Pumpkin everything is back and I'm here for it. 

I'm not picky either - hot or iced, blended or straight up, every pumpkin drink on the Dutch Bros menu is a seasonal treat. 

Oh, and I can confirm the rumor: Dutch Bros has added sugar-free pumpkin in 2023! Now there is something for everyone on this pumpkin-loving list. 

The season is short and there are only 5 official Dutch Bros pumpkin drinks on the menu, but I've made a round-up that adds some of my favorite customizations and secret menu items as well. 

1. Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cold Brew

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cold Brew Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' signature cold brew
  • salted caramel sauce
  • Dutch Bros' Signature soft top
  • pumpkin drizzle
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

I don't usually like to start my lists with secret menu items, but to me the Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cold Brew is the king of fall pumpkin drinks. 

Is it sweet? Yes. Is it salty? Yes! It's everything I've ever wanted in a cold brew. 

This delicious beverage is made with Dutch Bros' signature cold brew and topped with a pumpkin drizzle, salted caramel sauce, a soft top, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Sometimes when I want a bit more of a kick, I replace the regular brew with the nitro version. I recommend this drink to those who love pumpkin and want to try something new and different.

How To Order The Secret Menu Salted Caramel Cold Brew
  • Ask for the Pumpkin Pie Cold Brew with Salted Caramel Sauce.
  • For even more flavor, replace the Soft Top with Pumpkin Pie Soft Top!

2. Pumpkin Pie Cold Brew With Pumpkin Pie Soft Top

Pumpkin Pie Cold Brew With Pumpkin Pie Soft Top Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' Signature Cold Brew
  • Pumpkin Flavoring
  • Dutch Bros' Pumpkin Flavored Soft Top

This official menu cold brew treat has a really long name, but it's actually a pretty basic fall drink. On those mornings when I just can't decide what to order, I find myself turning to the Pumpkin Pie Cold Brew. 

It's my favorite signature cold brew with just enough pumpkin flavoring to keep my autumn vibes going.

While the regular Soft Top is a delicious addition as-is, I was thrilled when Dutch Bros released their seasonal Pumpkin Pie Soft Top, which truly takes this cold brew drink to another level. 

3. Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve

Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' signature cold brew
  • half-and-half
  • salted caramel sauce
  • Dutch Bros' Signature Soft Top
  • pumpkin drizzle
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

For caramel lovers like my husband, this is the ultimate Dutch Bros fall drink

This delicious and creamy drink is the perfect way to indulge in all the flavors of the season. And while it may be a mouthful to say Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve, once you get the hang of it, it'll just roll off your tongue. 

Made with Dutch Bros' signature cold brew and half-and-half, this drink features a delicious pumpkin drizzle, salted caramel sauce, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

I love that Dutch Bros allows you to order their cold brew concoctions HOT when the mood is right. This one is also delicious as a Freeze, so it might be a game-time decision. 

Barista HQ Pro Tip: This drink can also be ordered as a chai tea instead of cold brew. Simply ask for a Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Chai and let the barista know if you'd like it hot or cold.

4. Pumpkin Chai

Dutch Bros Iced Pumpkin Chai
Pumpkin Chai Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' signature chai
  • pumpkin sauce
  • whipped cream
  • dash of cinnamon

Dutch Bros' Pumpkin Chai is a pretty straightforward twist on the classic chai. It's not technically on the official menu, but it's not complicated either. 

The pumpkin sauce adds a warm and cozy flavor to the classic chai, which is why it is the perfect drink to enjoy on a chilly fall day.

Lately, it's become my errand-running treat to myself, as even though it's kind of basic, it tastes truly decadent.

When I want to be more caffeinated, I ask to add espresso shots or Dutch Bros white coffee to make it a "Dirty Pumpkin Chai." This makes it very similar to the Sweater Weather Chai, except with pumpkin instead of white chocolate. 

How To Order The Secret Menu Pumpkin Chai
  • Ask for an iced chai with pumpkin sauce, topped with whipped cream and cinnamon.

5. Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Frost

Dutch Bros Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Frost
Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Frost Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' Signature Chai
  • pumpkin sauce
  • Cinnamon + Macadamia Nut Syrups
  • White Chocolate Sauce
  • Whipped Cream

The Pumpkin Snickerdoodle is what I always recommend as a must-try fall drink from the secret menu at Dutch Bros.

This tasty concoction, which became popular on TikTok, is a delicious blend of chai and pumpkin sauce in Dutch Bros Classic Snickerdoodle Frost.

I like this one because the pumpkin flavor is subtle and allows the spices to shine through. 

It's super easy to order, too, as the Snickerdoodle combo of flavors (cinnamon, macadamia nut and white chocolate) is already one that all Dutch Bros Bro-istas are familiar with. 

How To Order The Secret Menu Snickerdoodle Frost
  • Ask for a Snickerdoodle Frost with chai tea and pumpkin sauce added. 

6. White Mocha Pumpkin Freeze

Dutch Bros White Mocha Pumpkin Freeze
White Mocha Pumpkin Freeze Standard Ingredients
  • iced coffee
  • white mocha sauce
  • pumpkin sauce
  • Dutch Bros' signature soft top
  • pumpkin drizzle

The Pumpkin Freeze is a special treat from Dutch Bros that makes me feel warm and cozy, even though it's an iced-blended drink. When autumn is here but it's still 85F, this is the drink I turn to when I'm manifesting cooler weather.

