I'm not a pumpkin lover, but I think I am now.

It's that time of year. You can't escape it. The store shelves, the office, your own home. Everywhere you look all you see is PUMPKIN.

So if you're over the whole pumpkin thing, I get it. I was too. Until I was scrolling Facebook and was stopped dead in my tracks by the most delicious-looking pumpkin drink I've ever laid eyes on.

I'm not a huge pumpkin-flavored lover. But for some reason, I'm the biggest sucker for a good piece of pumpkin pie. Let's get one thing straight though. I don't just like pumpkin pie on its own. It needs a HEAVY scoop of some delicious homemade whipped cream.

Looking at the picture posted by Velvet Robot Coffee Lab, that whipped cream on top looks INCREDIBLE.

Rockford's Velvet Robot Coffee Lab has two Rockford locations -

  1. 116 N Madison St
  2. 1292 S. Alpine Rd

Their menu has plenty of yummy drinks to choose from that aren't fall-flavored. But if you're looking to indulge in your favorite, or maybe fall in love with the flavor of pumpkin, I'd check out this pumpkin pie treat they're offering for the season.
