Fall Foods

Charlize Carver, Food Reporter

With the fall season coming up, it’s time to start thinking of the fun food options; thankfully Lakewood is strong in this area. There are tons of fun options in Lakewood to have a festive fall season that incorporates food, such as store specials and home cooking recipes and ideas. 

There are many stores in Lakewood that have specials to make the season come to life. Starbucks and many of the local coffee shops start incorporating pumpkin spice and apple products to their products to give us that fall feeling. At Starbucks this year, they have the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Apple Crisp Macchiato and Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. They also have incorporated more fall foods into their selection such as the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, Pumpkin Scone and a Fox Cake Pop. Caffeine, a local coffee shop, also has fall specials; some of these coffees are the Fall Harvest Latte, Pumpkin Heaven, Sweater Weather and Pumpkin Spice Latte. The number of different coffee shops in Lakewood gives us tons of options to pick from; every menu has a different selection.

Grocery stores during this season start putting products on the shelves such as more pumpkin products, apple products and cinnamon products. Some grocery stores that are great to go to in Lakewood are Marc’s, Giant Eagle and Urban Bulk Foods. There are many homemade recipes for this fall; one very popular category is pie. Some options are Pumpkin, Apple and Pecan. These are great pies to make; try to make them from scratch or buy pie fillers for a quick fix. You can also make caramel apples as a quick snack.

Fall is a great season to think of festive foods.
