Pumpkin spice syrups, as the name suggests, are characterized by flavors of pumpkin and a mix of spices, primarily cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. It’s a flavoring that screams 'autumn,' so when these fall-themed drinks start to regularly appear on drink menus, you know that it’s the beginning of the season of fallen leaves, knit sweaters, and chillier days.
People start switching their summer coolers for warm spiced drinks, turning them into their regular beverage orders until winter rolls around. But before you start getting in your pumpkin spice fix of the day every day, it’s good to know what’s in what you consume, especially because the sugar and calories in these syrups can add up and mess up your healthy routine.
What Is In a Typical Pumpkin Spice Syrup?
What is pumpkin syrup made of? The ingredients of pumpkin spice syrup can vary, but generally, they contain pumpkin and different spices, along with sugar or syrup to give it its consistency. Standard pumpkin spice syrup contains:
- High-fructose corn syrup
- Brown sugar
- Caramel coloring
- Natural and artificial flavor
- Potassium sorbate (a preservative)
If you’re wondering about the calories in pumpkin spice syrup, you’re looking at around 50 calories (eleven grams of fat, one gram of protein, and twelve grams of sugar per pump). Baristas generally use two pumps per drink–so, those numbers generally double per serving.
Is It Okay to Have Pumpkin Spice Syrup Every Day?
It might be extremely tempting to get a pumpkin spice drink from your favorite coffee shop every day, but it may be best to switch up your orders once in a while as the syrups do contain sugar and calories.
