The 2023 Fall Drinks Arrival

Jenna Warren
Starbucks fans ready of the fall return of pumpkin flavors

As fall is approaching us, Starbucks just announced their four, new fall drinks to match the upcoming season. 

The Iced Apple Crisp Shaken Espresso, is an amazing choice for those that are lactose intolerant, seeing as it is made with oat milk. 

“I really enjoyed the Iced Apple Crisp shaken espresso with a splash of oat milk, because I love the rich taste of the coffee and the taste of the apple,” Junior Emma Thornton said.

The perfect mix of coffee and sweetness can make someone’s mood change up fast. The Iced Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte is an amazing pick for someone that is looking for a good balance of sweet, and creamy. 

“My favorite was the Iced Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte, because it tasted sweet but also had a little hint of coffee in it. The mix of the two is a great combination,” Junior Will Dery said. 

Pumpkin may not be everyone’s favorite, but  pumpkin spice is one of the main fall flavors and never fails to impress. You can never go wrong with pumpkin spice, no matter what season we are in.  

“My favorite drink out of the four was the Pumpkin Spice latte, hot and iced. I really liked how much it tasted like fall, since Fall is my favorite season,” Junior Olivia Orr said. 

Fall drinks are the best all year round. Even if you don’t enjoy fall drinks, you can add more sweetness such as sweet cream cold foam. It really helps break down the pumpkin taste and rounds everything else out. 

 “Although pumpkin is not my all time favorite, I’ve tried the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. The pumpkin mixes really well with the coffee, plus the sweetest really helps,” Junior Ava Pritt said. 

When it comes to coffee, many people can’t live without it. If you are looking for something new to try, make sure you go check out the Starbucks new fall drinks.
