Cider… no can do on the pumpkin spice. Plus Apple Cider brings back memories of Bell’s Apple Orchard in Illinois, where we would go and pick apples every Fall, and yes, @thumperchick get Apple Cider Donuts!!
@cinoclav Oh, I’ll bet! I grew up in New England and lived right across the street to the back of a big orchard. Soooo good! Here in Alabama… the few things that pass for an apple orchard… not the same. No homestyle bakeries that I’ve found yet either. All chains. My daughter lives in MN so in the fall I visit and one of the first places we go is one of the large orchards and particularly those with a bakery (actually just like the one you’re mentioning), hay rides, mazes, etc. I love love love it.
Apple cider. For drinking. I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin roll, etc… but I do not like drinking pumpkin spice anything. And, I avoid Starbucks like the plague that it is but, their caramel apple spice drink is… da bomb! There’s no gentle sipping with that one around here.
