Dark Chocolate and Caramelized Banana Oatmeal

Returning Fall Bakery Favorites
Customers can also delve into old fall favorites including, Pumpkin Scones, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, Pumpkin Iced Sugar Cookies, and Bantam Bagels.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
The PSL is by far one of Starbucks’ most popular seasonal beverages. This year marks the PSL’s 13th year; handcrafted with espresso and steamed milk, topped off with whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie topping, it’s easy to see why the PSL remains a crowd-pleaser.
Salted Caramel Mocha
The Salted Caramel Mocha is once again listed on Starbucks’ fall menu, made from a blend of toffee nut syrup and mocha sauce combined with coffee and milk, then topped with sweetened whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt.
The Chile Mocha joined the PSL this fall to bring a little heat to the spice party. Made with espresso and steamed milk infused with a cocoa and cinnamon powder, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and finished with a sprinkle of Chile Mocha topping, consisting of ancho and cayenne chile pepper, cinnamon, paprika, sugar, and a touch of sea salt. The Chile Mocha is also available as a Frappuccino, or as a coffee-free hot chocolate.

Nature’s Sweet is Starbucks’ first Stevia-based, zero calorie sweetener.
Need Something More?
PSL season may be back, but I guarantee you’ve never heard of these drool-worthy fall concoctions.
“At the beginning of the season, we saw a lot of excitement around fall flavors, especially after we introduced Starbucks Almond milk,” Sarah Spencer, Starbucks marketing manager said in a press release. “We wanted to tap into our baristas’ beverage artistry by giving them the opportunity to create new fall-inspired drink recipes to share with customers in their stores.”
Feast your eyes upon Starbucks’ “unofficial” fall menu created by the baristas themselves.