The Pumpkin Freeze is a blend of iced coffee, pumpkin sauce, and white mocha sauce, topped with Dutch Bros' signature soft top and pumpkin drizzle.

The combination of pumpkin and white mocha flavors gives a delicious twist to the classic pumpkin spice latte, and the soft top and pumpkin drizzle adds an extra layer of flavor and texture.

I did try this one with the Pumpkin Pie Soft Top recently, but for this drink I think it was just too much. I'll stick with the Signature Soft Top. 

How To Order The Secret Menu White Mocha Pumpkin Freeze
  • Ask for a White Mocha Freeze with pumpkin sauce. 
  • Add a Soft Top and pumpkin drizzle. 

7. Pumpkin Pie Frost

Dutch Bros Pumpkin Pie Frost
Pumpkin Pie Frost Standard Ingredients
  • ice cream Base
  • white mocha sauce
  • pumpkin sauce
  • Whipped Cream

The Pumpkin Pie Frost is the ultimate treat for pumpkin lovers who want to enjoy the taste of fall without the buzz of caffeine, and one my kids just love!

It's similar to Starbucks' Pumpkin Cream Frappuccino in that it's basically a milkshake with pumpkin flavoring.

I appreciate that this non-caffeinated Dutch Bros drink is the perfect choice for an after school treat. It is quite filling though, so I always give my kids a banana to go along with it, and try not to be bummed when they aren't hungry for dinner. 

8. Zero Sugar Added Pumpkin Pie Latte

Dutch Bros Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Latte with Soft Top
Zero Sugar Added Pumpkin Pie Latte Standard Ingredients
  • Dutch Bros' Signature Bold Espresso
  • Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup
  • 2% Milk

Dutch Bros has had their Pumpkin Pie Latte on the menu for quite some time now, but 2023 is the first year that it's available sugar-free, so I wanted to make sure to highlight this version. 

Because as those bowls of Halloween candy come out on my coworkers desks, I definitely find myself trying to cut sugar in other places.

The Pumpkin Pie Latte is made of three simple ingredients: espresso, sugar-free pumpkin pie syrup, and 2% milk. I love that I can order it either hot or iced, and that a small iced pumpkin pie latte is only 100 calories!

For a creamier version of this drink, I sometimes ask for whole milk instead of 2%. 

Barista HQ Pro Tip: The sugar-free pumpkin syrup can be substituted in any of the Dutch Bros drinks. However, many of the other ingredients also contain sugar, so ask your Bro-ista for options on each addition.

When Does The Dutch Bros Menu Get Pumpkin Drinks Each Year?

Dutch Bros offers their pumpkin drinks each year beginning on September 1st.[1]

The season end date will vary depending on location and availability of ingredients, but typically runs through Halloween. 

I think Dutch Bros pumpkin drinks are a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of fall and to get into the spirit of the season!

I recommend visiting early and often throughout the seasons for the best chance to try all the options!

Pumpkin Drinks From Dutch Bros Vs Starbucks

Dutch Bros and Starbucks both offer pumpkin-flavored drinks during the fall season, but each chain has its own unique take on the popular seasonal flavor.

Compared to Starbucks, which leans toward a more pumpkin taste, Dutch Bros focuses on a creamier and more soothing drink.

Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve Vs Pumpkin Spice Latte

The Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve from Dutch Bros and the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks are both delicious pumpkin-flavored drinks that are perfect for the fall season.

While the Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve from Dutch Bros is a creamy, velvety drink that gives you a taste of pumpkin and caramel in every sip, the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks is known for its bold pumpkin flavor and the use of real pumpkin purée.

Both are unique in their own way, so it really comes down to your personal preference. I find Dutch Bros pumpkin drinks to be sweeter and more decadent than those of Starbucks.

Pumpkin Cold Brew Vs Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

The Pumpkin Cold Brew from Dutch Bros has a nice balance of pumpkin and coffee, and comes with a Soft Top, while the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks has a creamy pumpkin cream on top and a subtle pumpkin flavor throughout the drink.

I think both drinks are perfect for the fall season and are great options for those who prefer a cold pumpkin drink. 

If I had to make a game-time decision between the two, I would pick Dutch Bros version because it's lower in calories. The large pumpkin cold brew has 230 calories, while Starbucks' version is 310 calories [2].

How To Make Dutch Bros Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Breve At Home! (Copycat Recipe)

  • Cold Brew Coffee 
  • Half & Half 
  • Torani PureMade Pumpkin Pie Sauce 
  • Torani Caramel Sauce
  • Whipped Cream 

There are some recipes that are so good that I just have to try and duplicate them at home, and the Dutch Bros Caramel Pumpkin Brulée definitely falls into that category.

  1. To recreate this featured Dutch Bros drink at home, simply add your favorite cold brew and half & half to a tall glass. 
  2. Then add in pumpkin pie sauce and caramel sauce to taste. I like using the Torani brand sauces, and usually mix in a tablespoon of each using an immersion blender.
  3. Finally, top with whipped cream and drizzle on some more caramel sauce. That's it!

I recently made this one for brunch guests and they couldn't believe how good it was. It's so easy to make, too!
