Ringing In the First Day of Fall with Everything But Your Basic PSL

As much as we love that rare Seattle sun, we can’t deny our deep love for crisp orange leaves, annual trips to the pumpkin patch and that irresistible pumpkin spice latte craving that comes with fall. We’re sharing a few of our favorite snacks, beauty must-haves and obligatory pumpkin products that we’re coveting this autumn.

As soon as the leaves begin to change colors, we start to crave anything and everything pumpkin. BASIC, we know. On the days that we want to give into our warm PSL cravings, we reach for a healthier alternative. Nutpods has saved the day with their new Pumpkin Spice Unsweetened Dairy Free Creamer, packaged in plant-based renewable raw materials (hooray!).

We can’t get enough of Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin and Bread Mix. Think your hometown’s favorite bakery or grandma’s classic pumpkin bread, but made with an almond flour base and ready in only four steps! It’s our go-to treat this season.

Native Deodorant released a limited edition Pumpkin Spice Latte scented deodorant and we are all about it. When it’s non-toxic AND smells like a PSL, it’s a win-win product in our eyes.

We’ve been sipping on Elysian’s newest addition to their pumpkin beer lineup, Dark Knife, a pumpkin schwarzbier brewed with ginger, cinnamon and pumpkin entrails. A few more of our seasonal favorites include Elysian’s Punkucinno, Great Pumpkin and Night Owl. Plus, the bottle designs are awesome! Join us for their Great Pumpkin Beer Festival to try them all.

Another local favorite is Cupcake Royale. They have top-notch cupcakes, ice cream and coffee – perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. If you ask us, never pass up on their seasonal Pumpkin Cardamon cupcake, but that’s just our advice.
