Pumpkin Spice Latte


Huh! What do you know? I actually liked it!

Some context: I’ve never been big on trying new foods or drinks (except tea) but since I moved to England I’ve made myself to change this. Except for anything pumpkin flavoured. I don’t even know why! I actually like sweet pumpkin pie, but for some reason I’m always leery about anything with the word pumpkin in its name. However, everyone here seems to be gearing up for Halloween (bit early in my humble opinion), which means that the Headless Horseman’s preferred head-gear is everywhere. And that includes Starbucks. I had seen the words “pumpkin spice latte” before and usually my reaction was along the lines of, “Yeah, right. No!” But today, I don’t know, I guess I felt like trying something different.

So I went ahead and ordered it (in the smallest size available, I wasn’t exactly optimistic…) and it was…better than I thought it’d be. I’m not good at describing flavours so I’ll just say that to meet it tasted more like cinnamon that pumpkin. -shrug- Not unpleasant, but at the same time not something I’d make my regular choice. I suppose I would drink it if I was under the weather.

Yeah, not much of a reviewer, am I? In my defense I’ve never done this before (uni assignments DON’T COUNT!), but if you like cinnamon and espresso shots then have a go. You might like it.
