Has Pumpkin Spice been Replaced?
If you've walked out the door then without a doubt you have noticed that the cool weather is here to stay. At the first hint of Fall a few weeks ago many people couldn't wait to run to their favorite coffee shop to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is a coffee drink made with a mix of traditional fall spice flavors, steamed milk, espresso, and often sugar, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice.Starbucks averages over $100 Million in sales in just a few short months with the PSL. That's a lot of money to spend on a coffee drink and I could probably think of a few other things that I would rather do with it.
However could this trend be coming to a end?!?! We all know that social media can be a big influence of major trends. I've been watching Social Media the past couple weeks and I have noticed a Hashtag a lot! #MinterIsComing. With a little research Minter talks about all the Peppermint Flavored Coffee Drinks. It even goes as far as a peppermint scalp massage. That actually sounds kind of nice!
In my opinion a good ol cup of plain black coffee is the way to go. Although If I am going to step out on a limb and get a fancy drink its going to be A Egg Nog Latte! Never had one?! Trust me and get one. It's a life changer!
What do you think? Is this the end of Pumpkin Spice as we know it? Or will both drinks be able to take on the world together. Comment below and let us know. I am curious to know just how into PSL East Texas is!
