Now. I will go on the record and say I do visit Starbucks daily because they do make a mean lactose free Mocha.
But this is what the kids are talking about.
As we have learned countless times, everything that we ingest into our bodies is somehow bad for us, from Red Bull to Coke to beer to orange juice to even water so why should pumpkin spice latte (or as they say a PSL to be hip) be any different?
And since pumpkin spice latte is Starbucks’ most popular seasonal beverage someone out there, but what happens to your body when you slam down one of these tasty treats. Considering the drink contains 380 calories, 14 grams of fat and 50 grams of sugar, the prognosis isn’t great.
And no, as some of my coworkers here stated, (1) your soul does not immediately exit your body, (2) a pair of Ugg boots do not sprout on your feet, (3) You will not have to do that shame walk from Game Of Thrones (4) You will not automatically like Nickelback.
“There is an upside to drinking a PSL: It contains 14 grams of protein. That can help boost your muscles and leave you feeling fuller, longer,” according to New York City certified dietitian-nutritionist Jessica Cording.
So there you go, at least you have one reason to feel good about drinking your pumpkin spice latte.
