Waste Not

I Love Pumpkins | December 22, 2008

Pumpkin friends… if you’re living in a dream world where you don’t mind creating a lot of litter every time you drink a cup of coffee, this one might be for you. I’ve never tasted it because I don’t have one of those single-serving coffee makers. The coffee might be good but must life really [...]

Gas Station Coffee

I Love Pumpkins | December 4, 2008

Chevron gas stations are serving machine-made Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I applaud them for the effort; it’s a brilliant idea. However, the execution is terrible.
Smells like… nothing. Tastes like… weak, watered-down coffee with stale cinnamon.
This Chevron was a few blocks away from San Francisco’s Superior Court, where I went to contest a red-light infraction. You’d be happier with their coffee. Their coffee [...]

Peet’s Coffee: Spiced Pumpkin Latte

I Love Pumpkins | December 2, 2008

Now here’s a Pumpkin Latte you can believe in! Amazingly smooth and mellow pumpkin taste.
It’s not too sweet, not too sugary, and… once you’re past the foam, you discover that it’s not artificially colored either. Remember that orangey color you found in Starbucks’ Pumpkin Latte? You won’t find it here and you probably won’t miss [...]

What happens to a dream deferred?

I Love Pumpkins | November 30, 2008

Back on the East Coast last week, I was able to find Coffeemate’s fantastic Pumpkin Spice creamer, which just isn’t available anywhere in the Bay Area this year! Wishes fulfilled.
Remember the article about Pumpkinzing Your Coffee? Coffeemate won hands-down versus International Delight. If you can find Coffeemate’s Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer where you live, you may [...]

Pumpkinize Your Coffee: Coffeemate vs. Int’l Delight

I Love Pumpkins | November 17, 2008

It takes a lot of International Delight to deliver creamy satisfaction in your coffee. When you get there, you’ll discover an emphasis on spice. Their Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer tastes mostly like cinnamon. It’s pretty good, but the packaging delivers more pumpkin satisfaction than creamer itself.
I strongly prefer Coffee-mate’s Pumpkin Spice creamer. It turns your coffee into a simulacra of Pumpkin Pie. [...]

EAT IT UP! Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival

I Love Pumpkins | October 28, 2008

There was a plethora of pumpkin tastes at the 2008 Half Moon Bay Arts & Pumpkin Festival. But believe it or not, the longest line at any food stand was the line for… Troop 263 BSA French Fries! 
Don’t forget to also read about Pumpkin Festival Fashion and Pumpkin Festival Fights.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

I Love Pumpkins | October 26, 2008

Mmm… whipped cream. Burying your lips in the whipped cream – which is sprinkled with pumpkin spices – is surely the most delicious part of this experience. If only the entire cup were filled with whipped cream… it’s sweet and delicious… it sticks to your lips making them smooth and greasy… it’s… it’s…
Enough of that!!
The [...]
