Just in time for the fall season when
loads of coffee drinkers go raving mad
over the polarizing pumpkin spice
latte! PS: Those will hit Starbucks stores on September 8th and be
prepared in case you haven't heard: It now has a slightly new formula
that includes real pumpkin. Mars candy has now jumped into the fray by offering their sweet candy-covered chocolate M&Ms that (for some) has become an autumn flavor classic: Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Not much is known about the
pending reveal except that a female M&M is featured wearing glasses, a scarf and
holding a latte. Perhaps this is being marketed to brainy women who get cold in the
office? Either way, the poor M&M guy from the regular pumpkin spice bag looks like he lost his job.
No word from Starbucks if they are worried about the new competition in the marketplace. And, speaking of Starbucks, if you can't wait two more weeks to get your pumpkin-spice latte fix, you can make it at home via our very own recipe: Mom.me Pumpkin Spice Latte.

M&Ms did recently unveil a pecan-pie-flavored treat in all
fall colors to mixed reviews.
Whatever the takeaway, it looks like it's officially turning to fall and summer will soon become a distant, plain M&M candy-coated memory.
