Move over PSL...there's a new pumpkin in town

I would not describe myself as being on the cutting edge of anything. So, if you have already had this, I apologize. 

Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything. 

But pumpkin spiced coffee? I just can't. 

Until now. 

Sunday was my mother-in-law's 83rd birthday. We gathered at my brother-in-law's for an impromptu get together and she partied like a teenager. 

Just kidding...she drank some tea. 

It's always fun to see and chat with my nieces and nephews. And as teenagers, they are on the cutting edge of everything. 

So, thanks to my niece, Vivian, I have found a new fall favorite. 

Behold the Iced Pumpkin Mocha.  

Per Vivian, for a medium, you should order it iced, with cream and one melted sugar. I think this may mean liquid sugar, but I'm assuming those in the know will know what that means. 

The iced pumpkin mocha is a game changer. 

While other coffee shops may offer the same, I can only vouch for Dunkin' Donuts. And thanks, by the way, to Dunks, for the free coffee after a Patriots win. Maybe your local Dunks has a similar promotion for your home team. 

It makes for a very happy Monday morning. 

This fall, I will be running on Dunkin's iced pumpkin mocha; no pumpkin spice latte for me. 

Thanks anyway, Starbucks. 


  1. Ooh, I'll have to try this out! And I saw on my Dunkin app about the free coffee. Sadly, I was in New Jersey where that deal doesn't stand ;-)

  2. I am not a PSL person either but this sounds worth a try. Woohoo to free coffee!

  3. Happy Birthday to sweet Mother- In- Law, aka, party animal! What a fuss on the pumpkin spice, people lovin it or hating it, and everyone seeming to have an opinion. I'm a WaWa gal and sure do love my pumpkin spice coffee in the fall... it is delicious. Sounds like you've found a perfect new fall treat too! Enjoy.

  4. It is delicious. People love their pumpkin. Funny though, I don't know anyone that uses fresh pumpkin; only canned. It's a universally delicious flavor, like vanilla, I guess. Have a great day, Peggy!

  5. It is so good, Kerry. The chocolate is what does it, I think. It's a great treat.

  6. It's so good, Bev. I think it's the chocolate that does it. It's a great treat (and free after a Patriots win) for when you're back in MA.
