Pumpkin Spice ... Frappuccino?

After a recommendation from my colleague Caitlin Fertal, my Thursday afternoon coffee treat this week was a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. Yup, you read that right. Not the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino.

I love how Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte really tastes like fall. But when the weather is as warm as it was today, I'm not ready for a hot cup of autumn spices. Fortunately, for days like today, you can get the famous fall drink as the blended Frappuccino. (By the way, that website has some fun time-wasters, like a remix soundboard and a drink builder.)

The Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino reminded me of the pumpkin-flavored ice cream we made in the fall at the ice cream place where I worked in high school. It was a good, refreshing taste of fall when I'm not quite ready to let go of summer.
