Fall is in full swing, which means pumpkin spice–flavored foods and beverages are absolutely everywhere. Scoff if you want, but I happen to love pumpkin spice season because the ingredients that create this famous flavor—ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg—are nostalgic. They spark memories of baking with my mom, and because I was in high school when Starbucks launched its signature Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL, because #ImaMillennial #SorryNotSorry), this flavor reminds me of walking to town after school on Fridays—a delicious freedom from class and sports and homework.
Sure, some pumpkin spice products teeter on ridiculousness. But plenty of foods and drinks featuring this flavor are simply to die for, including lots of new items launched just this year. We’ve been busy tasting, so here’s a small sampling of new pumpkin spice–flavored natural foods and beverages we’re sure you’ll love.
