Happy Autumn! :) :)

Leaves changing, cooler weather, apple picking, pumpkin carving.... These can only mean one thing:

It's officially fall at Caribou! :)

Yesterday we started our new fall line-up. We have two new drinks, and a whole-lotta food! :) For our drinks, we have our Pumpkin Latte and Pumpkin White Mocha, and the food items are Cinnamon Apple Scones, Maple Walnut Scones, Caramel Apple Crisp Oatmeal (I think I'm wrong on the name) and Pumpkin Bread! I may not like the season of autumn, but all these new things actually make me excited about it!

So, because I work at Caribou, I have the horrible job of having to try everything. ;) I've tried everything but the Pumpkin Bread so far, and it's all tasting really really good! I'm not as big of a fan of the Pumpkin Latte, but I highly suggest that you all try the Pumpkin White Mocha. And in honor of fall, for my shift drink I got a Pumpkin White Mocha Cooler! I was a little iffy about it, but it was DELICIOUS! I will definitely be getting that drink again.

As far as the food goes, the scones are definitely a little dry, but they are cute and small, so they go perfect with a cup of coffee. I'm even tempted to get a coffee just so I can dip the little scones in. :) They're a pretty good deal, too! For one it's $1.25, but we have good deals on getting 2 or 3 of them, so check 'em out! :) And then... there's the oatmeal. Oh my goodness... If you like oatmeal, then you have to try the Caramel Apple Crisp! (Again, I don't know if that's the right name, but it's the promoted oatmeal right now.) It's sooo good. If I could, I would get it every day. Not everybody at my store feels the same way that I do, but that's because they don't like oatmeal in general. It's definitely sweeter, but it's soooo good. :)

So anyway... I think that's it. The weather is perfect outside, and it's going to continue to be that way for the rest of the week here in good ol' Minnesota (you betcha!). I think I'm going to open my porch door and let the cool breeze in tonight. :) I may not like autumn because it reminds me that winter is coming, but I gotta say... Minnesota autumn is making me happy thus far (Eric will be happy to read that).

Okay. NOW I'm done. Have a great evening everybody, and don't forget to check out the new stuff at your local Caribou Coffee! :)

PS - Thanks again, Bethany Johnson, for visiting my Caribou today. I love seeing friends there! :)
