“Signature espresso and steamed milk, with a combination of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove flavors. Served over ice and topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin-pie spices.”

STARBUCKS: PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE (ICED)

When we were younger, we used to look up to the iconic “Starbucks PSL” arriving each year. Perhaps the burden of age and college apps have dampened our opinions, but this was fairly mediocre. There was a lack of pumpkin flavor for the amount of milk put in, the whipped cream was watery and sparse and the cinnamon was too heavily concentrated at the top. However, something about the Starbucks cup is oddly appealing, which increases presentation points. Starbucks is also consistent with their pricy drinks, so the $5.95 was pretty standard.

OVERALL RATINGS:

Fall Flavor: 3/5

Presentation: 3/5

Worth it?: 2.25/5
