The Most Anticipated Fall Foods, According to You

Fall is right around the corner, and as much as the internet would like to call us all basic for secretly enjoying the cozy-flannel-wearing, pumpkin-spice-latte-drinking, orange-and gold-leaves time of year, we can’t help but love it anyway. Fall is the best time of year and that is simply a fact. But more specifically, it is the best time of year for food. And because we know you are all secretly fans of the grand ol’ spoopy season, we took to X (formerly Twitter) to ask you, “What foods are you psyched to have again in the fall? 🍁” And boy did you guys bring the cozy.

How About Them Fall Foods

“Apples! All of them except the tragically misnamed ‘red delicious'” —@kellsbells75162

Totally with @kellsbells75162 here. All apples are delicious except the “Red Delicious” ones. Whoever named those ones had obviously never tried one.

Iced Coffee Is Out

“I usually drink less coffee in the summer due to the heat. I’m looking forward to warm drink season.” —@Lekiscool

There is nothing like that first fall morning when you order a latte (pumpkin spice, obvi) and they ask you, “Hot or iced?” and you get to say, “Hot, please!” like the cozy queen you are.

Caramel Anything

“Werther’s Cinnamon Crème Caramels” —@AfirecrackerLW

Caramel is a fall flavor. It is also an all-year-round flavor. But I think it tastes best in the fall. With you on this one, @AfirecrackerLW.

“Pumpkin pie and apple dumplings are my big 2” —@BananaPhant

Yes, I still remember that many digits of pi because 25 digits was the number needed to get a free pencil on pi day in seventh grade. Don’t worry, it was worth it. The pencil had the times tables on it and I vowed to never sharpen it for fear of losing some of the times tables. Just now realizing I was a nerd, whoops. Anyways, fall’s pie game is unmatched. It deserves a free pencil.
