Pumpkin spice, which these days is in everything from lip balm to peanut butter and Febreze air freshener, is getting some competition from Maple lovers.  Maple is the new pumpkin spice.

For example:  Starbucks Maple Pecan Latte.  This drink is made with espresso and steamed milk with notes of maple syrup and pecan.

How about Dunkin' Donuts Maple Pecan Iced Coffee and more.  In addition to the iced coffee, Dunkin Donuts is serving up a Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast sandwich.

What about Kettle Brand Maple Bacon Potato Chips.  This snack food blends the smokiness of bacon, the sweetness of maple syrup and a punch of chili pepper.  Here's more from USA Today.
