As soon as the clock strikes midnight on September 1, all things pumpkin spice appear as if out of thin air. And for good reason—the sweet, spicy combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice is deliciously reminiscent of everything we love about autumn, like cozy sweaters, fall foliage, and football season. But let's not limit ourselves to pumpkin spice: there are many other seasonal flavors that evoke that warm-and-tingling fall feeling, like cranberry, cinnamon, maple, and more. That's why we tested 157 fall-flavored items to find these six winners. We promise they'll satisfy your autumn cravings and make you feel cozy all season long.
