Taste Test: 

I went to Starbucks and Dunkin’ yesterday to taste which drink is better. First is Starbucks. The Pumpkin Spice Latte was amazing! It wasn’t too sweet, but you could still taste the pumpkin flavor. The drink was warm and delicious. I would definitely recommend this drink and would totally order it again. The drink from Dunkin’ is a different story. When I first sipped it, I could not taste any pumpkin at all. It tasted like straight black coffee. I mixed it up for about 2 minutes and then I finally could taste the pumpkin. The pumpkin flavoring wasn’t the best. It was super sweet and overwhelming. In my opinion, the Starbucks latte is so much better than Dunkin’s. It has better taste and a better nutritional value! Overall I would recommend the one from Starbucks.
