It's Monday! And that means it's a giveaway today. Aren't you surprised that I actually remembered from last week?
Yeah. I'm surprised, too.
Continuing with the failed pumpkin spice coffee test of last week...
I made Mr. Jenny do a serious pumpkin spice coffee run for me this weekend.
I could lie and tell you it was a blind taste test, but that would be...well...a lie. And I doubt that even I could consume three small lattes at one time.
The first in the pumpkin spice latte category was from Dunkin' Donuts.
Although I detected a hint of pumpkin it barely made me feel like autumn. I swirled, I sipped. Not much pumpkin flavor...although I think I could detect the suble undertones of glazed donut in there somewhere. Perhaps if I had gargled the coffee, like one of those wine taster people, the pumpkin flavor would have been more pronounced.
The second in the pumpkin spice latte category was from Starbucks.
Better. Definitely more pumpkin-y...but almost too sugary. I swirled, I sipped. Undertones of rich soil touched with golden fall sunlight shone faintly through the sweetness of the drink. I liked it better, but I didn't fall in love.
There was clear winner but it was from a west coast chain called Dutch Brothers.
Oh heavenly day. I swirled, I sipped. Yum. I swirled and sipped some more. I tried to convince Mr. Jenny to go get me a second small latte (he declined...sigh...). It was scrumptious. Pumpkin-y but not too sweet, spicy undertones but not too clove-y.
Because I know this chain is regionally limited, I didn't get a gift card from there to give away.
I did get a gift card from both Dunkin' Donuts AND Starbucks for a prize, though!
Ten dollars from each one!
