Pumpkin Spice and Other Fall Products To Enjoy

Fall has arrived and like clockwork, the Pumpkin Spice flavor has taken over store shelves and coffee shop menus to give everyone the taste of autumn they so often crave. However, the pumpkin spice scent and flavor often varies from coffee shop to coffee shop and food product to food product. While it obviously contains the pumpkin flavoring, the rest of the spices can be a bit of a mystery, but those spices still remind us of the fall season and give us the warmth we desire in the colder months. For instance, MONQ’s Pumpkin Spice flavor in their newest diffuser for autumn includes cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg to give you that delicious taste and a blanket of warmth through one breath in a personal aromatherapy diffuser. So what are some of the other unexpected fall flavors to enjoy?
