I heard this morning that Starbucks’ sales for September were up 10% and attributed to sales of the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte drink.
Something i think is really cool about Starbucks is that they don’t milk a product to death like so many other companies. Do you know how easy it would be for them to make seasonal drinks available year-round? I’m sure it would be easy. it’s just great to have something to look forward to. I know a lot of people that rave about their seasonal drinks.
Some of my favorite winter drinks besides the Pumpkin Spice Latte are the Peppermint Mocha (oh man is that good) and the Gingerbread Mocha (not quite as good but a nice alternative).
Two others available year round but are popular in the wintertime are the Caramel Apple Cider (this is so very good) and the White Chocolate Mocha (how many calories this has I don’t even want to know).
If you thought that had a lot of calories, and you don’t care, then the Eggnog Latte is for you (also available as a Mocha). This drink is just too good. You have to get at least one every year.
