I usually steer away from the pastry selections at major chain coffee shops. I always fear that they have been there for 3 weeks, and have been sprayed with some sort of glossy spray to make them look appetizing, but the great pumpkin quest calls......
Pumpkin Experience #7 was the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin at Starbucks. The muffin part was ok, not super pumpkiny though. There was a cream cheese icing dollop wedged into the top of the muffin, which was very good, but made it seem more like carrot cake than pumpkin muffin. Next time I'll just opt for a tub of cream cheese icing and coffee.
Pumpkinocity: 2 out of 10
Number of hours of insomnia after a tub of cream cheese icing: 73
