Pumpkin Coffee Now at 7-Eleven
Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin-Flavored Coffee is back at 7-Eleven for just $1 since Thursday, August 15, 2019.
“Pumpkin spice is our coffee customers’ favorite flavored drink, and we didn’t want to make them wait any longer,” said a 7-Eleven spokesperson. “With 7-Eleven’s special one dollar pricing, pumpkin spice-lovers can drink three – at morning, noon and night – for the same price they’d pay for just one latte at a coffeehouse or restaurant. And, after only six beverage purchases scanned on the 7-Eleven app, you can get a free one. That’s a big bang for your beverage buck.”
The chain said 7-Eleven pumpkin spice latte blends warm, autumn spices including cinnamon, ginger, anise and clove with creamy pumpkin. To make the seasonal launch even more of a celebration, coffee customers can create a pumpkin spice mocha by adding a pump or two of the retailer’s new chocolate sauce to their latte and topping with festive, fall-colored leaf-shaped sprinkles. International Delight pumpkin spice creamer is also available to make any hot beverage more pumpkin-y and spicy. All creamers, sweeteners, flavored syrups and toppings are available on the 7-Eleven hot beverage bar at no extra charge.
The reappearance of hot pumpkin spice beverages each year – and just as suddenly, its disappearance after the holidays, is such a phenomenon that online support groups have popped up to help fans cope with the loss of their favorite drink.
7-Eleven customers can sign up for the 7Rewards loyalty program by (1) downloading the 7‑Eleven mobile app, (2) using the 7Rewards website, (3) messaging the 7‑Eleven Bot on Facebook Messenger or (4) securing a physical 7Rewards loyalty card at a store. Members earn points on most purchases and bonus points on select products, multi-packs and promotional offers.
The 7-Eleven hot beverage bars in select stores offer lots of choices – flavored and exotic coffees, hot tea, cappuccino, lattes and hot chocolate. For no extra charge, customers can conveniently create their perfect cup with sweeteners, plain and flavored creamers, flavored syrups and toppings to suit their tastes.

Pumpkin at Bruegger’s
Bruegger’s Bagels rolled out their seasonal menu, featuring pumpkin bagels, pumpkin coffee and hearty new sandwiches, on Thursday, August 29, 2019.
Because fall isn’t fall without pumpkin spice, Bruegger’s brings back its famous Pumpkin Bagel, made with simple ingredients and then kettle-boiled and stone hearth-baked; Pumpkin cream cheese, made with pumpkin puree for a creamy, pumpkin pie-like flavor; and of course Pumpkin Spice coffee, available at participating locations, with the taste and aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice.
Returning to the breakfast sandwich menu is the fan-favorite Farmhouse Egg Sandwich, made with two fresh-cracked eggs, peppered bacon, ham, cheddar cheese, and Country Pepper cream cheese on a Cheesy Hash Brown Bagel.
At lunch, Bruegger’s offers its take on two deli favorites. The new Hot Pastrami features pastrami, Swiss cheese, red onion, diced pickle, and spicy brown mustard served up hot on an Everything Bagel. Reminiscent of a tuna melt, the Hot Tuna is made with Bruegger’s tuna salad featuring albacore tuna, mayo, red onion and a bit of Garden Veggie cream cheese for added flavor. It’s then topped with Swiss cheese, tomato and honey mustard and served hot on ciabatta.
“We all look forward to the comfort foods of fall, with their savory flavors and aromatic seasonings,” says Bruegger’s Bagels executive chef Chad Thompson. “Our deli classics with a twist and farm-inspired breakfast sandwich are just the thing as the weather gets cooler and our guests begin to crave heartier fare.”
Bruegger’s announced their 2019 fall menu in a news release.
Dairy Queen has a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard available now through September 30, 2019.

Pumpkin at Pilot
Pilot Flying J, the largest network of travel centers in North America, is debuting a new pumpkin drink this year – the Pumpkin Maple Cappuccino. Available starting Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019 until supplies last at over 550 participating Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers across the U.S., the Pumpkin Maple Cappuccino is priced starting at $1.59.
In addition, Pilot Flying J is introducing the new Cinnamon Spice Cold Brew. The five-ingredient, all-natural flavored coffee is brewed longer resulting in a sweeter, rich taste that doesn’t come with bitterness, Pilot said. The new cold brew is available at over 450 participating locations for $2.19.
The travel center’s popular pumpkin pie creamer and syrup will return to stores in September, letting anyone be a barista! Recipes to try include the Autumn Cruiser, which adds pumpkin creamer to a mix of house coffee and the Pumpkin Maple Cappuccino, and the Pumpkin Power Up, which adds caffeinated creamers and pumpkin pie creamers to cold brew.
