Pumpkin Spice LatteIt may not be September 22 just yet, but it already feels like fall. Mmmm, fall. A beautifully perfect mix of all things cozy. You know, big plush sweaters, soft scarves, structured boots, and oooh my favorite, delicious seasonable beverages.

Oh fall-themed drinks, I love and I hate you. I adore your often spicy flavor, but loathe your extra calories. I want to say heck: Pounds shmounds. It's the time of year to rock a big cozy sweater instead of a bikini, who cares!?

The truth though? I care. I don't want to, but I do. Not saying that what I'm about to tell you will stop you from ordering that large pumpkin spice latte. Every woman deserves to indulge every once in a while. But heck, it may make you think twice about ordering one every day of the week.

Take a looksee at 6 fast food drinks you should dive into this fall ... and their calorie amounts:

    Calories: Who cares?
    Total fat: Shhhhhhhhh.

    I. Can't. Even. Beer, in a milkshake? This is something all fans of fall beers should try. Who cares about nutritional information when you could be getting silly off of a deliciously frosty treat? OK, maybe that's excessive, but this one's on my list.

  • Dunkin' Donuts Medium Pumpkin Iced Coffee

    Calories: 260
    Total fat: 9 grams

    I know I know. You think, coffee has no calories -- this can't be that bad! Well beware of the creamy seasonal flavorings, my friends. I adore pumpkin iced coffee from Dunkin', but when paired with a little bit of cream -- the coffee cals can really add up. Stick to skim, and try asking for half of the amount of pumpkin pumps they usually add. Same great flavor, just a little less sweet.

  • Panera's Medium Chai Tea Latte

    Calories: 200
    Total fat: 4 grams

    Not too shabby, Panera. Pair this with one of those amazing scones in the display case, though, and you could be asking for trouble.

  • McDonald's Medium McCafe Hot Chocolate

    Calories: 380
    Total fat: 15 grams

    Is there ever a time that indulging in a warm hot chocolate isn't worth it? OK, maybe after you've had two others earlier in the day.

  • Starbucks Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte

    Calories: 410
    Fat: 17 grams

    Well hello there, favorite fall drink. It's nice to be hit straight across the face with your whopping calorie count. It's just so good though, there's nothing that would ever stop me. It's only an occasional indulgence, I swear.

  • Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale

    Calories: 199
    Total fat: 0 grams

    OK, so this isn't really a fast food item, but I had to include it! Plus, it looks like, calorie-wise, drinking beer may just be my safest calorie bet this fall. Is that a bad thing? I think not.
