When it comes to fall flavors, there’s no doubt about it — pumpkin spice is the clear favorite. From coffee to snacks and desserts, pumpkin seems to show up in everything this time of year.
There is another fall flavor, however, that may sometimes get overlooked in the rush to get our hands on all the pumpkin things: apple! From cider to pies, apples are my personal fall choice and I start craving cider long before pumpkin spice lattes.
And now, there’s a new way to enjoy apples — and this one is just for adults. New limited-edition Baileys Apple Pie is arriving just in time for fall weather. Served over ice, in chai tea or on ice cream, it has the taste of freshly baked apple pie à la mode blended with Irish dairy cream.
The new drink is available nationwide while supplies last, wherever spirits-based beverages are sold. It costs around $24.99 for a 750-ml bottle. You can also order it online as part of a Baileys Apple Pie Friendsgiving Kit from Cocktail Courier. The kit costs $84.99 and comes with everything you need to make 12 “Apple of My Chai” cocktails. The kit also includes a pack of Baileys apple pie cookies and other goodies, like a Baileys’ apron.
Of course, if you really want to bring on the fall vibes, you’ll also need some apple-flavored treats to enjoy alongside your cocktail.
If you’re looking for an easy snack, Sam’s Club has a new apple pie trail mix that not only has dried cinnamon apples and roasted almonds, but also walnuts, pie crust cookies and cream cheese-flavored pretzel clusters.
For dessert, Hershey’s now makes an apple pie Kit Kat, Yoplait has a new Oui apple pie French-style yogurt and Pillsbury has new salted caramel apple cookie dough (which you can also eat raw!). If you’d like to try the Baileys Apple Pie over ice cream in an adult-only float, you could pair it with a flavor like Talenti’s caramel apple pie gelato to really go all out.
