Popularity of Pumpkin Spice Lattes

First, pumpkin spice lattes are a huge reason why pumpkin is so popular. Starbucks released its pumpkin latte in 2003, and it has been increasing in popularity every year since! In 2014 alone, they sold over 200 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is made up of espresso, steamed milk, pumpkin sauce, and spices. Though pumpkin itself has no coffee in it, the pumpkin flavor works well with the other flavors to make a sweet, caffeinated drink — perfect for autumn sipping.

The Addicting Aroma

It really comes down to pumpkin spice being popular because of its spicy smell and taste. Pumpkin spices are often associated with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, which all have very strong aromas that people love! When pumpkin season rolls around, everyone can't wait to bake some pumpkin bread or pumpkin cupcakes just so they can enjoy the scent of fall in their homes.

Pumpkin Spice Is Great for Baking Healthy Desserts

Pumpkin spice has also become popular because pumpkin itself is quite good for you. It's full of Vitamin A, antioxidants, and fiber that protect your body against disease. Now, many pumpkin-flavored foods are not pumpkin-based, but rather use pumpkin spices to enhance the flavor of their already existing products. These spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, however, offer health benefits of their own!

It's Simply Pumpkin Season

Pumpkin is an autumn staple! It only makes sense that pumpkin spice would become popular during the fall season. Pumpkins are available to use for food and decorations in September, October, and November. During this time pumpkin flavored foods are very appealing because you just want something pumpkin-y after months of summer flavors like watermelon and lemonade.
