As autumn rolls around and consumers crave warming drinks and treats, pumpkin spice is once again the flavour of the month. Here are five brands that have been inspired by the trendy US import
New York Bakery Co
The New York Bakery Co is getting spooky this month with the launch of its Pumpkin Spice bagels (rsp: £1/five-pack). Complete with orange and black Halloween-themed packaging, the bagels will land on shelves on 10 October for three weeks only.
Pip & Nut
Nut butter brand Pip & Nut has added its first Festive Edition to its wide portfolio of flavours. Made from Californian almonds blended with pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, this limited edition almond butter (rsp: £3.95/225g) is vegan and free from palm oil.
Consumers no longer need to venture to a coffee shop to get their pumpkin spice caffeine fix. First launched in 2017, this seasonal variant (rsp: £1.95/50g) from flavoured instant coffee maker Beanies has gone into retailers for the first time this year. It is currently stocked in selected Sainsbury’s stores and will land in Lidl from 10 October.
With its bright orange bottle and jack-o’-lantern design, Mozart’s pumpkin spice liqueur (rsp: £18/500ml) is hard to miss on Ocado, where it launched for the first time in July. Best served neat, in hot chocolate or as part of a Halloween cocktail, the white chocolate cream has notes of pumpkin, vanilla, caramel and warming spices.
Whether trick or treating at Halloween or lighting fireworks on bonfire night, this seasonal blend (rsp: £7/200g) from Whittard is sure to keep coffee lovers warm on winter occasions.
