Introducing Starbucks’ New Fall Flavor: The Maple Pecan Latte
Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte, there’s a new Starbucks flavor in town. To help welcome fall, the massive coffee chain announced a new seasonal latte: Maple Pecan. Yes, another warming, comforting Thanksgiving pie is getting its own latte starting on Sept. 21.
As the name suggests, the Maple Pecan Latte infuses the nuttiness of a meaty, fresh pecan with the syrupy sweetness of maple.
“Our espresso shot is the core of our handcrafted beverages,” Debbie Antonio from the Starbucks Beverage Research and Development team, said in a statement. “The flavors of maple and pecan perfectly balance the inherent sweet and nutty flavors of espresso.”
A new latte isn’t all Starbucks is brewing up this autumn. The company also announced a new line of seasonal drinkware. Your PSL and MPL will come in jewel-toned cups in shades of orange, teal, and plum that help to celebrate the warmth and playfulness of fall.
