Change Up Your 2021 Pumpkin Spice Season With These 7 Custom Starbucks Drink Orders

  Change Up Your 2021 Pumpkin Spice Season With These 7 Custom Starbucks Drink Orders Pumpkin spice lattes are a favorite of mine every year. I always look forward to taking that very first sip once the drink available, knowing that I'll be able to enjoy the warm and comforting drink for weeks to come. If there's ever been a time when we need some more comfort in our lives in the form of seasonal coffee beverages, this is it, so I've upped my PSL intake by a lot in 2021. (Whatever works, right?) But you know what happens when an obsession becomes too much of an obsession? Like when you lose interest in your favorite song after repeatedly hitting the replay button? While my love for pumpkin spice lattes will never go away, I've been craving drinks that are a bit different but will still satisfy my autumn-loving heart. By customizing your Starbucks drink order, you can keep your pumpkin game going strong all the way into the holiday season without ever getting bored. Here are seven tried-and-true pumpkin Starbucks orders - yes, one for every day of the week - that you can keep on solid rotation to mix things up (including some secret menu fan-favorites and iced cold pumpkin drinks).

You're Probably Overcooking Your Corn

  You're Probably Overcooking Your Corn Hello, it’s me, your friendly internet corn truther, here to tell you that you are probably overcooking your corn on the cob.
