Starbucks announced the company is changing the Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe.
The change, however, is for the better. Last year a post about the actual flavoring of the fall latte went viral after it became apparent there was no actual pumpkin in the Pumpkin Spice latte.
In a statement, Starbucks said they heard your complaints and decided to revamp the drink.
“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.”
The Pumpkin portion of the latte’s ingredients now reads:
- Pumpkin Spice Flavored Sauce (Sugar, Condensed Skim Milk, Pumpkin Puree, Contains 2% or Less of Fruit and Vegetable Juice for Color, Natural Flavors, Annatto (Color), Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Salt)
After reading that post last year, I was ready to start making my own PSLs at home, but I guess now I don’t have to!
Now if only, it could just be Fall already!
