Yes, we know. Someone already pointed that out.

Not sure I'd want to try a taco seasoning latte anyway.

I'm not a fan of Starbucks. There isn't much I like to drink there, with the exception of Pumpkin Spice Steamers (PSL minus the coffee) or Gingerbread Steamers (GBL minus the coffee) I'll grab a couple of these in the months September through December, and then they'll go away again and I won't step food into a Starbucks until the next year and they return. In fact if I can find the Pumpkin spice coffee creamer I wouldn't need Starbucks at all, but our grocery store doesn't care the holiday flavor coffee creamers. Ugh.

Pumpkin spice and the associated spice profile have been around for decades.

But apparently Starbuck's pumpkin spice latte now contains pumpkin puree. They started putting it in after all the "You know, pumpkin spice lattes don't even contain any pumpkin..."

I guess that's just one less thing we can make fun of women for.

Well hallelujah!

And for the record, I wasn't making fun of women in general. I was making fun of stupid women. For, you know, being stupid. Not for being women.

And why were they stupid? For calling a pumpkin spiced item, that contains pumpkin, a pumpkin item?

Sorry, I'm not seeing the stupidity. It seems like you just enjoy putting down woman. Which is weird, but unfortunately not uncommon in our society.

At the time, it did not contain any pumpkin, as evidenced by the links I provided upthread. They were saying they loved pumpkin flavored stuff, but there was no actual pumpkin flavor.



Why would I enjoy putting down women? I am a woman. If I had experienced men claiming the same love of pumpkin flavor when consuming stuff with no actual pumpkin flavor, I would have made fun of them too.

C'mon, people. Does anybody--male or female--really think there's pumpkin in those drinks? If they do, they've never had pumpkin. It's as close to flavorless as you can get.

That's why pumpkin needs spice. Pumpkin spice. That's what everybody means when they ask for [gasp!] a pumpkin latte instead of a pumpkin spice latte.

Yeesh.

I think that's a bit weird. It's not much, but why?
