So here's my lunch. Ham and cheese on a potato bagel, the Sun Chips version of Doritios, and my well-blended drink. The official description for Frozen Pumpkin Pie is "An indulgent blended frozen drink that tastes just like a pumpkin pie. It is topped with whipped cream pumpkin and sauce drizzle." There's nothing pretty on top like the advertised pictured, but whatever, taste is my concern today.
Now watching this thing get made was a little scary. I couldn't see everything, but I did notice ice, milk(?), and a container full of an orange/brown sauce. I may have seen caramel too. Now that all seems straight forward, but then he pops open the super blender and throws in half of a big pumpkin cookie to get things started. Interesting. (side note: why not give me the other half? hehehehe)
I take my first sip and it literally tastes like ice cold, pumpkin pie flavored milk.
Ok, I've now finished (most of) this drink and I'm still not sure what kind of verdict I should give to it. On the one hand, this drink is going to be too much for some of us. It's just that strong. On the other hand, if you adore pumpkin spice and are sick of companies only bringing hints and vibes of the flavor, than this drink is for you. I'm literally torn between saying this drink is an epic masterpiece or saying this drink is just way too much to handle. It's so strong.... but it's good... but it's too strong... but it's drinkable pumpkin pie... AHHHH!
Seriously though, I'm at a loss. My belly is stuffed full of beverage and bagel and I can't make a decision. It is pure, pumpkin spice flavor with all it's potent, glorious mojo still intact. It just happens to be in the form of ice cold milk so it goes down super easy. If this was say 20-25% weaker, I could foresee getting this often. As it is though, I.... I.... I don't think I'm man enough to handle it more than once. I kept going "so spicy" -sip- "It's too strong" -sip-sip- "So full" -sip- "so cold".
Ha, I just realized something. If anything, it will at least wake up your taste buds!
Ok, you make your own decision on this one, good luck!
