What's cookin', gourd lookin'?

Even though it doesn’t feel like autumn in the Old Pueblo, we’re still declaring it “Pumpkin Spice Season.” That’s right, bring us every orange-colored, nutmeg-dusted, pumpkin-spiced drink and treat to satisfy our basic gourd-shaped hearts. Consider this your local roundup of some essential pumpkin spice products you need to pick up this season.

We’ll be updating this article as drinks and treats become available.

Better Bevs

210 N. Fourth Ave.

The shop on Fourth Avenue has a Pumpkin-themed cold brew on the menu. The iced coffee is topped with pumpkin spice sweet cream cold foam.

Better Than Provisions

Online ordering & at Multiple Locations

Better Than Provisions believes you shouldn’t limit the joy of pumpkin spice flavors to one season and we tend to agree. We think you’ll love their pumpkin spice-flavored granola as much as we do… all year long. Premium nuts with comforting cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Yum!

Read our September 2022 article “Packaging Wellness: The Success of Better Than Provisions.”
