STARBUCKS’ Popular Pumpkin Latte To Contain Real Pumpkin This Season

GTY_pumpkin_spice_latteI’m not an orange juice drinker but I will admit, if it has pulp in it-I will consider it (as long as I have water on hand to dilute that sweet contraption). I absolutely hate orange juice but I do like some kinds of consistency in dome of my food and drinks like tapioca in pudding for example.

Well tis’ the season for the best in coffee and other seasonal delicacies and Starbucks promises something different in its popular pumpkin spice latte this season: real pumpkin.

That’s music to my foodie, visual, and coffee drinking senses as, the word “pumpkin” itself sounds edible to me-considering the fact that I love pumpkin anything (and can eat it straight out the can like I can eat salmon straight out the can as well).

Well for people like me, Starbucks is greeting yous this season with its beloved pumpkin spice coffee that promises real pumpkin “adip” or swimming like orange juice pulp [I’m guessing].

The coffee giant’s director of espresso, Americas, Peter Dukes, announced:

“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.”

Starbucks is joining other food giants like Panera and General Mills in removing artificial ingredients and coloring from their foods.

According to Duke, the ingredients for its most popular seasonal beverage of all time (for over 12 years now), will include sugar, condensed skim milk, pumpkin puree, Annatto seed coloring and the preservative potassium sorbate with the topping (atop the whip cream I’m guessing) will be made of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove.
