Fall Feels: Maple or Pumpkin Spice?

As leaves start to turn and the air becomes brisk, we all long for some fall feels.  Nothing goes better with fall than a hot cup of delicious coffee. Will you turn to the coveted Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves or something more maple-inspired?

You can find pumpkin spice in almost any kind of food this time of year: there’s Halo Top pumpkin pie ice cream, Milano pumpkin spice cookies, MaxPro Elite pumpkin spice protein powder, Dunkin Donuts cream cheese spread and even something for the pups, Greenies pumpkin spice flavored dog treats, to name a few. But there just may be room for another flavor to steal the show and offer that warm, comforting fall feeling….maple.

Maple is a timeless flavor with a healthier portfolio -40 antioxidants and a low calorie sweetener– not to mention it is quite versatile making it easy to complement other flavors. While I do love slathering maple syrup onto my pancakes (“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup”) I am determined to try a few maple flavored items:

  1.  Maple Donut
  2. Maple stout
  3. Maple protein bar
  4. SURPRISE maple something!
