.A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte, not actually having any pumpkin in it. Read that blog here. Today, I’m going to Dissect the Ingredients of that “Pumpkin Spiced Latte” for you. I bet you will think twice about paying just over $3 for a measly tall “PSL” drink this season… Caution: The rest of this post might make you want to stop drinking Starbucks immediately:
First of all, the “Pumpkin Spiced Latte” Can not be made into a Vegan drink, since the “pumpkin” sauce has Condensed Milk in it! I bet that teenage Barista did not tell you that when you tried to order a “soy pumpkin latte”.
The amount of Sugar in a Grande size (the typical size most people order) has OVER 50 grams of Sugar in one cup!! Way too sweet!!
Even though they say “Natural Flavors”, this can come from ANYTHING ,and they do not have to disclose it. We have no Idea what “Natural Flavors” is. (Just a word of advice, this goes for EVERYTHING that has the words “Natural Flavors” on the label. Of course “artificial flavors” is pure crap, it COULD mean chemicals!! We do not know for sure, but we also do not know for sure it DOES NOT contain chemicals!!! Its best to avoid things with “artificial flavors”
The name of this “drink” really needs to change from “pumpkin” spiced Latte, how about “Fall spiced Latte” or “Way too much sugar and chemicals Latte” .
Are you a Starbucks drinker? Have you had the “pumpkin Spiced latte”?
Will you still drink it after seeing this?
For some real Pumpkin treats this Fall season, try a Homemade Pumpkin pie or the “Real Pumpkin Latte” in my blog post that I shared with you! 🙂
Happy Fall everyone!! 😉
What’s your drink of choice?
