Starbucks Is Bringing Back Their Adorable Mini Frappuccino

Last summer, Starbucks introduced the smaller-sized frappuccino to the world, and they ate it up.

Most people gravitated towards it because of its cute, diminutive size or because of they honestly can’t finish a tall Frappuccino. The reason doesn’t necessarily matter…what matters is that people love these little guys.

The small Frappuccino comes in a 10 oz cup, as opposed to the 12 oz cup that the tall comes in. This slight change in size also comes with a slight change of price,  as the mini Frappuccino will be $.30 less than the tall.

These mini Fraps will likely only be around for the summer, so get ’em while they’re hot! Or cold.

Seasonally, McDonald’s has been known to add the a pumpkin pie variation to its dessert menu. This year, however, the fast food chain is testing a new version of the classic fall pie: Pumpkin and Creme Pie.

Like the rest of McDonald’s pie line, it will feature a seasoned filling baked inside a flakey crust. Unlike the previous pumpkin pie, this one features half pumpkin filling and half creme filling.

The Pumpkin and Creme Pie will be available at select McDonald’s locations through the fall. Hopefully they’ll make it to our neck of the woods.

So far a couple photos have made their way onto Instagram. Check them out.

FINALLY: Oreo Unveils Pumpkin Spice Oreos

pumpkin-spice-oreo

We all knew they were inevitable, but we are a bit surprised they took so long.

Immediately following squashed rumors of a new pumpkin spice-flavored condom from Durex, Oreo has officially unveiled some very real packages of Pumpkin Spice-flavored sandwich cookies. Like most special Oreo flavors, these guys come on the brand’s golden vanilla cookies, this time filled with a deep orange, actually kind of pretty-looking, pumpkin spice creme.

According to TIME, the treats taste “like fall,” “like a Yankee Candle,” or like “chai lattes” — or pretty much exactly like other pumpkin spice flavored thing out there. At some point you gotta wonder whether pumpkin fans even eat anything else during fall, or if it’s just cinnamon and nutmeg breath all the time.

In any case, whee, here’s another pumpkin thing, available starting September 24. Enjoy, ya freaks.

Dunkin’ Donuts Launches Pumpkin Crème Brûlée-Flavored Lattes

pumpkincremebrulee

‘Tis the season for drowning ourselves in sweet creams and sugars, particularly those of the pumpkin-flavored variety. But in case Starbucks’ PSL is getting a little old, Dunkin’ Donuts has decided to step up its gourd game, by offering a drink that tastes not just like pumpkin, but pumpkin crème brûlée.

Presumably sweeter than your typical pumpkin spice, Dunkin’ Donuts PCB is available in both regular coffee and latte form, reports Business Insider. Also among the limited time fall line-up are pumpkin hot or iced mochas, pumpkin pie donuts and donut holes, and a pumpkin muffin.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go hop on a plane to the east coast and drink enough of those pumpkin crème brûlée lattes to turn me as round as a pumpkin or a ramekin. Kay, thanks.

Turn Your Thanksgiving Leftovers Into a Moist Maker

thanksgiving-turkey-sandwich_resize

It’s November 30th and we’re guessing you probably have towers of tupperware lined up in your fridge stuffed with Thursday’s leftovers. Before you toss out those Thanksgiving goods you should probably construct this epic Moist Maker and then see how you feel.

Reimagined by the ladies at Spoon Fork Bacon, this Thanksgiving concoction was originally introduced to the world via the television show, Friends. Ross would wait all year for his sister Monica to make him this seasonal sandwich but when someone at work stole his precious meal he flipped out. Don’t lie, you’d do the same thing if someone nabbed your lunch.

Cranberry sauce, stuffing, turkey, tomato and lettuce nestled between some hearty bread. Yeah, that’s the stuff. But there’s a kicker to this creation that takes it to the next level. A third slice of bread is soaked in gravy then added smack dab in the middle of the sammich. This genius addition is both practical for the sandwich’s structural support and a delicious way to keep your sandwich perfectly moist, thus The Moist Maker.

There’s no right way to build your own Moist Maker but you can check out how Spoon Fork Bacon made their version here.
