So this morning, I was reading through the comments on last night’s Tangents post and saw that Karen had mentioned Dunkin Donuts already having their Pumpkin Spice coffee available.
So then I even put out a call on Twitter to find out if the rumors were true, and many of you were just as excited about this information as I was…
By this point, I really couldn’t go much longer without finding out whether or not the rumors were true, so I hightailed it out to the closest DD’s to get the scoop.
Well, here’s the scoop…
Pumpkin Spice is BACK, baby!
I know it’s still August. I know it’s still technically summer. But today it’s damp and dreary, and gosh darn it, I wanted some pumpkin spice in my life. Ohhhhh pumpkin spice, how I’ve missed you!
FYI: Want to make your pumpkin spice coffee a little healthified?
The syrup that DD uses is thick and full of sugar and calories. From what I remember, a medium will typically have about 160 calories, and that’s with using 3 pumps of syrup. So do what I do and ask for 1-1/2 pumps (half the amount of syrup) – you still get plenty of pumpkin flavor, with half the guilt!
