Pumpkin Spice Latte........

McDonald's has introduced it's Pumpkin Spice Latte for the Fall:

Enjoy a fall drink perfect for warming up to the crisp autumn air. Our pumpkin spice latte is freshly brewed and spiced to perfection with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors. Espresso made from Rainforest Alliance Certified Beans™ blends with steamed whole or nonfat milk for a delicious latte treat that’s cozy and relaxing.  

I decided to have one as a small is on for $1.00 at the moment.  Total fail for me, too sweet and icky.  I'll stick to my plain skim milk latte's in future.

Bought a box of these the other day:

Special K Nourish* Dark Chocolate Chunks & Almond bars are made with real visible ingredients and big pieces of nuts, fruits and grains which can be seen vividly through the clear wrapper. No artificial colours or flavours, gluten free and all for an affordable price.

I like nuts, I like chocolate, but generally don't like them together.  However in this case this is so good and tasty and well worth a try.

So a hit and a miss on new things I have tried.  How about you have you tried anything new recently that you loved or hated?

I love pumpkin pie, but I hate all these pumpkin flavored things. And, I don't drink coffee at all. The box of Kellogs you showed--I am allergic to cashews and any wheat. It sure looks delicious.

Pumpkin spice latte sounds very inviting but alas! I tried the Starbucks version last year and it was too sweet for me too. If you brew your own coffee at home, you might want to sprinke a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon on top of the coffee grounds. Just very little. It tastes good.

They are FULL of calories and sugar. I really like them but only allow myself one per season. I had it yesterday. I was trying to grocery shop with blood sugar in the gutter.

Pumpkin Spice Latte sounds pretty disgusting to me, so will not be trying that one any time soon.

I do like pumpkin pie, muffins, or cake, but I don't get the point to putting the flavour into all sorts of other things.

I attended an embassy event going on here, and tried Arabian coffee. It's stronger than what we have in North America, and I was surprised that I liked it. I don't go for what we have here at all.
