MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 25, 2022
Caribou Coffee, a national premium coffeehouse and Panera Brands portfolio concept, is inviting pumpkin-loving guests and beyond to enjoy the highly anticipated return of its fall menu. Available starting today, August 25 at all Caribou coffeehouses, the seasonal offerings feature craveable guest favorites such as the Pumpkin White Mocha and the Pumpkin Latte, as well as Caribou’s original Pumpkin Crafted Press. Caribou is also offering alternatives for non-pumpkin, harvest flavor fans including the Apple Blast and the upgraded Maple Waffle Breakfast Sandwich.
Caribou Coffee is committed to serving customers quality products that they can feel good about even when indulging in seasonal offerings. Like all handcrafted beverages at Caribou, each delicious drink on the fall menu lineup is made using only premium ingredients, with no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
“To welcome the new season and cooler months ahead, we are thrilled to launch our highly anticipated Caribou Coffee fall menu, filled with signature pumpkin and apple flavors our customers love,” said Matt Reiter, vice president of product at Caribou Coffee. “Our seasonal beverages, made with only real ingredients, pair perfectly with our unique, limited-time food menu items. Both will have guests delighting in the flavors of fall while feeling good about what they are consuming.”
