Help Us Find the McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Up north, the arrival of the McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is a BIG event. It’s bigger than college football, bigger even than deer season.
About this time of year, crowds begin to form outside the local McDonald’s in the evenings after work. People bring their kids and they stand in the crisp autumn air and peer into the windows and smear them with their hot breath. Day after day they wait.

And then it happens. The Pumpkin Spice Lattes are in! How happy the people are!

Why is this so important to people? The McDonald’s Pumpkin Spice Latte is perfect for warming up in the aforementioned crisp autumn air. It’s freshly brewed and spiced to perfection with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors. Yes, steamed with whole or nonfat milk, it’s a delicious latte treat that’s cozy and relaxing and worth every minute of waiting. And it only costs a couple of bucks, maybe three or so.

And now the bad news – badder than even the seeming absence of Hungry Howie Pumpkin Spice Bread in local shops – is that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are only available at SELECT McDonald’s and of ALL the McDonald’s along the Grand Strand, we can’t find one that has the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Now that doesn’t mean it’s not there. It just means that we haven’t found it yet.

We’ll keep looking.
Please report in if you find it.

The Pumpkin Invasion

Way down south, down around Pawley’s Island, there is a Smoothie King. Or so it is said among mariners plying the dangerous reefs off the Carolina Coast. And when those tired, rough, men and women of the sea put in to port, the one thing they want is a pumpkin smoothie.

At Smoothie King, they can get that need met.

Starting today, you can belly up to the bar with five different pumpkin smoothies. All feature organic pumpkin that’s naturally high in vitamin A and fiber, is high in protein and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Here are the five: New Keto Champ Pumpkin, Pumpkin Coffee High Protein, Vegan Pumpkin, Slim-N -Trim Pumpkin and Pumpkin D-Lite. Remember.

Go easy on the pumpkin. In another 60 days you’re going to have had so much pumpkin you’re going to be having pumpkin nightmares.

Smoothie King is at 10225 Ocean Hwy, Pawleys Island, SC, matey.
