A slice of fried gold....

Well, actually I guess it's a cup of fried gold.

Pumpkin Spice cappuccino, baby. It rocks.

Yesterday Piccu and I headed over to Big Kev's last night and stopped by the local bodega.

I know what you are thinking, Po'dunk, Kentucky has a bodega? Not exactly, but it is a convenient store that has recognized that our growing hispanic community has no place to get authentic mexican convenient store items.

I know it sounds crazy but it's true. Among other things, it carries blackbeans, corn husks, dried peppers, mexican chocolate, jars of pretty solid tamales and fruit flavored drinks from Mexico with actual sugar in them. If we all stopped drinking soft drinks with high-fructose corn syrup and switched to those little beauties with sugar straight from the cane, it would probably kill us. This is also the only convenient store I know of that sells a pretty good portion of produce.

Anyway, yesterday Piccu and I stopped in for a frosty beverage and as I walked by the coffee/cappuccino area I noticed that the cappuccino machine offered pumpkin spice coffee.

I quickly made a mental note and got myself a cup this morning and it is awesome. I got a 12-14 ounce cup and threw in three little half-n-halfs and as Shaun would say from Shaun of the Dead...

It's a slice of fried gold. Or more like a drinking a slice of golden fried pumpkin pie. It's gold Jerry, gold.

Pumpkin Spice coffee is for pansies. Chai Lattes baby. That's a man's drink. (tongue in cheek)

Keep in mind that here in Po'dunk we have to drive 40 minutes for a good cup of coffee.

I don't drink that freeze dried crap, I get my coffee on the outside. And believe it or not, it has taken a while for the local convenient stores to get some even drinkable coffee around here.
