It is September and you know what this means: the Pumpkin Spice Latte is again in every Starbucks. With a combination of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin, this latte has become one of the most popular in the world. Millions of people bought this season beverage since it has been sold, 13 years ago.
If you did not know by now, the Pumpkin Spice Latte has its own official Twitter account. Starbucks wanted to advertise this beverage as much as possible. They earned around 100 million dollars only from this drink, last fall. Most people from the United States are obsessed with the pumpkin flavor. However, you should know that most of the times, it is only a polarizing one. This happens because it is cheaper for the company than to use actual pumpkins. Starbucks is the only brand who does that. For example, you can find pumpkin pie flavored vodka from Pinnacle
One of the reasons why the Pumpkin Spice Latte is so popular is that is a limited-time offer. You are able to buy it only during autumn months, which makes it more interesting. According to a study, most people buy just one latte in every season. This does not seem to be a problem for Starbucks, as it makes a lot of money from this beverage.
Drinking just one Pumpkin Spice Latte every season is not such a bad idea for your health. Doctors are advising people who suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease or are overweight to pay more attention to what they drink. This beverage has 50 grams of sugar which give you a similar effect as drugs.
A few minutes after you drink it, the endorphins come and after 15 minutes the sugar will be in your body. Doctors are saying that consuming this latte more times in a season can be really harmful to our weight.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte can be bought from every Starbucks store, no matter where you are. The company seems to know how to take advantage of their most popular drink. Americans love this flavor, so it is not a surprise that are so many people who can’t wait for the autumn to drink their favorite beverage. The latte has been in stores from September 1st and people will be able to buy it during the fall season.
