Review: Pumpkin Spice Caramel Shake at Ghirardelli in Disney Springs

So recently we showed you a treat that looks very much like it would be loaded with all sortsa Pumpkin Spice flavor.

Only it’s not. The super cute Pumpkin Cupcake you’ll find at sweet spots such as the Main Street Confectionery, Big Top Treats, and Goofy’s Candy Co. is topped with a pumpkin-shaped dollop of orange frosting, but the flavor is pure vanilla. You can click here to check it out.

Today, though, we’re going in the opposite direction with a treat that doesn’t look remotely pumpkin-esque, but is positively PACKED with loads of autumnal spices for those of you who are ready to get your PUMPKIN ON this fall.

Allow me to introduce you to… the Pumpkin Spice Caramel Shake at Ghiraradelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop in Disney Springs!

(As you can tell, we have to get a little creative when it comes to celebrating autumn in these parts.)
