Real Pumpkin To Be Used In Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Summer is winding down and fall is right around the corner. You know what that means, time to gear up for the first holiday of the fall season, Halloween. Starbucks is doing just that with their Pumpkin Spice Latte that they've had available for the past few years. However, this year, they're doing something new.
For years, the Pumpkin Spice Latte has been made with ingredients like: caramel, milk, 50 grams of sugar, natural and artificial flavors, and pesticide residue. What you don't notice in that list is pumpkin.
Well the reported inventor of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Peter Dukes, wrote a blog post to discuss what will be different about the latte this year saying, "After hearing from customers and partners about ingredients, we took another look at this beverage and why we created it so many years ago. It was simple - espresso, perfectly steamed milk, warm fall spices with delicious flavor of pumpkin pie that reminds you of the cool, crisp days of autumn. So, with that great taste you know and love, the PSL returns this fall, and this time it will be made with real pumpkin and without caramel coloring."
Will this help or hurt the fall drink? Well that will be up to you to decide when it hits the Starbucks stores.
