This weekend I fell a little bit off the pumpkin wagon, but it’s ok! I plan to get back on it tonight. Friday and Saturday I had pumpkin coffee from Dunks, hands down the best pumpkin coffee around. 7-11 actually has a pretty good pumpkin roast as well, but let’s not get me started on my dislike of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, or PSLs as they’re trendily called. I think they taste burnt and awful, as I feel about most of Starbucks coffee, and it doesn’t leave me with that happy fall feeling I get with other pumpkin coffees.
As for the beer, I guess I’ll keep a running list of the beers I’ve tried. Minus the one I tried 3 weeks ago and I don’t remember.
RJ Rockers is a brewery out of South Carolina. Their beer can be hard to find up here, but it’s possible. In May I tried their Son of a Peach (you guessed it!) peach beer which was sour but good. It had a strong peach taste so I expected their pumpkin beer to be just as pumpkiny. It wasn’t and I was kind of disappointed. It wasn’t a bad beer, it was actually pretty good, but I tasted no pumpkin.
AND WAIT!!!!! I did have pumpkin ice cream. It was SO GOOD it tasted like pumpkin pie in ice cream form Brusters. They apparently make a few different pumpkin ice creams, but I only had plain ol’ pumpkin. Perhaps next time I’ll try pumpkin cheesecake.
I know, this is disappointing for a whole weekend, but I did enjoy fall goodness in the form of apples and cider, and it was so hot that who could think of fall food.
