Oxford's Fall Flavors

It's fall, so bring on the pumpkin-flavored everything! Oh, and the apple-flavored everything too of course! Mix these two with some spices and some chocolate and you've got a warm spot in our hearts forever.

Oxford has a ton of places to explore for yummy fall flavors, from snacks like caramel apples to start-your-day-right coffee brews. For the age 21+ crowd, there are also pumpkin beers and ciders at several bars uptown.

Make your way through the list and get one of everything because why not? After the summer we've all had, we deserve to indulge.

This fall Church Street Social has several delicious selections of seasonal beer, ciders, and slushies. Pro tip: A big soft pretzels with beer cheese pairs great!

If you've taken a stroll through Butterfields Farm Market recently then you already know about their many fall flavors perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.

We're talking pumpkin cookies and brownies, maple drops, caramel apples, and apple cider slushies. Or you can get their regular non-slushy apple cider, but to that we say: why not both?

Once again, the Oxford Doughnut Shoppe has a glazed pumpkin spiced donut that is literally the best thing to start your day with. If pumpkin's not quite your thing, the Doughnut Shoppe also has a maple frosted donut which feels like a fall flavor but has the benefit of being available all year!

Pro-tip: It's an understatement to say that the Oxford Doughnut Shoppe is popular so get there early before their made-fresh-daily donuts are all gone.
