22. Pumpkin Spice Drinks — Krystal

I have to admit something: Anything that has “pumpkin spice” as an ingredient, pretty much has my attention.

So, when I came across the Pumpkin Spice drinks from mini-burger emporium Krystal, this had to get a taste test, and, oh man, does it pass the test. Now, I have to be honest here: This pumpkin spice drink is not like Starbucks, and that is, in a lot of ways, a good thing. The drinks come in two kinds, milkshake or hot cocoa, and both would make for a splendid taste that would be heaven to your taste buds for the holiday season.

If you are not into pumpkin spice, Krystal has another drink that could be up your alley for the season. The Red Hots Slushie takes those famous Red Hots candies and put them in a slush to create a drink that stings a bit, but goes down smoother than moonshine on a Thursday morning (please don’t drink moonshine in the mornings)

Both of these drinks will make for a great treat on a cold holiday morning if you’re near a Krystal. If not, I will say a small prayer for you (bowing head).
