It's fall, and if you're anything like me, it means that the phrase "Can you get me coffee on the way back?" is getting uttered in your house a lot more. It's not coffee, though. Not JUST coffee. It's time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the McRib of overpriced caffeinated beverages. Starbucks's annual fall flavor sparks the sort of wild-eyed zeal usually seen only among Whovians and evangelicals with radio shows you can only seem to pick up while driving past cow pastures.
The PSL even made national news this year when the Food Babe claimed that it was basically 16 ounces of chemtrails and seemed confused over the difference between "pumpkin spice" and "pumpkin juice." Fans were appropriately whipped into a frothy frenzy to defend the drink, and somewhere along the line I'm sure the Food Babe got someone to spend $30 on 12 ounces of
magic beans chocolate.
People love the PSL, some so much so that simply drinking them is not enough. They need to celebrate with clothes and crafts, and thanks to Etsy, you can do just that.More »
