Hometown Cravings; Makeshift S’mores!

City: Columbus, GA
Stop: Origin Coffee
Drink: Maple spice,  Spiced brown sugar, Toasted marshmallow
 
     Hey everyone! I’m bringing in the new week with a new favorite flavor from- you guessed it- Origin Coffee. I may or may not be completely enamored with them. The workers there are more than happy to work with me as I hardly ever get the same flavor twice. They have been fantastic sports, so I have to give them props! Seriously, they’re just wonderful and I can’t hype them enough.
 
     I was going for a less cohesive S’mores flavor with this combination and I really thought that the spice would harken to the best season as it’s lurking right around the corner. Honestly, I wasn’t disappointed. I’ve really gotten to where I’m feeling some spiced flavors lately. I even found myself enjoying a pumpkin spice variant that I’ll be rounding up in a list for you guys in about 3 weeks or so. 
 
      Forgive me if this particular review portion is a bit on the short side, but I’ll get right to it! My little S’mores variant has some very subtle tones. Despite the majority being spiced, the drink comes across as creamy and soft. Toasted Marshmallow was a good choice for this instant fall favorite.
 
     The predominant flavor is the marshmallow with the maple as a quiet undertone. Which is a shame, because evidently I really dig maple flavoring. I had a fantastic maple milkshake with espresso in it from Macon and I think I’m hunting for something like that close to home. Sadly, I didn’t have the blog quite yet so no write up exists on that- but one day (hopefully soon!). The brown sugar is a very mellow flavor that adds some nostalgia somehow. It reminds me of the smell of the family home while the food was being prepped and everyone was starving. 
 
     Honestly, this was going to be featured on my list coming up in a few weeks. But I think they have something planned, so I would hate to feature something and then have it be completely overshadowed. If you’re local, I definitely suggest keeping an eye out for any Halloween themed goodies from the good folks over at Origin Coffee!
 

Taste; /5

I would love to give this a 5/5, but I was a tiny bit bummed about the maple not making more of an appearance. It’s a phenomenal drink that is perfect for the fall and I feel like the hot variant would be fantastic for the winter. I’m thinking a liquid version of roasting marshmallows at the fireplace. It’s definitely one I’m going to have get again (and again!).
 

Updates

     These next couple of months are going to be pretty eventful here at JnJ, I have a lot of good stuff planned (some more pricey than others). We have some fresh beauty content coming, some What’s New(s) and I’m thinking of slightly deviating from our regular content for the month of October and then really crank it up for the week before Halloween.
