As some of you know I’m a Starbucks fanatic and LOVE their pumpkins spice latte but I’m trying to cut back on my expensive Starbucks trips. They always get me; I go in for a latte and leave with a delicious treat to accompany my Fat Free, no whip, pumpkin spice goodness (of course I opt for a treat that is not Weight Watchers friendly…shame shame is my name ;D).
I sat down and created a Starbucks budget. Each month I’m going to put my Starbucks allowance on a gift card. Once I spend my allowance for that month, that’s it…..at least until the next month rolls around. Since my Starbucks trips are limited and I’m going to miss that daily pumpkin goodness (ok not daily but I am there a lot) I’ve been on the hunt for a few substitutes.
Here’s what I found........
7 Eleven has a pumpkin spice latte (sorry I forgot to snap a pic of it). I purchased a 160z pumpkin spice latte for $1.39. It was good but I wish it had a stronger coffee flavor. I would drink it again but only if I feel like being bad; It has to be packed it calories. 7 Eleven does have a pretty cool drink bar though; lots of flavors and fixens to personalize your drink.
Exxon on the Run has pumpkin spiced coffee!! I purchased a 12oz pumpkin spice coffee for $1.29 and was very pleased. It was delicious and cheap and even better I could add what I wanted so I was able to keep the calorie count down. I will drink this pumpkin goodness again :o)
I know there must be other cheap but good Fall flavored coffee out there. Do you have a favorite place to stop and grab a cup of joe (besides Starbucks)?
