7-Eleven, Irving, Texas, has relaunched its Pumpkin Spice Latte and fresh-brewed pumpkin-flavored coffee at participating locations nationwide.

The annual special is the convenience-store retailer's most successful limited-time offering (LTO) in the hot beverage category, the company said.
7-Eleven’s Pumpkin Spice Latte blends autumn spices such as cinnamon, ginger, anise and clove with creamy pumpkin flavoring.

Pilot Flying J, Knoxville, Tenn., has debuted two new limited-time coffee offerings, Pumpkin Maple Cappuccino and Cinnamon Spice Cold Brew, in select locations. The Pumpkin Maple Cappuccino is available in more than 550 stores for $1.59, while the Cinnamon Spice Cold Brew is available in more than 450 stores for $2.19. The cold brew is brewed longer for a sweeter, rich taste that lacks the bitterness of traditional coffee, the company said. Both offerings will be available until supplies last. Pilot Flying J will also restock its popular pumpkin pie creamer and syrup as part of the fall promotion.
