There is barely a hint

of the taste of pumpkin in my Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks.

Why do we accept this from Starbucks? We pay so much for a drink to have it not taste like what it is supposed to be. They do this to me all the time but I always try again thinking that maybe this time they have a seasonal drink that doesn’t suck.

Here is the website description: Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice topping.

So it’s really a Vanilla Cold Brew with some foam and some dusting.

Last week, I went to Dunkin’ to get a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and it tastes like a liquid pumpkin pie. It’s so strong you get dizzy and think it’s Halloween. You barely get the last sip down before the diarrhea hits. That’s getting your money’s worth, not this weak foam and dust treatment you get at Starbucks plus no craps at all. How do I know it’s working if it doesn’t go in cold and come out hot? It’s not working. It’s pitiful.

Here’s the description from Dunkin’: NEW Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew: For the ultimate pumpkin experience, Dunkin’s new premium pumpkin pick, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, offers Dunkin’s Cold Brew – coffee steeped in cold water for 12 hours for an incredibly rich, ultra-smooth, full-bodied beverage – made with pumpkin flavor swirl, topped with the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar topping. Dunkin’s new Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam is light orange in color and has sweet notes of pumpkin and hints of warm spices such as cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. The drink is served with a special sip lid so fall fanatics can enjoy the layers of velvety Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam and delicious bold Cold Brew to the fullest.

That’s right – you get pumpkin flavor swirl. It’s so powerful your drink turns orange. Grab the wipes and take your Kindle in the bathroom with you. You’ll be there a while.

I know where I’ll be going to get my pumpkin fix from now on.
