September is here! Football is back! The weather will start turning cooler in a couple of weeks! Soon people will start planning for Halloween, Thanksgiving and yeah, even Christmas.
For some, it is an even more exciting time of the year! Pumpkin Spice is back at Starbucks!
While it is good news that Pumpkin Spice is back in Starbucks, it has been reported that Starbucks has raised their prices in some areas. In some parts of the country, the price of a tall (12-ounce) beverage at Starbucks is between $4.25 to $4.45. For some this is more than they want to pay for a cup of coffee.
We want to help those who are trying to save money by making their own or maybe don’t live close to a Starbucks (yes sadly, there are people who don’t have access to a Starbucks) and want a Pumpkin Spice latte or frappucino. We put together this small list of Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice recipes. Enjoy!
