When you smell the Maple Pecan Latte it gives off an insanely sweet aroma but once you taste it, it's the ideal balance of sweet maple and espresso.

Maple is the new pumpkin: Other places like Donkin Donuts have also debuted maple-flavored Fall drinks.

Could a new seasonal drink at Starbucks replace the Pumpkin Spice Latte in the hearts of fall lovers everywhere? Word on the street is positive, declaring it to be less cloyingly sweet than its pumpkin-spiced friend, with the pecans giving it a nutty smokiness.

The MPL, as well as Starbucks' other fall drinks, will be served Fall-themed cups, which come in blue, purple, and orange tones and have sketches like pumpkins, owls, and pie on them, or white circles that customers can fill out. The rich and fudgy blended beverage, combines extra dark cocoa, coffee, milk and ice blended together and topped with whipped cream.

The fall cups look pretty similar to the chain's spring cups, but with warmer, more autumnal colors compared to the March cups' springy pastels.

McDonald's is also getting in on the trend, offering a Maple Caramel Latte in Canada, and the smallest version, with 2 per cent milk, has 210 calories, and 30g of sugar. Now if that doesn't make you want to try the new Maple Pecan Latte, then we don't know what will.

One writer went so far as to say the MPL gets a big thumb's up and is the grown-up fall drink many of us have been waiting for.
