Fall is finally here and you know what that means!; LOTS of Starbucks. This time of year is when Starbucks is at its peak. Why? There are millions of people that can’t wait for their prominent Pumpkin Spice Latte Drink. All these people wait all year just so that Starbucks can come out with their seasonal drinks. Their signature espresso is highlighted by touches of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove that’s topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin pie spices. Sounds pretty good, huh? I’m tempted to go get one myself right now. These unique flavors and textures make the Pumpkin Spice Latte the #1 selling drink in Starbucks during the fall season. I honestly don’t see why it wouldn’t be though.
Starbucks fanatic tells us about her love for the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte.
“Pumpkin Spice Lattes are the most delicious drinks at Starbucks! When this drink comes on to market it means that my favorite season is finally here! Also, if you are at least the green level on the Starbucks Rewards program you can bring your cup back the same day for a free refill of normal hot/iced coffee/tea!”

Although the Pumpkin Spice may be the #1 most popular drink on the list this Fall, people do not forget about Starbucks’ other seasonal drinks. The Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino is #2 on the Fall Season Starbucks Menu. A blend of mocha sauce, toffee nut syrup, coffee, milk and ice all topped with sweetened whipped cream and caramel sauce with a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt create the delicious, cold Salted Caramel Mocha. That’s a lot of flavor for only one drink. It’s quite a shock to some people that Starbucks added salt crystals that are big enough to crunch, but when combined with the sweet caramel, it’s a blast of flavor.
These two drinks are the most popular during the fall but this season, Starbucks released a new drink that is added to the list of fall favorites, the Chile Mocha.
The new Chile Mocha consists of cocoa, cinnamon, and vanilla with a burst of ancho and cayenne chile spices. It’s the perfect blend to start off your mornings. A review from Brandeating.com explains the delicious new flavors of the Starbucks drink.
“The coffee seemed more prevalent here and the sweetness level is a lot more moderate and less dessert-like. The cocoa gives it a mild chocolaty accent. Compared to your traditional Mexican Hot Chocolate, it’s not as rich nor spiced but remained enjoyable.”
Well there you have it; the top 3 drinks from Starbucks in the fall. The Pumpkin Spice Latte, the Salted Caramel Mocha, and the new addition to the list this year, the Chile Mocha all represent the bursts of flavor that make the drinks at Starbucks during the fall season so popular.
