What Exactly is Pumpkin Spice


It is officially fall. Many have been long awaiting the return of the pumpkin spice lattes to coffee retailers. This fall trend is a retail start to the seasons.  

But many may be surprised that their specially concocted coffees carry the pumpkin name but actually contain no pumpkin at all. 

So what is in pumpkin spice?

  • 2 parts ground nutmeg
  • 1 part ground cloves
  • 1 part ground ginger
  • 1 part ground allspice
  • 1 part ground cinnamon

There you have it. The blend of spice with no pumpkin at all which gets us all festive feeling inside. Enjoy!
