LITTLE TO NO PUMPKIN IN PUMPKIN SPICE TREATS!!!!

It’s officially fall, which means restaurants and grocery stores are stocked with pumpkin-flavored treats. You can celebrate the season with pumpkin spice coffee, cookies, ice cream, cakes, bagels, candy, donuts, beer and more. But you may be surprised- and perhaps disappointed- to learn that most of these treats have minimal actual pumpkin content…if any at all! A viral video making the rounds squashes the rumors and reveals the truth about what’s in your beloved seasonal products. Most items include no more that 2% pumpkin, and Starbucks’ famous Pumpkin Spice Latte, with its passionate cult following, has exactly zero pumpkin in its ingredients. Yep, zero. (Hey, cheer up. Eggnog/Gingerbread Latte season will be here before you know it!)
