Restaurant chains started offering pumpkin-spice offerings early this year, and in this gallery we look at options from the usual suspects, including Starbucks (although the big news from them is the new Apple Crisp Macchiato), Dunkin’, Caribou Coffee, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Tim Hortons, but also Dutch Bros, Bad Ass Coffee, Bennigan’s, Clean Juice, Frisch’s Big Boy, Jamba, Scooter’s Coffee and Smoothie King.
But other innovation is afoot too. Lots of those chains are offering oat milk now, as is Bluestone Lane.
Buffalo Wild Wings has a new football-themed cocktail, Eureka! and Tacodeli have several new cocktails, and there are new shakes at Cousins Subs, Mooyah, Portillo’s and Shake Shack.
IHOP is testing beer and wine, and Carrabba’s is giving its guest the chance to compare Italian and Californian wines.
Panera has a new cinnamon crunch latte, First Watch has carrot juice and Moe’s Southwest Grill is testing Icee drinks.
