It is officially fall on Saturday, September 23rd and pumpkin lovers can finally rejoice. Pumpkin everything is BACK! That of course means the ever popular pumpkin spice latte. Pumpkin spice lattes are a sign that football, crisp air, Halloween and everything else fall is upon us. And for this reason, we wanted to find out where we can go in and around Boston to get the absolute best pumpkin spice latte. And where else would we go to get this information? Of course, we asked YOU, the listeners. And you are very passionate about where to get your delicious warm fall treat. But before we get to the list, let’s take a look at what exactly goes into a pumpkin spice latte.
Of course you have to start with milk. You can use whole, skim, almond, oat…whatever type of milk you’d like. You then need pumpkin flavor which, if you ask Starbucks, they’ll tell you they use pumpkin syrup which includes sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin puree. Then, depending on the place, you’ll have brewed espresso and top it all off with whipped cream and some cinnamon. The ingredients vary depending on the place you go but for the most part, the lattes taste very similar.
So we asked you where your favorite place to go to get a pumpkin spice latte is. We were asking for places in and around Boston. You delivered. From Rhode Island, to Cambridge, to Wrentham and to Boston, you’re going to learn about some places that have some delicious lattes. Oh and by the way, you won’t have to drink them hot. Iced lattes are just as popular as hot ones.
So before you decide where to get your breakfast this weekend, check out this list. If we missed one, let us know.
