Apple Pie à la Mode


Yes, there are chunky sweaters and now you can drink all the warm drinks you desire, but we all know what the best part of autumn is: the food. As you welcome the crispy air and the crunchy leaves beneath your feet, you can’t help but begin to crave the customary flavors of fall.

Reveling in these tantalizing tastes will make you happier than a jack-o-lantern. Goodbye summer and hello to fall foods!

  1. Pumpkin

Skip the lattes and head for what you’re really craving: pumpkin spiced desserts. We have three pumpkin options for you this fall, and we can’t wait to hear what you think:


The original pumpkin spice craze starts with this delicious pie, with its signature spice mixture and a buttery crust.

Autumn Treat© Ice Cream

Sure, summer is prime time ice cream time, but this is a fall flavor treat with pumpkin, pecans, and cinnamon.


  1. Warm Fruit

When it gets cold outside, we start heating everything up — and when it comes to apples, that means the richest, tangiest, most make-you-think-of-grandma flavors and scents in the world. We take the fall fun further with warm cherries, maple, nuts, and caramel drizzles; basically, a fall explosion.

  1. Cranberry

Don’t even get us started. Every year, it’s like we forget how much we love cranberries, but then the leaves start to change and it’s like we want to belly-flop into a bog. The bright bite of a cranberry is the perfect accent in a fall dish, whether you’re pairing it with bacon, wild rice or leftover turkey.
