If you’re allergic to dairy or are on a dairy-free diet, pumpkin spice lattes are not the best option for you, even though it’s fall and the weather calls for it. Most coffee places, including Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, have dairy in their pumpkin spice sauce — condensed milk in the former and skim milk in the latter. Who would have thought Dunkin’ Donuts was the most health conscious place out of the two?
It’s understandable to feel betrayed, but for vegans and people who are lactose intolerant it must make sense why their bodies feel strange after drinking those pumpk-eny lattes. At least the drink is seasonal? I guess.
If you’re considering suing Starbucks because it’s the only way to vent out the full length of your betrayal, we’re sorry to inform you that the pumpkin syrup contents are displayed proudly on their website. So you can’t even get reimbursed for all your pain.
Anyways, it sucks but it’s the truth. Pumpkin spice lattes were never the most health oriented option, with almost 200 calories in the smallest Starbucks size (excuse you, it’s called Tall) but now, they’re also potentially dangerous. Or can produce a mild case of diarrhea. Maybe it’s time for the fall trend to go away. In the meantime, you can watch this video of people trying out pumpkin spice lattes for the first time, because why the hell not?
