Pumpkin Spice Is Out Of Control

It’s fall, so there have been more than a few pumpkin spice monsters that have been born.

I myself am guilty of falling victim to the trend. As much as I have turned my nose up at the myriad of pumpkin spice foods that have come out of the woodworks in the last couple of weeks, I did cave and try my very first Pumpkin Spice Latte just a few days ago.

I was in Starbucks, and I thought, “What the hell!” So I bought one to accompany the normal coffee drinks I’d also purchased. It was pretty disgusting, super sweet and not all that pumpkin-y. I really don’t understand what all of the fuss is about.

Now, it seems, the PSL is getting taken to a whole new level. In honor of the drink’s popularity (and, apparently its birthday?) Starbucks is now offering pumpkin spice whipped cream at no additional charge.

I can only imagine that it is as horrific as it sounds.
