MAPLE GIN­GER NOOSA MATES

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - TRENDING - Fol­low USA TO­DAY re­porter Zlati Meyer on Twit­ter: @ZlatiMeyer

Chobani helped usher in the era of Greek yo­gurt, so you can bet it’s go­ing to be on trend when it comes to pop­u­lar fall tastes. The maple fla­vor began ship­ping in Au­gust — be­fore La­bor Day? Gasp! — and is avail­able through the end of Oc­to­ber. Maple de­buted last year. Chobani made a pump­kin play in 2014 and 2015. Noth­ing screams “the weather is get­ting cooler” more than stock­ing up on carbs. So con­sider a bagel the per­fect way to get some maple in your diet. Ein­stein Bros. is sell­ing the dou­ble-whipped cream cheese called the Maple Sh­mear all 12 months of the year. The Aus­tralian yo­gurt brand Noosa of­fers up an au­tum­nal mix-in that comes with gra­nola, can­died gin­ger and gin­ger­snap crum­bles. “Flan­nel shirt sold sep­a­rately,” the com­pany jokes. The fla­vor was in­tro­duced in July but will be avail­able year-round.

DUNKIN’ DONUTS MAPLE PECAN ICED COF­FEE AND MORE

That other cof­fee gi­ant, Dunkin’ Donuts, isn’t go­ing to be left be­hind. The com­pany is go­ing full throt­tle on maple — not sur­pris­ing con­sid­er­ing the chain is head­quar­tered in New Eng­land, where peo­ple take maple very se­ri­ously. In ad­di­tion to the iced cof­fee, Dunkin’ Donuts is serv­ing up a Maple Sugar Ba­con Break­fast Sand­wich. The cof­fee is avail­able through mid-Novem­ber and the sand­wich un­til the end of the year.
