Where to Get Your Pumpkin Spice Fix in the Hudson Valley

Yes, pumpkin spice season is here in the Hudson Valley, with coffees, teas, and treats to celebrate everyone's favorite autumnal flavor.

Few things signal fall quite like the aromatic mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and ginger. Sure, there are leaf-peeping drives and corn maze meanders to celebrate the season. But when it comes down to it, pumpkin spice is the true herald of autumn’s much-anticipated arrival.

While some may say that nothing compares to a certain big-name latte, the Hudson Valley holds its own on the pumpkin spice front. Here are a few local products to satiate your #PumpkinSpice cravings.

Boba Tea, Tea Talk

Poughkeepsie

Bubble tea is a year-round treat, but Tea Talk brings delicious options for fall flavors. The Poughkeepsie spot emulates the delicious qualities of pumpkin pie in a house special. For the base, Tea Talk uses green chai tea to bring subtle spice. Then a combination of taro milk, Thai milk, and a dash of nutmeg creates a real winner. Drink this hot for maximum coziness or add classic tapioca boba pearls to the iced version.

Candies, Samuel’s Sweet Shop

Rhinebeck

This sweet shop is famous for Paul Rudd and its samplers, so naturally we had to include the Autumn Candycopia Sampler. Pumpkin spice malted milk balls and red apple caramels are among the six expertly paired sweets that combine to be a perfect distillation of fall in candy form.

The Hudson Valley’s favorite convenience store doesn’t disappoint when it comes to fall flavors. The family-owned chain delights with pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin donuts, and two pumpkin ice cream flavors: pumpkin pie and “Pumpkin to Talk About,” a pumpkin-cheesecake swirl with churro pieces. While you’re there, try out the apple cider donuts, apple fritters, and apple spice muffins, too.

You may have seen Finding Home Farms’ maple syrup on store shelves around the Hudson Valley, but did you know the Orange County farm does a pumpkin spice version, too?

Pro tip: Take your a.m. spread to the next level by pairing this syrup with a tall stack of pumpkin pancakes or waffles.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte Cupcakes, The Cakery

Fishkill

When it comes to cupcakes, The Cakery has the perfect formula for pretty much every flavor you could crave. This fall, the Fishkill sweet shop brings it with pumpkin spiced latte, Nutella cream cheese pumpkin, pumpkin, white chocolate pumpkin, and pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes. Not enough pumpkin for you? The Cakery also does the flavor in cake pop and regular cake form.

In addition to its stellar lineup of craft coffees and smoothies, Ready Coffee brings all the fall feels with its seasonal drink menu. While the pumpkin spice latte is a must for PSL lovers, the brown sugar cinnamon latte and salted caramel mocha are worthy sips when you’ve finally imbibed all the pumpkin you can handle. 

Pumpkin Cookies, Halfsies Cookie Company

Marlboro

Known for its over-the-top cookies, Halfsies hits a home run with its seasonal pumpkin flavors. Your best bet for scoring a cookie pack is to follow the brand on Instagram, where it announces its limited-edition cookie drops.
