From Pumpkin Patch to Bakery: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Pumpkin Spice Latte isn’t the only pumpkin in the family – have you ever met (or tried) PSL’s tasty cousin, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin? This tasty treat is filled with delectable cream cheese frosting and topped with candied pumpkin seeds, and has the same great warm spice flavor you love.
While PSL is our most famous pumpkin flavored treat, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin is just as delicious. Read on to discover some not-so-well-known facts about this muffin.
- Pumpkins get their red-orange color from the pigment known as beta carotene. Telling yourself this helps you enjoy the rich, creamy indulgence even more.
- Like PSL, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin has its own acronym here in the Starbucks office – PCCM.
- This tasty muffin is packed with real pumpkin, just like you’d pick from the pumpkin patch.
- An average-size pumpkin makes about fifty Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. We needed a seriously large wheelbarrow to get all those pumpkins to our bakery.
