Pumpkin Spice Latte Showdown....

As you all know, I have an obsession with Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks.  Ok, maybe you all don't know that because some of us don't really know each other face to face...or see me slurping them down like they are water in a desert.

However, as I was having car problems on a rainy day last week, I changed my route to work to drop off my car at the mechanic.  This would be the one fix that my very talented husband couldn't the  tune of $445.  Anyway, I digress.  It was a very bad day.

BUT, it was going to be made better by my impulse stop at none other than Dunkin Donuts

You see, I love Starbucks.  Really truly, love Starbucks.  However, if I am drinking anything other than coffee, I cringe at the price. CRINGE I tell you.

Well, Dunkin Donuts has unveiled a new Fall line up - a line up that includes an ICED Pumpkin Coffee.

I live in Texas.  It is hot until December 25th....and even then it is sometimes in the 70s.  Major Christmas buzz kill.  But last year we had our first white Christmas since I have been born, so I can't complain.

So, I pull up to the drive through and see a great iced coffee option with a Fall twist.  I order it.  I drink it.

I die.  I die for this iced coffee.  IT IS AMAZING.  It is the only thing that can replace my Pumpkin Spiced Latte.  Now, it is like 10 miles out of my way to work.  I die again because I know this may be the first and last one I will get to least during the weekday. 

But I am saving my money for the weekends and heaven because it is only like $2.50 for a large and the other is like $4.50 for a small.  You do the math!  

Check them out if there is a Dunkin Donuts near you!


  1. Ok, I can totally hear your voice as I am reading this, ha! Do you take Bush to work? Because I think their are a couple DD off of it by about a mile.

  2. no! don't switch to dunkin donuts!! i am such a diehard for starbucks, myself! did you know you can get this same drink there?? you could get an iced venti coffee w/pumpkin spice syrup and leave room for cream to see if you like it! it shouldn't even be $3 for that!

  3. Ok, I'm glad you found this! A couple of weeks ago I was at Starbucks and was wanting a Pumpkin Spice Latte but it was like 100 degrees out and didn't want anything hot. I was hoping they would have a Pumpkin Spice Frappacino or something like that, but they don't! I'll have to try this now! :)

  4. Ohh I am so going to have to fund a dunken donuts!
