The Return Of Pumpkin Spice


In a few days, you’re about to be surrounded by pumpkin spice flavors again. Pumpkin spice lattes, PS deodorant, PS muffins, PS candles, PS doughnuts, PS PS PS….   For some, this is a heavenly time but for others, it’s a return of a hated scent.  Is pumpkin spice still holding onto all of its hype in 2022? There is no in between you either love it, or you hate it. I interviewed some of lake mary’s coffee addicts and got their hot take on the return of pumpkin spice at Starbucks, and all over the world.

“Are pumpkin spiced lattes overhyped?”

Lilly Durden “I mean a little bit I do love it but I dont order it everytime I go to starbucks in the fall.”

Kat Bessette “Personally I hate it, it just doesnt taste good at all but I am also someone who has never liked anything pumpkin.”

Sawyer Snedeker “I love it so much its not overhyped at all, I could drink it everyday for the rest of my life and never get sick of it.”

“Is taking different food and turning them into a pumpkin spice flavor taking it too far?”

Lilly Durden “It just depends on the food, sometimes it could be good, sometimes it could be absolutely terrible.”

Kat Bessette “Yes 100% its so gross stop taking food and turning it into something just gross.”

Sawyer Snedeker “Nope its amazing pumpkin spice is my favorite thing ever and now that its in season I can drink it everyday and even have it in some of my favorite foods.”
