Author: Administrator | October 09, 2017

When you think of autumn – do you think pumpkin spice lattes, cookies, milk, yogurt…well, everything? Well I do did. I think along with other Americans I may finally be pumpkin spiced out! Why be so basic?

Earlier this Autumn, The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that Maple is now the new taste for Fall. Just yesterday, I stopped in Starbucks and saw a Maple Pecan Latte as a new featured item! A Pumpkin Spice latte is my go-to, but I decided to live a little and give the competing beverage a try.

It was delicious and left me with a newfound love of this Maple flavored goodness. I’m all-in. Maple Pecan deserves to be the new signature flavor for fall:

  • It’s the essence fall flavor – with a fresh new taste to indulge in!
  • For so long it’s been a popular flavor enjoyed mostly just in breakfast foods – why stop there?

Here are 5 ways to include Maple Pecan in your fall food selections:
