Autumn ushers in new fall harvest flavors
Saturday 10 September 2011
In addition to falling leaves and the slight chill in the air, the smell of pumpkin-spiced foods is another telltale sign that autumn has arrived.
This week coffee shop chain Dunkin' Donuts, for example, debuted its fall lineup that includes pumpkin-flavored coffee, lattes, packaged coffee and apple cider.
The fall food range includes glazed pumpkin cake donuts, pumpkin muffins with white icing and streusel crumbs, and a new caramel apple donut coated with cinnamon sugar.
Starbucks also developed a Pumpkin Spiced Latte Facebook app that allows its more than 24.9 million fans to carve their face into a pumpkin and post it as their profile pic.
After choosing a headshot from an existing Facebook photo album, users then select from a range of pumpkin shapes and ‘carve' their image into it.
Another app invites fans to post photos of their Pumpkin Spiced Lattes by tagging it with #PSL and sharing it on Instagram on Facebook.
Baskin-Robbins, meanwhile, also launched a new fall ice cream flavor that takes a breakfast item and turns it into dessert. Their French Toast ice cream combines ice cream with chunks of maple bread pudding - a flavor that's supposed to be reminiscent of an "autumn Sunday brunch."
The French Toast ice cream will be available in the US for a limited time.
