It’s officially autumn, Broncos! I’ve got my favorite songs on Taylor Swift’s Folklore queued up and am ready for all things fall. Including some delicious fall snacks, five of which we have listed below.

1) Coffee, specifically pumpkin spice

It’s the time of year when pumpkin spice lattes are definitely socially acceptable. You can get your coffee fix in at many of our on-campus coffee shops like Starbucks, Guru Doughnuts, and Poppyseed café. Local grocery stores like Albertsons and Trader Joe’s also have some autumn roasts for you to home-brew.

2) Apple Crisp

An apple crisp bowl is sure to put you in that fall frame of mind. This quick and easy to make recipe is a healthy bite that may hold off your apple pie craving until Thanksgiving.

3) Pumpkin Snack Mix

This pumpkin snack mix recipe is a great treat to munch on while watching your favorite fall movie. Bonus: also very easy to make in a dorm room.

4) Caramel Corn

Who doesn’t love caramel corn? If you didn’t want to try this at-home recipe, as I’m sure that you can guess, our local grocery stores have some excellent pre-made options.

5) Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin bread is my go-to snack if I’m at any of Boise’s best coffee shops or bakeries. It’s a great companion to any caramel or pumpkin spice latte.
