Pumpkintastic! Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin




Sorry, just licking my monitor.

For a chain, Starbucks makes mighty fine muffins. Take this little confection, for example. They could have mailed it in, just throwing some pumpkin bread mix into some muffin tins and charging people $1.95 for something to absorb their coffee. 

Instead, they throw in some nice details, like the dab of cream cheese in the middle, or the roasted pumpkin seeds around the edge of the muffin top. The pumpkin seeds, really, are what make this item stand out. They add one more layer of flavor and texture to an already good thing. 

The muffin is not too dry, and not too moist, although it can sit in the Starbucks bag for a couple days and not lose its freshness. (Normally, they’re gone within minutes. But I once bought one for my husband, and he didn’t get around to eating it, so I decided after two days to take matters into my own hands, and face.)

Rating (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest): 5 pumpkins
