For coffee lovers looking to unwind on a crisp fall afternoon, the pumpkin spice latte is the perfect drink choice. It warms you up, tastes amazing, and is super simple to make at home. Its unique taste pairs well many other snacks, including several complementary pumpkin-flavored treats. The next time you're sipping on a sweet seasonal latte alone or with friends, consider trying a few of these awesome snacks.

1. Apple Spice Granola
Granola is a great treat to take with you on the go, or it can be enjoyed as soon as it's out of the oven. Use your freshly picked apples and some nutritious chopped nuts to make this treat a protein packed refreshment. Try pouring your latte into the Mr. Coffee® Pour! Brew! Go! travel mug, zip the granola up in a bag and head out for a brisk walk through the changing leaves.

2. Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
You've already got pumpkin in your mug, so why not munch on some as well? Pumpkin seeds are full of nutrients such as dietary fiber, potassium, iron and magnesium. The best part of this snack is that it is totally customizable. You can go with the traditional oil-and-salt flavor or try a more unique seasoning, such as cayenne pepper, garlic or even steak seasoning.

If you're entertaining guests this season, almond brittle is an excellent dessert to have on a serving tray - just make sure to place it near your Mr. Coffee® Cafe Latte.

4. Leftover Halloween Candy

5. Caramel Apples
Sometimes you come back from the apple orchard with a few too many pieces of fruit. Even after a long day of baking, you might still have some leftovers. If you don't have time to make complicated apple desserts, consider the caramel apple. All you need is some dipping sauce, which you can either easily make at home or buy in the store. Simply wash the apples, spike them with skewers, and dip them in generous amounts of caramel.
