Pumpkin spice has enduring cool-weather appeal
Spurred by Starbuck’s now infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte (which, as it happens, has its own Twitter handle with 114,000 followers), both natural and conventional food and beverage companies have embraced the warm, cozy flavors of fall.
Why the continued zeal—year after year—for pumpkin spice? Nostalgia certainly plays a part—the flavor conjures cozy memories of snuggly scarves, Pinterest-perfect autumnal strolls and holiday family gatherings. Pumpkin spice is, after all, modeled after the cinnamon-clove-ginger-nutmeg flavors of pumpkin pie, a staple food in households across the nation during Thanksgiving.
But pumpkin spice latte for your pup? Yes, really. Here’s the newest class of PSL-flavored natural food and beverages that you can pick up at the grocery store soon.
