During these fall months, pumpkin spice prime time has arrived. This season gives way to flavors ranging from iconic fall staples to ones more niche but equally as tasty. As expected, Harrisites are raving about their most loved and anticipated eats this fall season.

Pumpkin Spice
The pumpkin spice latte craze seems to be never ending, as it is one of the few flavors that companies like Starbucks and Dunkin bring back every fall. French teacher Caroline Lopera said, “First of all, I like pumpkin even though it’s sweet and I don’t typically like sweets. It means that fall, my favorite season, is here.”

Pumpkin spice is quite popular in its pie form. Sophomore Yzabel Pusing said, “[Pumpkin pie] is like the perfect blend of creamy and crunchy.” Being able to bite into something and get instant nostalgia is one of the many powers food has over us. Junior Liam Trimble said, “I really like pumpkin pie, it reminds me of fall and October specifically.”

Apple, another famous fall flavor, comes in a range of treats. Freshman Olivia Baik said, “Apple pie is very ‘cinnamon-y’, it reminds me of fall and apple picking.” Like its competitor, pumpkin spice, apples are also enjoyed in many different forms including apple pie, applesauce, and caramel apples. Sophomore Azeezat Yusuf said, “Caramel apples in particular are what I would eat at the carnival each fall. They are so good.”

Chai (Lattes)
Chai lattes have quickly become more popular due to their versatility and lightly sweet taste. Junior Nicholas Ackerman said, “I first tried a chai latte last fall and it really added to the cozy vibe that fall has. This year Dunkin added a ‘Pumpkin Cold Foam Chai’ and that really felt like everything good about fall wrapped into one.”

Be sure to test out these Harrisite approved foods next time you’re looking for an autumnal aliment.
