Are You Excited That Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte Is Back? Because This Guy Sure Isn’t
By Cooking Panda
It’s that time of year again, folks. The time of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
In the past few years, Starbucks’ autumn-themed drink has developed somewhat of a cult following. It’s so popular, in fact, that it even has its own Twitter handle that fans can follow to keep up on all the PSL-related news.
Look, we all know how over-hyped the drink is. But the truth of the matter is, if you don’t want to purchase (or worship) the PSL, nobody is forcing you to.
However, one man from Philadelphia still takes issue with Starbucks for promoting the PSL every time it returns; Per Metro, ever since 2014, Sean Bauer has been protesting what he deems the “Premature Pumpkin Spicing.”
“I always see people talking about the drama [surrounding] this pumpkin-spice thing. When some people think about fall, they think of horrible artificial taste. We don’t see it that way,” Bauer told PhillyVoice of his anti-PSL movement.
“When I think about fall, I’m picturing myself wearing a flannel shirt, drinking something like apple cider, not a sugary, fake nutmeg taste.”
Apparently, Bauer isn’t a fan of the taste, but that’s not what enrages him so much about PSL season; he takes issue with the fact that PSL season seems to come earlier and earlier every year.
“It’s that whole Stockholm Syndrome thing. People wouldn’t care about purchasing it if it was available year-round,” explained Sean to Metro.
So, what say you? Are you pro-PSL? Or will you be joining Bauer on the streets to protest their return?autumn, latte, pumpkin spice, Starbucks
