Do You Love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes?! You Might Not Once We Tell You What’s In Them! Get The Shocking List Of Ingredients HERE!

Fall is officially less than a month away!

Which means it’s time for pumpkin flavored everything: Pumpkin beer! Pumpkin bread! Pumpkin flavored condoms!

That’s gotta be a thing, right?

And of course autumn also means the smooth, sweet taste of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte is back! But hold on, Perezcious pumpkinphiles. Because you might not want to sip this seasonal treat once we tell you what it’s made of!

Here’s the first bit of bad news: pumpkin is NOT on the ingredients list at all!

Um… exsqueeze us?!?

Pumpkin is the first word in the name of the beverage! That’d be like serving apple pie and not putting any friggin' apples in!

It gets worse though…

Starbucks also includes Caramel Color Level IV in their Pumpkin Spice lattes, which is a made with ammonia and is considered a dangerous carcinogen.

We’ll let that sink in with you for a second.

It gets worse though…

The national chain also uses Monsanto milk which feeds genetically modified corn, soy and cottonseed to their cows.

It gets worse though…

Order up a Grande and you’ll be ordering over 50 grams of sugar! And not even good sugar - Pumpkin Spice lattes are made with corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. And lots of it!

Starbucks isn’t so quick to offer up the ingredients list for their products but one savvy food blogger dug deep and uncovered all this nastiness. Just some food for thought for the next time you’re in line for a coffee this fall!

Drink with caution, people!

    Fuck Starbucks. They're worse than McDonalds when it comes to crap. Nobody talks about it because they don't understand that drinking something is the same as fucking eating it. Oh, and fuck you, too, Perez. Just because.

    That is because it's not a Pumpkin Latte, it's a Pumpkin Spice latte, containing the same spices that are used to give pumpkin pie it's flavor. Pumpkins are just a squash and doesn't even taste like things that are "pumpkin flavored".

    Looks like someone needs to do their research before putting out false information.

    This isn't true. I worked for a Starbuck's and we used local milk.
