The Best Thing I Tasted This Week

The days are getting cooler, the nights seem to be starting a little earlier…Fall’s in the air, and Thanksgiving’s around the corner. Twitter was all abuzz a few weeks ago about the seasonal arrival of a certain pumpkin flavoured beverage in coffee shops. I prefer my pumpkin in a pie, and my coffee in a cup, so I was not jumping on that bandwagon. My straight-up brewed coffee was doing the trick of waking me up and keeping me going.

Last week I was introduced to something that changed my mind, and changed the season for me. New for Fall from Second Cup, I ordered the Cinnamon Swirl Latte and fell in love with my caffeine bevvie. It’s an espresso based drink which combines cinnamon and a hint of white chocolate (my weakness) and tastes like heaven in a mug.
I paired it with a Mini Cinnamon Swirl shortbread cookie and suggest you do the same. These little treats are just a little bigger than a loonie, and cost just that. They pack a flavourful punch, and gave me just the jolt of sugar I needed mid-afternoon.

Fall always seems like an unfairly short season to me. We’ll be sipping hot chocolates by the fire before we know it, but in the meantime enjoy the turning of the leaves, the crispness in the air and a Second Cup Cinnamon Swirl Latte.
This is not a sponsored post. I was invited to try some of Second Cup’s seasonal flavours, but have since become addicted and purchased this deliciousness all on my own.
