I tried every pumpkin spice latte so you don't have to

Calling all basic bi*ches. It's spooky season and that means pumpkin spice everything. Now I will admit, I haven't always been the biggest fan of pumpkin spice flavored things and definitely not coffee. No one messes with my iced vanilla latte from Dunkin'. 

However, last month I decided to give pumpkin spice lattes another go and you know what? I kinda like them.

So as a newbie to this trend, I decided to try a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, Dunkin', Caribou, and Dunn Brothers, to see which place offers the best one.

Grab your plaid cardigan, fall inspired scarf, and latte of choice, because it is time to get into the ranking.

No. 1: Dunkin

Was anyone surprised that Dunkin' ranked top on my list? I am a Dunkin' girl at heart, but I do stand behind my decision with or without my bias. This pumpkin spice latte was heavy on the cinnamon and other spices with the pumpkin being in the background. I prefer this as pumpkin flavoring is still something I am getting used to. 

No. 2: Starbucks

Coming in at number 2, we have Starbucks. 

Right after I got a latte from Dunkin' it started getting pretty chilly in the Midwest so I switched to hot lattes, but this didn't affect my ranking. 

The Starbucks latte didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed the pumpkin spice sprinkling on the top and the coffee forward flavor.


No. 3: Caribou 

Rolling in into third place is Caribou's pumpkin spice latte. This latte does a great job at balancing espresso with the flavoring, but for me it was lacking. It wasn't as creamy and smooth as the first two, which is a huge factor for  me.

No. 4: Dunn Bros

I don't know what has been happening lately, but Dunn Brothers just isn't doing it for me anymore. I swear every time I get their coffee now it tastes burnt. Whatever it is, I am not a fan. The flavoring was good however and it was creamy! It was just not the best when compared to the others.
