**The Verdict:**  So delicious and sweet.... but you really don't want to know what's in them.

About Starbucks pumpkin muffin:  The Pumpkin cream cheese muffin is quite large.  It is kind of orangey in color like pumpkin pie and kind tastes like a combination of pumpkin pie and carrot cake.  I guess because the spices are similar.  The top is sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds (not in the shell obviously).  The inner core of the muffin is hollowed out and filled with sweet yummy cream cheese that tastes like buttercream and comes right out of the top of the muffin.

So from that description you can imagine how unhealthy and fattening this baby is.  Yep, it's pretty bad.  So bad that I won't even tell you what's in them.  Just enjoy in moderation and you'll be OK because if you think about the fat and calories you won't enjoy it and will have wasted two bucks.  Or you can share one with a friend as they are quite large.  

I used to think that the pumpkin cream cheese muffin went perfectly with Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte but after trying that combination yesterday for the first time in a long time, it's just too sweet.  It would be better with plain coffee, tea, or a big glass of cold milk.  They're available only during fall and winter so get them while they're in season.

Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins are the perfect treat to go alongside your morning latte or mocha.  I like the portion size of these muffins because they are a little pricey but have at least two servings, so they are great for splitting.  The flavors of these muffins remind me of fall with the spice of cinnamon and allspice, it is like a piece of pumpkin pie in each bite.  The creamy filling is very smooth and custardy and is a great sweet surprise in the middle.  It has a nice flaky top on the muffin and tastes great.  This is a great pairing with your coffee.

YUMMY! Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin

By 

from Hillsborough, NJ

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

This is a treat I look forward to every fall/winter! Moist, delicious indulgent. The pumpkin Cream Cheese Mix is just as good for breakfast as for a dessert or snack! The added pumpkin seeds on top just push this muffin over the edge of amazing! I enjoy baking and have searched and tried several recipes to try and get the wonderful flavor combinations down - but it's much easier to just pop-into Starbucks and order one. Starbucks over the years have had some hits and misses and they try to bring back popular items each season. This is one I hope they never take off the seasonal rotation. If I lived closer to Starbucks this would be a daily breakfast treat for me. With many stores like Panera, Boston Market, etc putting some of their more popular items in grocery stores - I could see these muffins being a top choice and I will welcome it!!

YUMMY!!

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

These are so high in calories, fat, sugar, and all the stuff a health nut like me tries to limit. but man this is good. I had a coupon for a free food item at starbucks so I decided to get this. It is so good!!! It has that yummy cinnamon, pumpkin flavor that you love in the fall time, and the cream cheese filling is so good. It goes great along side a pumpkin spice latte, or even a regular cup of coffee.

Delicious!

By

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

The Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin is sinfully delicious! My favorite part about it is the cream cheese filling. The whole muffin, taste-wise, reminds me of a pumpkin cheesecake! The cream cheese adds a rich, sweet, soft texture to the muffin. The crunch of the oats and seeds on the outside makes it magnificent. It goes perfect with a Starbucks coffee! I gave it an 8/10 because Starbucks is so expensive.

Good for the season and with your coffee

By 

from USA

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

Tastes is satisfying with your coffee, taste of pumpkin cheesecake is minimal but satisfying. good for the season and while out shopping, satisfies the sweet tooth. Smell is enticing and it is worth trying. A little on the overpriced side but it is worth trying if you like pumpkin nod cheesecake combo. Melts in your mouth smoothly.

Expensive but delicious

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

This muffin from Starbucks is one of my all time favorites. The combination of pumpkin and cream cheese frosting is fantastic. I wish they sold this muffin all year long. The only complaint for this product is the price, however to indulge is a sweet treat that's high in quality you can't hi wrong.

oh yum, it's back!

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

The pumpkin cream cheese muffin is better than the pumpkin spice latte! I know alot of people would disagree with me, but this yummy, spicy, earthy bread, topped with cream cheese, and pumpkin seeds, is just the thing to start OR end the day. Warm it in the microwave for 15 seconds and it's like fresh out of the oven. It's big enough to share with a friend, but it's got to be a really good friend!

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

These HUGE muffins are oh so good...just not very good FOR you! But, if you're willing to splurge on your daily calorie intake, this is a delightful choice! They are perfect for the holidays and would make a wonderful housewarming or holiday party gift. I guarantee everyone will want to devour every scrumptious morsel!!

Yummy but would be better without Cream Cheese

By 

from Arlington, VA

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

I love love love Pumpkin everything, this pumpkin muffin is beyond yummy BUT I am not a big fan of the cream cheese center it puts the muffin a little bit over the top.  However this is a great seasonal favorite for any pumpkin fan.  Its a great match with the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte.

Starbucks piles on more seasonal poundage

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin:

Starbucks is now using a new preservative which allows Starbucks retail outlets to now keep the pumpkin cream cheese muffins for 2 days (if they are not sold). Hmmm. When was the last time you were hunger for 2-day old pseudo cream cheese. This muffin for breakfast will fill your processed sugars and grains quota for the rest of the day. Sorry, that means no dessert this holiday.
