The end is here folks. Summer is finally coming to a close. “But, it isn’t even Labor Day?!” you may say to yourself while reading this. It doesn’t matter what you want. It doesn’t matter that it is still 90 degrees outside. It doesn’t matter that it is only August. Because we live in a society where fall is king and pumpkin is his queen. According to their website, Dunks has already released pumpkin flavors in the Metro New York area as of August 18th. And the rest of will be getting pumpkin and a few other new fall flavors here shortly.
In addition to classic pumpkin, Dunkin’ Donuts will offer a new way for coffee lovers to satisfy cravings for fall flavors, introducing Salted Caramel flavored coffee, lattes and macchiatos, also available for a limited time at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants by August 29. Served hot or iced, Dunkin’ Donuts’ new Salted Caramel flavored coffees combine sweet and salty in a delicious blend for fall.
If you jumped out of your seat and wet yourself a little bit with excitement at this announcement then kindly hang yourself from the nearest apple tree with your plaid Nordstrom scarf and leave the rest of us to enjoy the remaining warm sunny days of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall.
Fall flavors are good, and football season is incredible. But why is everyone in such a rush to get out of summer? Back to school shopping, fall flavors, Halloween decorations – all of it is already out there and we haven’t even hit September. At a wedding this past weekend I very well could have ordered my last Sam Summer of the year. Pumpkin nonsense has already displaced shandys and summer ales on the shelf and the last of the summer kegs are getting kicked as we speak.
When it’s blistering hot out and I can still get some color from the bow of my parent’s boat, I’m not trying to bake apple pies and carve pumpkins. Let’s take a breath America, we technically have a few more weeks left of summer. At the very least, get that PSL on ice..
