Your Favorite Fall Drink

The leaves are turning colors on the maple trees, some falling slowly to the ground. The cool, brisk air flowing through campus. Jackets, pants, boots, and hats are coming out of hiding since early spring. Fall is upon us. With that being said, we need some things to fuel our passion for fall.

Some go to farms to pick out pumpkins, some go to haunted houses, but everyone loves to grab their favorite fall beverage that smells inviting and tastes delightful.

We decided to go to the delicious Maple Street Commons to poll votes asking everyone’s ideal fall drink. Who knew this question would be so hard to decide? Students found it difficult to pick from our options; PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte), Chai Tea, Hot Chocolate, Maple Pecan Latte, Hot Tea, and Salted Caramel. We provided an option to write their favorite drink if it was not one of our options and let me tell you, there were some surprising results.

Who thought the most “famous” drink, the PSL, would be the top? We certainly did! But no, we had three others in the lead ahead of the PSL. Here’s the list all of you have been waiting for:

1st place: Hot Chocolate (23.9%)

2nd place: Chai Tea (22.4%)

3rd place: Salted Caramel (19.4%)

Honorary Members: PSL (17.9%)

                Maple Pecan (4.5%)

                Tea (3%)

                Other drinks (8.9%)

This was a close race all around, but it looks like hot chocolate is our big winner! Hot chocolate is a heart warming drink not just for fall, but for winter too! What’s even better is that we have all of these options throughout our campus. From King Cafe, to the Starbucks on Maplestreet, we can satisfy all of your beloved fall drinks that will prepare your heart for the wonderful season ahead.

The Toasted Roll…Bagel?

Tradition has played a role in the hearts of Miami students ever since Miami was founded. Miami mergers, kissing under the Upham Arch, petting the turtle’s head at the sundial, the seal, and plenty more. But one of the best traditions for food includes the beloved Toasted Roll at Pulley Diner in Armstrong.

The tasty Tuffy’s Toasted Roll was named after Myrion Timothy “Tuffy” Potter, who opened an eatery called Tuffy’s Place in 1929. The warm, powdered-sugared rolls were a popular item on the menu back then and they continued when Miami brought it for all students to enjoy.

Now there is a new toasted roll in town. Just in the center of the main court in Armstrong is an a la carte location now called the Toasted Bagel. Not only do they have Toasted Bagels, which are phenomenal, but they made the bagel of all toasted bagels. In their dessert menu is a bagel of your choice, but Toasted Roll style.

This bagel includes your choice of bagel toasted with butter, cinnamon, and sugar then sprinkled with powdered sugar—Tuffy’s Toasted Roll style. Not only do they make it Toasted Roll style, but you get to choose which bagel you prefer to entice your taste buds. It’s a win-win . This savory, delicious, and satisfying bagel is new to the menu and is already one of the most popular food items.

The tradition of the Toasted Roll lives on in the new Toasted Bagel dining menu with a big twist to the original. If you’re looking for a sweet treat while also wanting to satisfy your hunger, buy one today! Or two. Or three and save one for later. Either way, you just cannot get enough.
