What is pumpkin spice and the PSL?

If you haven’t gotten on the PSL bandwagon, you probably aren’t sure what all the fuss is about. Despite its name, pumpkin spice doesn’t actually contain pumpkin. Instead, it refers to the blend of spices traditionally used to flavor pumpkin pie and other pumpkin-based recipes. 

These spices include cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and allspice. You can buy a pumpkin spice blend, though, so you don’t have to do any mixing yourself. 

The Starbucks pumpkin spice latte has been a seasonal addition to the menu for 19 years. What is in pumpkin spice lattes? The beverage contains Starbucks’ signature espresso and milk steamed with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. It’s then topped with whipped cream and pumpkin spice. You can enjoy a hot, blender or iced pumpkin spice latte. If you're wondering how to make a pumpkin spiced latte, take a look at our recipe guide.
