New Pumpkin Spice Hard Seltzer Sounds Perfect For Fall

If it seems like everything tends to get a pumpkin spice makeover in the fall, you’re not wrong. From coffee and beer to cookies and bread, there are always dozens of pumpkin-flavored treats to choose from.

And now, you can add hard seltzer to that list. The brand Vive is now making pumpkin spice hard seltzer. The company says the drink delivers an aroma and taste that will be familiar to anyone who loves pumpkin spice.

Unfortunately, it will only be offered at Kroger stores in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee beginning in September, so you’ll have to live there to get your hands on some. You’ll find it in those three states for a suggested price of $9.99 per six-pack.

If you don’t live in an area with the new pumpkin spice seltzer, you can instead grab some pumpkin-flavored beer from Samuel Adams. You’ll find new Jack-O Pumpkin Ale, fan-favorite OctoberFest and a Sweater Weather Variety Pack.

Jack-O features cinnamon and nutmeg aromas and seasonal spices to bring in the taste of freshly baked pumpkin pie, while OctoberFest blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel for a roasty sweetness. You can get both Jack-O and OctoberFest, plus classics Boston Lager and Sam ‘76, in the Sweater Weather Variety Pack for a limited time nationwide for $17.99 for a 12-pack or $28.99 for a 24-pack.

Looking for something to snack on with your pumpkin spice seltzer or beer? There are already plenty of fall-themed snacks to choose from.

If you’d rather make your own pumpkin spice treats, Pillsbury now has pumpkin cookie dough with cream cheese-flavored chips. Not only can you bake with the dough, but it is also safe to eat raw if you prefer it that way instead.

Nestlé Toll House also has pumpkin spice filled baking truffles you can mix into pancakes, cookies, cakes and more. Each truffle is covered in a white sugar candy shell and filled with warm spices. They’re $2.48 for a 9-ounce bag at Walmart.
