not usually a pumpkin flavor lover. It was exceptionally good. It was creamy, sweet, and a hint of something aromatic. 

Dairy Queen

Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat: Pumpkin pie filling and pieces of flaky pie crust blended with creamy DQ vanilla soft serve, topped with whipped cream and a nutmeg garnish.


Some folks swear the orange ones taste better. Perhaps food dyes really do bring the magic or maybe we just are visual creatures when it comes to eating.

Burger King

No official word yet if Burger King will bring back the popular Halloween burger of last year that included A1 sauce (it was GOOD). Apparently the colored bun made people's poop turn green. Hey, don't complain. Consider it a side benefit for your evacuation entertainment. 


Bed and Bath Works

Halloween Festival 2016: Pumpkin cupcake, pumpkin berry crumble, coconut pumpkin latte, pumpkin cranberry cider, Purrfect Pumpkin sweet cinnamon pumpkin, vampire blood wicked plum, berried alive scary berry. Yes, these are scents - not flavors. They come in lots of variety from sprays to lotions, soaps and bubble baths. 

Yankee Candle

Crisp Fall Night:  Fragrance Notes: Top: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Black Peppercorn. Mid: Lavender, Maple Leaf. Base: Cedar, Lakeside Moss. Candles, melting fragrance waxes and air sprays.
