Return of the Pumpkin Spice!!!!!

I'm quietly minding my own business this morning, standing in line at Starbucks, ready to get myself, Katie and her sister a tasty beverage to help start the morning when I see a peculiarly unfamiliar syrup amongst the others. Hmmmm, I thought to myself, I wonder if I'll need to learn a new drink. I then heard someone utter the word "pumpkin", and my heart started to race. Pumpkin Spice??? PUMPKIN SPICE????!!!! I approach the till with tentative steps, and ask "did I hear that you have pumpkin spice?" "Yes! We JUST got it!" Those were the most delicious words I have ever heard. So here I am, at home, enjoying my first of MANY pumpkin spice lattes. This is bliss. Now, when does the Cinnamon Dolce come back?!?

it may never come back. i actually wrote starbucks an email after it went away and they said they couldn't guarantee that it would ever be back...

I love pumpkin spice. I hope my star or will bucks has it or will soon. My favorite time of year for starbucks is coming up.

kirst i totally agree with you, starbucks has the best flavours during the winter... but im still positive that half the enjoyment comes from having a hot coffee while its cold outside... just doesnt have the same effect in summer.

I'm almost positive that cinnamon dolce is coming back...

And I had two pumpkin spices today because I was working, and I am kind of sick of it... I think it will be my sometimes drink, not my regular drink. It's really sweet...

It's weird... When I was drinking it today, this rush of emotion came over me, and I was reminded of what I was doing last fall, the last time I had pumpkin spice lattes... You know how tastes and smells remind you of things, and this one was very vivid. And last fall my entire life pretty much changed, so it was quite interesting to relive it all in one sip.

i think it is something about autumn that makes you reminisce, it feels more like a new year than that actual new year in january.

have you had a starbucks pumpkin scone, they are delightful as well.

i have a feeling that the gingerbread latte will have the same effect on me...it is weird how tastes and smells do that to you. there is a shampoo that reminds me of when i was in Halifax...there was that nectarine that put me right in mum's kitchen and anytime I smell the vanilla perfume from the body shop, i think Julia must be around.

Ohhhhh lovely! Chris and I were at Starbucks last night when I was about to order my caramel macchiato and I suddenly noticed "pumpkin spice latte" up on the board. I was so excited.

And as far as Chris understands C. Dolce was another "seasonal" thing and that it will be back. Who knows, I guess we will have to wait and see.
