Today the infamous Starbucks drink Pumpkin Spice Latte comes out. In the past, it has always come out in late September. I’m not surprised by this because I saw Halloween outfits in the stores back in July. Our world is changing and holidays are being celebrated earlier and earlier due to our lack of patience and stores capitalizing on early profits. Black Friday is now on Thursday. Christmas is being celebrated before Thanksgiving. Even though Fall is my favorite time of year, I personally want to enjoy my last month of summer before I settle into Autumn season (pus it’s still too hot!).
PSL has become so popular that it even has its own Twitter page. But what has been interesting this year is this posting below by the Food Babe. Starbucks has always been hesitant to post the ingredients to PSL because it has no actual real pumpkin in it. This will probably bode well for smaller independent coffee houses that use real ingredients in their pumpkin drinks if word continues to spread about this. I’m curious to how Starbucks responds to this. What do you think or do you care?
