Poll: People would name their kid "Pumpkin Spice" in exchange for free PSLs for life

People would literally name their child
Pumpkin Spice

How far are you willing to go for pumpkin spice latte? I bet not nearly as far as those who are spotted wearing Uggs, yoga pants and scarves, gushing about PSL season as early as AUGUST, before leaves are even falling. It's still 75-plus degrees out — aren't you hot!?

The cringe-worthy social posts are already happening, and don't expect them to slow down anytime soon. These kind of people cannot hide their obsession with pumpkin spice. Eighty percent are on the pumpkin spice bandwagon — for life, it appears.

A whopping 35% of the people polled by Fox News said they were willing to name a child “Pumpkin Spice” if that landed them PSL for the remainder of their days. Three words come to mind – scarred for life.

The Fox News survey consisted of 2,000 people and found that the majority of Americans love pumpkin spice so much that they'd be willing to sign a petition to allow the flavor to be available throughout the year.

This isn’t a trend for these people. It is a way of life, when 68% of them admitted starting craving pumpkin spice season before September even arrives.  

Seventy-nine percent would be willing to add their name to a petition, all to ensure one of their favorite fall flavors continues through the rest of the seasons.

Forty one percent of them were willing to give up carbs to get PSL for life. Is this the same 41% who also agreed to give up alcohol? Or stand in line at the DMV monthly for the rest of their lives? WHO DOES THIS?!

Two out of five were willing to take a red-eye flight weekly if it guaranteed PSLs for life. Even 28% of people would give up chocolate in exchange for free PSLs.

This one really gets me — three of ten admitted they would be willing to sit in traffic for two hours EVERY DAY. All because of pumpkin. spice. lattes. 

These people are not drinkers of Death. Our Cauldron Aged Pumpkin blend is packed with no frills and zero bullshit.
