Pumpkintastic! Starbucks Pumpkin Scone

This is the last of the Starbucks entries, I promise. Unless I try their pumpkin loaf, or a frappucino version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, that is. 

The pumpkin scone is topped with a light white glaze and an orange-colored swirl. It has a hint of orange zest, and I’m not sure if it’s coming from the frosting or the scone itself, or both. It adds a tinge of complexity to something that could be plain and straightforward. 

However, given the choice between a scone and a muffin, I’ll pick the muffin every time. Scones go well with coffee, but it’s because they’re usually so dry you’re required to take a sip of something afterwards to quench your parched tongue. Still, you could do much worse than this, especially if you need a carb fix in the morning. 

Rating (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest): 3 pumpkins
