The Best Fall Flavor Foods

If you know me, you know that I was in line at Dunkin’ the day that they released their pumpkin coffee. Needless to say, I love fall flavors. Last year at around this same time, I ranked Dunkin’ fall flavors. But today, on this glorious day, I’m going to rank the top 5 of my favs of ALL fall flavored items, not discriminating by brand or even type of food. Just think of this as the master list of all things fall food. And, of course, this is just my opinion. But it’s the right opinion.

#1 Dunkin’ Pumpkin Donut

I have dreams about this pastry. On the same occasion that I touched on earlier, waiting in line for my signature medium iced coffee with pumpkin swirl and oat milk, I also got myself a pumpkin donut. Back when I worked at Dunkin’ I think I ate hundreds of dollars worth of pumpkin donuts and munchkins. Like, ungodly amounts of munchkins. 1000/10, easily.

#2 Chai Latte

I might catch heat for this but I think that hot chai lattes are a fall and winter specific drink. In my mind they fall into the same category as apple cider or maybe even hot chocolate. However, this rule makes exceptions for iced chai lattes which are valid year round. Anyways, chai lattes are my life force. I’m not convinced that I’d be the person I am today without them, and for that, I owe my soul to the mere idea of chai lattes. Specifically Starbucks or an independent coffee shop.

#3 Hot and Cold Apple Cider


This is a classic. I feel like I shouldn’t even have to explain this one.

#4 Halloween Oreos

Okay, okay, I know that they aren’t really a different flavor. But they’re still spooky and fun. I was at Target the other day and I picked up a package of these. I had to hide them from my family. They’re just so fun. And ORANGE. A fall favorite.

#5 Pumpkin Spice Latte

No, I am not a millennial in most scenarios. Yes, I am a millennial when it comes to pumpkin spice latte. I may need a pumpkin spice support group. Call it PSAA (Pumpkin Spice Addicts Anonymous). It’s so cinnamonn-y.

In conclusion, if you don’t agree with me, you’re wrong. Sorry ‘bout it.
