Pumpkin Spice is everything nice at Starbucks. This fall drink is definitely a fan favorite for most Starbucks customers who wait patiently every year ‘til fall comes around. The Pumpkin Spice Latte was first released on September 2nd, 2014, stated by Business Insider. Since then, this drink has become a staple for Starbucks and is now part of the fall celebration.

“This drink definitely makes me feel like I’m in autumn,” stated Suu Nemyo, a BPHS senior.

Pumpkin by itself is already a fall staple. This bright orange fruit not only makes a really good pie, but also a delicious beverage. Fall is known for its cool breezy weather accompanied by a nice warm drink in hand. The warm tones as the leaves begin to change are a signal that Halloween is creeping up and Thanksgiving is coming around the corner. Not only does the sight of maple leaves give off a warm feeling, but so does the taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. These three flavors come together to accompany the flavor of pumpkin, fusing to create the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte.

“I already love coffee as it is, so drinking Pumpkin Spice really does the job of giving me a caffeinated boost while giving me fall vibes,” Kayla Do, BPHS senior.

This drink is not for people with sensitive tastebuds; it really packs a punch. All of these strong flavors can wake up your palate. Based on the Starbucks website, this drink consists of sugar, condensed skim milk, and pumpkin puree. On the nutritional facts, this fall flavored drink contains about 48 grams of sugar for a grande sized drink, nearly fifty percent more sugar than one is supposed to consume in one day. This drink will definitely make you look like a pumpkin before you even finish it.
