Pumpkin season!

(I've meant to do this post for over a month. It's just taken some time for me to actually do it!)

If you know me, you know I LOVE a PSL! This year, I decided I was going to compare the pumpkin creamers offered at grocery stores just to see if a) they compare or b) if I could save any money by not going to Starbucks all the time. 😂

I tried four - Coffeemate, Starbucks, Kroger, and Natural Bliss. (I really wanted to get the International Delight because I love their creamers, but I only saw the sugar free in store. Plus, I'm going to be drinking pumpkin creamer for a WHILE, so it's ok that I didn't have a fifth one! hahahaha)

This afternoon, I made a pot of coffee and tried these four in a line up. Here are my thoughts!




Coffeemate offered the frothiest option (when I used the frother), and I really enjoyed that. Also, "spicy" was the first thought that came to my mind when I tasted it. I loved that because it reminded me of a chai tea latte, which is my favorite non-coffee drink to order!



Y'all. Honestly? I bought this creamer and the Cinnamon Dolce one (since that's my #1 Starbucks beverage option), and I was so let down. I knew they wouldn't taste the same as what I get from my favorite place, but come on, Starbucks. I don't even feel like they are that similar. (Also, I'm not a critic, so this is hard for me...but I wouldn't buy again and won't finish these.)



Ok, Kroger! Come through! This one is the sweetest. It frothed at first, but it quickly dissipated and just became smooth. So enjoyable!



 The Natural Bliss option isn't as sweet or pumpkin-y, but I'm sure it's probably also the healthiest! If you want a good option that tastes like fall with only a few ingredients that you can pronounce, this is your winner!

Final decision: I would go for the Coffeemate or the Kroger brand! My #1 fave is the Coffeemate!
