If the sound of escaping the cold by sitting comfortably inside a cozy coffee shop puts a smile on your face, then you’re in luck. Multiple brand name coffee and tea cafes have offered up their best seasonal blends to happy customers. Haven’t had a chance to indulge in some holiday brew? Here’s all you need to know about the best drinks for the season.
The company brought out the traditional Red Cups on November 3rd and three delicious new flavors. The Red Cup is the winter holiday version of the normal Starbucks cup and is, for some people, a huge defining sign that Christmas is approaching! Starbucks also offered up their best holiday treats by adding an Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Latte, and Peppermint Mocha to their menu for a limited time. For those of you who want the treat and not the calorie overload, I suggest ordering a Skinny Gingerbread Latte– all the fun for only 90 calories! The fall favorite, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, is also a great way to start the morning. The company is additionally selling a Thanksgiving Blend for the month of November.

If you are looking for a cold treat that tastes just like a liquified pumpkin pie–you have come to the right place.
Jamba Juice’s Pumpkin Smash is absolutely scrumptious and will leave you full and dreaming of Thanksgiving dinner. However, calorie watchers beware! This pick-me-up is 370 calories for a sixteen (small)! As an occassional treat, this Jamba Juice seasonal blend hits all the right taste buds. Check it out for yourself at their website! http://www.jambajuice.com
Last weekend I was given a free sample of Argo Tea’s new seasonal drink called Pumpkin Chai Latte. I had never had any of Argo Tea’s beverages before so I was skeptical as I took the small cup. To my amazement it was love at first sip! The Pumpkin Chai Latte is exceptionally tasty and leaves you warm and fuzzy for hours. This drink is a definite must for all pumpkin lovers out there!

For those of you who like a quick cheap muffin or donut with your coffee on the way to work, Dunkin Donuts has the seasonal fix for you! Not only does the company offer a great Pumpkin Latte but they have a pumpkin muffin and donut to go with it! Not a huge pumpkin fan? Dunkin Donuts is also offering a limited time low-fat Apple Caramel Muffin which is quite tasty. The company should soon be offering a Mocha Spice Latte as well to add to the holiday excitement.
