KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J is rolling out new fall flavors and welcoming back fan favorites for a limited time. 

This season the travel center network debuts a southern pecan cold brew with all-natural flavors and a touch of nutty sweetness. Joining the new offering are returning flavors, Cinnabon pumpkin spice cappuccino and bourbon pecan drip coffee.

"This fall, we are branching out and going beyond pumpkin with several autumn-inspired coffees to keep you going during your travels," said Jonathan Braatvedt, vice president of food and beverage for Pilot Flying J. "The bourbon pecan was a hit, and we are excited to bring it back along with the classics and some new flavors so there is something for everyone to enjoy." 

Additional fall offerings include a special edition, single origin, bean-to-cup coffee called Machu Picchu, Peru, and a pumpkin spice creamer to keep any cup perfectly pumpkin.
