Around this time last year, I had a revelation. A Pumpkin Spice revelation. My love of all things pumpkin-flavored has returned. And this time, I’m coming at you with another game-changer: Pumpkin Spice coffee.
So. Simple. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? The genius behind the concoction is my work wife. Nothing has been the same since. Note: don’t be alarmed by the orange color. Pumpkins are orange and they’re not scary.
The Starbucks app drink customizer is my favorite way to control my coffee cals. You don’t often realize how your favorite drink could betray you like that. If you’ll remember from last time, a tall Pumpkin Spice Latte without any modification can rack up to 300 calories. The Grande 2-Pump Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee you see here is a measly 5 calories. F-i-v-e.
Alls I did was add two packets of Splenda and I was out the door. Absentmindedly, the barista didn’t leave me any room for milk as I requested, but I came to find it didn’t matter. It tastes just as delicious as I would expect it to be. Not only are the calories swoon-inducing, the price is in the neighborhood of $2. Come on, that deserves a parade. Don’t want ice? Try a regular coffee and see what happens. Go crazy!
Then go boot up your Anthropologie On Rotation Spotify channel, dial it to the Turkey to Table: A Thanksgiving Playlist, and be thankful for the welcomed turn to cooler weather. It’s fall, y’all!
