Starbucks Fall Flavors Review

It’s fall, which means time for Starbucks’ fall flavors! But is that actually a good thing?

September 9, 2021

Pumpkin Spice Latte: according to Starbucks, the pumpkin spice latte includes “The fall flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove—topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices.” ( To be honest, it is gross. I would definitely rather have any other drink. The drink is way too cinnamony. It’s like drinking sand. Please just get an iced vanilla latte. Don’t force yourself to drink this just because it’s fall. It’s not worth it. 

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew: Now this drink is actually really good! It is not too fall and actually enjoyable. The drink is a normal cold brew with pumpkin-flavored sweet cream. The cold brew is obviously good, and the sweet cream makes it a little sweeter with a hint of pumpkin that is not overpowering. I highly recommend it. 

Apple Crisp Macchiato (option of iced or not): I won’t even try a sip. 

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino: This is obviously good. It’s a Frappuccino. For all the sweet tooths out there, you would love this drink. It is a better, drinkable version of the pumpkin spice latte. Actually very much recommend! The drink is worth the extreme stomach ache afterward. 

Pumpkin Scone: *gag noises* This is gross. Might as well eat a rock. The scone is very dry and the pumpkin taste is not good at all. There is icing on top. If Starbucks really thought the icing would take away from the disgusting scone, they were wrong. Please don’t buy it.  PLUS, MINE WAS NOT EVEN WARMED.

Fox Cake Pop: The cake pop is exactly like the birthday cake pop, just in a fox shape. It is a little bit of a sad way to make something fall. However, that does not take away from the masterpiece these cake pops are. The white chocolate is so sweet and satisfying to bite into. The cake inside the chocolate coating is so moist (in a good way) and the flavor is perfect with the white chocolate covering. I could maybe eat ten of these. And, I mean the fox is cute?
