We know we have made it to fall when we take our morning walk through the mall and the air is immediately filled with smells of apple, pumpkin, and cinnamon! Some of our favorite treats make their debut this time of year, so today we are sharing 5 eateries that are putting the spotlight on items they are adding to their menu for the fall season. And let us tell you, they do not disappoint! We put our taste buds to the test and tried all of these fall flavors! Ready to hear our thoughts? Let’s indulge…

1. Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen has put their own creamy twist on the classic fall dessert – pie – with pumpkin and apple pie blizzards! The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard® Treat has pieces of pie crust and pumpkin pie filling blended with their signature vanilla soft serve, and they topped it off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

For someone who is in love with pumpkin anything, like I am, I wasn’t surprised when I fell in love with this sweet treat. Who needs a pie when I can just grab a few of these to bring to Thankgiving this year (I’m kidding… kind of). – Niki

The one we weren’t so sure on was the Apple Pie Blizzard® – only because we are strong believers that there is simply nothing better than the warm and gooey goodness of a slice of apple pie.

Within the first few bites, I could taste the apple and cinnamon combo, and my worried were put to rest! This one definitely exceeded my expectations. It has bits of apple and cinnamon chunks and they also topped it off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I will definitely be going back for another! – Niki

2. Rising Bread Co.

If you’ve never had bread putting, this might be your perfect place to try it! The Pumpkin Bread Pudding from Rising Bread Co. is primarily made up of bread, milk, pumpkin, spices, and other necessary ingredients.

“Rising Bread Co.’s Pumpkin Bread Pudding is the perfect treat for when you need a sweet pick-me-up. I’m guilty of having a sweet tooth, so with the soft texture and bold flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon, it fulfills all my sweet tooth cravings!” – Olivia

3. Lighthouse Coffee

We love having so many places to stop for our daily dose of caffeine (we prefer coffee), and we always count down the days until Lighthouse Coffee brings out their Pumpkin Spice Latte and Caramel Apple Cider. We’ve made it part of our daily routine to test out the fall menus of each of our coffee shops, you know, just to make sure everything tastes okay!

I am one of those people that marks on my calendar when certain fall foods make their debut, and you bet the Caramel Apple Cider form Lighthouse was one of them… It’s one of those drinks you simply can’t imitate, and I love the texture and flavor of the added caramel. Definitely add this one to your must-try list! – Niki 

“There is nothing I love more than warming up with a hot a coffee on a chilly fall morning. Lighthouse’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is one of my favorite fall flavors because of its rich spices and yummy whip cream. It’s hard for other PSL’s to compare!” – Olivia

4. Cinamen Roll Co.

If Cinnamon Sugar Bites or Caramel Roll Bites aren’t on your list of must-haves when you’re at the mall, they should be – and lucky for us, they are available all year round for us to indulge! They are the perfect bite sized snack for on-the-go shopping, or to sit and share (if you dare).

“If you’ve ever come to the mall in the morning and smelled the sweet cinnamon aroma filling the hallways, this is the culprit. It is nearly impossible not to crave their caramel roll bites. It is a classic stop for any avid West Acres shopper!” – Niki

5. Moxie Java

Rounding out our top fall flavors is Moxie Java with their rendition of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and a new one for apple lovers – an Apple Pie Latte! While Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been a classic go-to for many during the fall season, they really can vary in flavor, and Moxie’s definitely makes our top 3 when it comes to where we love to go for a quick PSL.

“Although I have the blessing of working in the mall with Moxie Java being a quick walk from my office, I will still go out of my way on a weekend to drive over for a Moxie Pumpkin Spice Latte. It has second-to-none flavor that definitely has me craving more… Like 8:45pm, mall almost closed but I have to go get one, kind of craving!” – Niki

And if you’re in the mood for something new, but simply can’t escape the craving for anything fall, the Apple Pie Latte is a must-try. It’s really like Apple Pie in a cup in our eyes!

“One of my favorite things about fall and winter time is that it is acceptable to drink anything apple, any time of the day! Moxie Java’s Apple Pie Latte is a must-try. It is an interesting combination of everything I love, that just hits the spot – it is easily on my favorites list for fall.” – Olivia


Now it’s time to wipe the drool off your face and come satisfy your craving with endless fall flavor. The only question is – what shall it be first?
