Is the Pumpkin Spice Latte an Acquired Taste? Asking for a friend



Would it be terrible if I confessed that I'm not really a fan of the Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

I mean, I don't actually dislike it or anything.  I just don't wait for it to arrive, drink it every day, savor it, worship it.

Which seems to make me in the minority.  Everywhere I go, I see "PSL" or "PSL is back!" or hear people ordering it like every other drink order in Starbucks.

I actually like my pumpkin in pie or muffins or bread or cookies.  Not so much in my coffee.

Maybe I need to challenge myself to the PSL.  And pledge to drink one a week until I learn to love it or the season is over.

Did I say I was asking for a friend?

Feels like Fall.

Bantam Bagels - Best Invention since the Donut Hole! From Shark Tank to Starbucks



Bantam Bagels first appeared on one of my FAVORITE television shows, "Shark Tank."

Somehow, I missed that episode.  However, lucky for me, I didn't miss out on Bantam Bagels.

First tried them a week ago and they keep me coming back for more.

All the cream cheese goodness is stuffed on the inside.  How neat is that?  I've tried the "everything" - stuffed with veggie cream cheese and the "classic," stuffed with regular cream cheese.  Deliciously filling.


Now, I'm a donut gal and I think donut holes are pretty nifty, but I have to say, these Bantam Bagels are creeping up on the competition.

Check out this great article in Fortune Magazine, here!

I Woke Up Like This - Peet's Gaia Organic Blend



I woke up like this.  Literally.

This was a rough morning.  And while I had my usual cup of home brew, I still wasn't quite awake.

Even the train ride into work didn't wake me.  After a crowded, hot and stuffy commute, I was still groggy.

Peet's Coffee to the rescue.

Stumbled into the coffee shop not sure what I expected to find.  What I didn't expect was this Gaia Organic Blend freshly brewed!

Fruity, chocolately and certified organic.

Yes, I can.
