I am not sure if I’ve ever said this, but fall is my favorite time of year. Of course I love the holidays but there is just something magical about fall.
I think part of it is the summer and it’s awful heat finally go away. The leaves changing, the fact that I can wear jeans everyday, the use of pumpkins as decoration. It all makes my heart pitter patter just a bit!
The other reason why I love fall- Anniversary Blend. Yes, Anniversary Blend is my favorite coffee at Starbucks. The full spicy aroma gets my senses all a tingle. And then that first sip of it’s extra bold flavor envelopes my taste buds in this mixture of nutty, cinnamon notes. The acidity rolls off my tongue and leaves a clean finish that always leaves me satisfied yet lusting for more. In case you are wondering, I am talking about coffee.
It is complex, smooth and balanced. The touch of aged Sumatra gives it a depth and spice unlike any other coffee we carry. It immediately makes me think of comfort foods. Foods of fall and holidays like butternut squash, pecan pie, and pumpkin cheesecake!
And then you see the bag! The bag is a beautiful bronzy finish with burnt orange writing. Totally fall leaves right? And the logo. See, this coffee is not only special because of the aged Sumatra and because it’s commemorative but because it has the “naughty” old school siren on it. You know the one that isn’t shy about showing her stuff! It is the logo I think of when I think of Starbucks. It is the logo this company was founded on. And to make it really special, she always comes off very seductive and bewitching on the bag. Again fall themes right?!
