So guys yesterday it happened! No more Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I went to a local Starbucks, tried to order a pumpkin spice latte, and to my surprise the barista told me they no longer have them because of the seasonal change. I had to make a quick decision. I looked up at the menu and saw that the caramel brulée lattes were back! I remembered instantly how amazing they tasted last year and quickly ordered it. Last year the caramel brulée latte was like my pumpkin spice latte this year. I would go to Starbucks everyday just to get that. The baristas would know exactly what I wanted soon as I came in the store. I think next time I am going to get my grande caramel brulée latte with a shot of espresso to increase the taste of coffee.
After Starbucks I went across the street to Levain Bakery. I came in and saw what looked like the chocolate brioche and told my mother that I wanted one. The cashier then told us that they did not have any more left and that was actually the cinnamon brioche. I guess today was not my day. I just settled for a $4 chocolate chip walnut cookie. Funny I said settled, their chocolate chip walnut cookie is the best cookie I have ever had from a bakery. I just wished that they did not have walnuts in them. Anyone who knows me knows I do not like nuts in my baked goods. When ever I get the cookie I just bite the bullet and eat them or just leave them to the side.
When I got back home I went online to see whether the pumpkin spice latte had really ended for the season. On the Starbucks website it says that it is currently available. I even looked up what locations I could still get it and the location I was at was in fact on the list. Since I had just come from that location and the barista said, no it was not available I knew that this was not true.The website probably needed to be updated. I will go check the other locations and let you guys know if I find them somewhere else. Maybe yesterday was not my day or it was just time to go back to old habits. I am going to miss you pumpkin spice latte. See you next year! Til next time!
