Starbucks Fall Drinks: Part 2!

Starbucks Fall Drinks: Part 2!

Last year, our group set out to review the Starbucks fall drinks around this time- and we’re back again, reviewing this year’s fall drinks! New this year is the Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte, and [spoilers!] it does not disappoint.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew (10/10)

This is arguably the best fall drink, because the pumpkin was present and the foam added elevated the experience. Even though it’s cold, it brings fall to mind better than most of the other fall drinks.


Pumpkin Spice Latte [Hot] (7/10)

A classic! Delightfully fall, and a perfect option for a fall drink.


Apple Oat Milk Cream Frappuccino (6.5/10)

Doesn’t taste anything like fall, tastes like a milkshake or a normal frappuccino.  


Shaken Apple Oat Milk Espresso [Iced] (3/10)

Tastes like an average latte, doesn’t have any hint of apple. 


Apple Oat Milk Macchiato [Hot] (8/10)

It seems to not have as strong of an apple taste, almost tastes like warm apple juice. However, not a bad option, as it’s good for a fall state of mind.


Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte (9/10)

Sweet and spicy with pumpkin cream! Could also be the best one, truly.



Owl Cake Pop (6/10)

Silly looking, a fun look! However, it tastes like any other cake pop. 


Pumpkin Muffin (8/10)

Very good, and tastes similar to the pumpkin loaf. The pumpkin muffin, however, is a bit messier so make sure you take that into consideration if you choose this item. The cream cheese in the middle is a lovely treat!


This season’s fall drinks are fantastic, and I would highly recommend the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew! The drinks are currently available, and will likely remain in stores until mid-November!
