The Top Ten Pumpkin Treats!


by xoxkar

--------

It's that time of year again; you can just feel that Autumn is on its way. The nights are falling upon us as they start to come earlier each week. The leaves on the trees start to turn into their most magnificent shades of red, orange, and brown. Once you step outside and feel the crisp cool air, you know it's time to start bundling up in your favorite scarf and gloves. And when you start your walk around town, you hear that pleasing crunch sound as you step on the leaves that have blown off the trees and then covered the sidewalks. You know it's the month of October when you see the cheerful orange pumpkins for sale in the market. A favorite of most during the month is to curl up on your favorite couch with a good book and a hot cup of tea.

During the month of October, we get prepared for a wonderful festive season that involves treats, spices, decorating, costumes, and of course pumpkins! Pumpkins have many uses, especially during October. Pumpkins are used whole to decorate a garden, also used as decorations around the house when carved and lit with a candle, and often used in many tasty treats. So I am dedicating this article to the top ten pumpkin treats! Because really, who doesn't love pumpkins?

Candy Pumpkin Latte

"A sprinkle of cinnamon on top of this latte makes it the perfect after-dinner treat for a cold winter night."

The description about this drink is absolutely right! What could be a better treat on a crisp fall October day than this delectable latte? This latte is made from the finest fresh picked pumpkins you could find, the most divine cream, and the tastiest fresh brewed coffee on the market! This latte is even served in a pumpkin shade mug. Take one sip of this drink and you won't be able to stop!

Approximate cost: 14,500 NP

Spiced Pumpkin Coffee

"This coffee has a bit of pumpkin juice added and is simmered with spices."

For those who prefer a simple coffee to those with cream, this spiced pumpkin coffee is the right pick for you. Instead of just being a simple black coffee, this coffee is infused with fresh pumpkin juice, and then simmered with the traditional spices that will give this drink a taste to die for! The mug even has an added bonus looking like a real pumpkin. Just looking at this delightful drink will make your mouth water!
