OK everyone, take a deep breath in, smell that spice, and let it out. Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte now actually contains real pumpkin.
"Put a little cinnamon in there. Put a little nutmeg in too. It's a pumpkiny swirl onto a beautiful, beautiful beverage. ... We said, 'Hey pumpkin, meet spice, you two are gonna be best friends.'" (Video via Starbucks)
While many of us may have thought we were drinking some pumpkin before, there actually has never been any of the squash in the company's Pumpkin Spice Latte since it became a seasonal menu staple in 2003.
