Moda’s Guide to Celebrating the humble Pumpkin this Season


It’s October which means the leaves are turning brown, the temperature is dropping and pumpkin is the vegetable of the season. From a decoration around the house, a spooky illumination in the window, the star ingredient in a spiced latte or the go-to soup of the month, pumpkin is suddenly all around us.

With brands everywhere declaring their latest pumpkin-centred recipe, from the nation’s favourites to the wackiest new entries, we’ve rounded them up in a handy little guide to help you make the right pumpkin-themed decision.

Greggs’s Pumpkin Spice Latte

Taking on the giant that is Starbucks, Greggs has released its own pumpkin spice latte topped with cream and a shortbread crumb to make this sweet treat even sweeter! At £2.50, this is a low value way to get a quick pumpkin fix.


Aldi’s Pumpkin Spice Cream Liqueur

Renowned for bringing out products that rival big name brands, Aldi has once again brought out a liqueur to rival Baileys but with a pumpkin twist to mark the season. The new pumpkin spice cream liqueur is just £6.99 and is perfect for spicing up your hot chocolate or coffee and keeping you warm on the colder Autumn nights.


Starbucks’s Pumpkin Spice Latte

This is the October staple if ever there was one. Starbucks has ruled the pumpkin charts every year and this year the global coffeehouse chain has brought out a vegan-friendly version too, with dairy-free sauce and dairy-alternatives, including almond or oat – plus it’s served hot or iced so it can be enjoyed in any weather! Prices start from £3.15.
