Yesterday was the first day of fall, but I’ve been seeing seasonal fall products in stores for a while now, along with Halloween candy (ugh, why the rush?)!

Fall is my favorite season. I just love the cool, crisp air and the beautiful fall foliage. And I also like many of the limited-edition seasonal flavored items available in stores, coffee shops (can we say Pumpkin Spice Latte – yum!), bakeries, restaurants, etc., especially pumpkin spice.

Seasonal Fall Flavors

Even if you don’t have a fall season where you live, you can still enjoy the flavors of fall. Some other flavors of the season besides the most popular, pumpkin spice, include:

Caramel/salted caramel
(*Apple picking is a favorite fall activity and favorite ingredient in fall recipes!)
