Hillary Clinton admitted that she does not like pumpkin spice lattes.
On September 28, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate conducted a question-and-answer session on her Facebook page, encouraging people to ask her anything. A Facebook user asked the politician, “Hillary – are you a pumpkin spice latte kind of gal?” To which she responded, “Ha! The true answer is I used to be until I saw how many calories are in them.”
There’s no denying that Starbucks’ beloved PSL is pretty terrible for you (though it seems a little better now that it contains real pumpkin). A grande “skinny” (with skim milk) PSL contains 330 calories and 70 calories from fat. And that’s not even the worst drink for you that Starbucks makes. A grande salted caramel mocha, another of their seasonal offerings, with skim contains 410 calories and 100 calories from fat.
Clinton is definitely not the first celebrity to express a dislike for Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes. Food Network star Alex Guarnaschelli recently told us during a Twitter chat that she preferred salted caramel over pumpkin spice flavors.
That’s okay, Hillary, we think pumpkin spice is getting a bit out of hand too.
