The moment fall is close to coming into the picture, fall items start arriving. One of the drinks I absolutely love, but dont order very often is the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Its pumpkin, its latte, and its pure magic. So when I spotted the Starbucks Via Pumpkin Spice packets on the shelf at Target, I quickly scooped up a box.
I heated up 1 cup of milk, added in the Via packet and stirred it up and it was HORRIBLE! Now, I love coffee, but this has a very, very bold coffee flavor to it. I actually picked up more of the coffee flavor than I did any pumpkin. The packet of mix smelled more of pumpkin in powder form than it did when it was mixed in with my milk. Once I mixed it with the milk it just smelled of very, very bold coffee. Now, I admit, I love coffee BUT Im more of a light and occasional medium roast coffee fan. This was so bold Id have to water it down to make it palatable, but by then Id probably end up just drinking 1-2 cups of milk with a mild flavor in the background. Id have to give it a nice dosing of sugar free pumpkin syrup and a few Equal packets, plus some additional milk to maybe even get a pumpkin flavor. Needless to say I was quite bummed, especially since the Via packets are not cheap.
Each pack has 60 calories to it, and you then need to add in your calories associated with the type of milk you use.
