Are you a pumpkin spice latte kind of person?

In all honesty, I’m not.

I can’t remember when I started drinking coffee, but whenever that was – back in the dark ages – I never liked anything in my coffee. No sugar or cream or flavorings of any kind. Weirdly, whenever I drank iced coffee, however, I always liked sweetener in it. Go figure.

A friend of mine absolutely loves pumpkin latte. She waits all year for it to become popular. Of course, she drinks hazelnut coffee the rest of the year. That’s why we have vanilla and chocolate. It takes all kinds, right?

Pumpkin is really good for you. It has a lot of fiber. I’ve made some vegan pumpkin bars that are yummy, but not very often since they use date sugar and I’m trying to avoid anything that would elevate my blood sugar. One of the safest sugar replacements is erythritol – marketed under various names. My favorite is Swerve. Their brown sugar is amazing in that it is soft and looks and tastes exactly like brown sugar.

One of my favorite things at Thanksgiving used to be pumpkin pie, covered in whipped cream. Thanksgiving is going to be quite a challenge at the Ranney house this year. We may just do the Fourth of July thing, but instead of hot dogs and hamburgers will do soy dogs and impossible burgers.

So, do you like pumpkin spice latte? If not pumpkin spice are you in favor of other flavors in your coffee?
