they SERIOUSLY need to make one of these completely vegan in like every city...<br>
neither of their pumpkin spice flavoring is vegan<br>
no soy whipped cream<br>
no vegan donuts or muffins <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>

I hear you! I used to love the seasonal stuff. Now I just bake my own seasonal things but the pumpkin lattes are the one thing that I really miss.<br><br>
Oh, did you see in the new VegNews magazine there's a recipe for pumpkin chocolate donuts? I'm going to try making them some time next or in October.

I have a suggestion!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Torani Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Spice are both vegan ($4.50-7, depending on where you buy). It's SO cheap to make a coffeehouse "shop" at home. I bought a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMr-Coffee-ECM160-Espresso-Machine%2Fdp%2FB000U6BSI2%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1314822020%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">$40 Espresso machine</a> (it doesn't make true espresso, just very strong coffee, but it's just as tasty if you're mixing it with flavor and non-dairy milk).<br><br>
1 shot of espresso + 3-4 pumps of Pumpkin Spice Syrup + vegan milk of choice + soy whip = Happiness <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I have a latte every morning, it comes out to less than $1 compared to $4.50 at Starbucks. Cheaper for the coffee, plus you don't have to wait in line or drive to the store.

Are you in the US?<br><br>
I haven't tried either, but they both sound good:<br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Pumpkin Pie: Embodies the rich flavor of pumpkin pie filling with complements of nutmeg, cinnamon and other warm spices. Add this traditional flavor to your lattes any time of year.<br><br>
Pumpkin Spice: True to the holiday favorite, Torani Pumpkin Spice syrup combines cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves with just the right amount of unique pumpkin flavor. Use 1 oz. to flavor lattes, mochas, cappuccinos, steamers and chai.</div>

They sell that espresso machine at Target. What's great about Amazon is the price changes, I've seen it as low as $25 (free shipping). If you like regular coffee, you can even just use that. I like my espresso machine, I buy the coffee at Sprouts and use their grinder to make it espresso-fine. If you use the Torani syrup locator, you can probably find it close by (World Market has it around fall time, I've seen it). Pumpkin puree might be too heavy, it might not dissolve well, but you can give it a try. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yup there's soy whip! I never liked whipped cream so I haven't tried it but my local health food store carries it.<br><br>
I make regular coffee every morning and put in the So Delicious hazelnut creamer. I might have to find a bottle of the pumpkin spice and use it with some original creamer this fall for my morning coffee.

Wow, I want this! My Henry's just converted to a Sprout's so they sent me all these emails and coupons, so I'm gonna try to go to redeem them and get some soy whip <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>
And if soy whip exists, I wish Starbucks would carry it! They have soy milk, they should have soy whip. I'm kind of upset that they already charge extra for soy milk, though. I know it's only 30 cents, but a coffee is already really expensive, so I rarely go anymore, unless they have specials like the Frappuccino happy hour that they had

I was pissed about the pumpkin flavors at Dunkin Donuts because they totally lied to me about it. Last year I asked an employe if there was any dairy in the syrup and she told me "no" but when she went to hand me my coffee it was a milky color and not black. I once again asked her if there was any milk in it or in the syrup and again she claimed there wasn't. I asked her to double check the bottle to make sure. She came back and again told me no dairy whatsoever. I asked her why my black coffee was a white milky color then? She claimed it <i>was</i> because of the pumpkin syrup but there was NO dairy/milk in it. Another employee and a manager both came over to see what was going on (since I was holding up the line) and they both assured me that there was NO dairy in the syrup . I still didn't trust them and I didn't drink it. I brought it home with me and jumped right online to look up the ingredients. Sure enough DAIRY is listed!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br>
I immediately emailed them to let them know what happened. They responded a day or so later saying they would have the manager of that location contact me. The manager never contacted me so I emailed the company a second time letting them know. Again they sent me an email saying he would contact me which of course once again never happened. I now refuse to go to that Dunkin location.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

I wish Starbucks had vegan bakery items, too. I'm surprised they don't actually, they have that new vegan meal, they should have some vegan muffins or cakes or something. Does anyone know if any of their prepackaged biscotti is vegan? I used to love those. Dunkin Donuts, of course I wish had vegan donuts, but it doesn't surprise me that they don't. Somehow I expect it more from Starbucks. I think eventually more places will have vegan options, like how now more places are having veggie burgers, Starbucks added that vegan meal, etc. There is a noticeable spread of veg*n options, it's just not moving as fast as I'd like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Soy whip is really expensive, they'll never carry it. It's not mainstream like soy milk either. Some places charge 60 cents for soy. If you have a registered gift card, it's free.

Seriously! I got an offer from Starbucks to try one of their "munchkin" desserts for free and not ONE was dairy-free. I love Starbucks, but come on..adding dairy to the pumpkin spice mix, WTFFF. I wonder if Caribou Coffee has vegan-friendly pumpkin spice mixes... hmm?!
