When most of the U.S. finally falls into autumn and a whole bunch of folks do a happy dance for all things pumpkin spice.
In fact, the venerable Pumpkin Spice Latte is already back in residency at Starbucks marking the 15th consecutive year of the concoction, which the coffee giant says is its most popular seasonal beverage.
With that in mind, Cosmopolitan asked Olympic bronze medalist Adam Rippon to sample several different pumpkin spice products as part of their ongoing “Adam Rippon Riffs On” series.
Of course, you have to begin with the aforementioned PSL from Starbucks, which Rippon awards a healthy “4 pumpkins.”
Next up, pumpkin spiced Kahlua which clearly takes awesome Adam by surprise. “Shut the video down, this is f**king amazing,” raves Rippon.
He then pours the liquer into the latte, and bam! We have a 5-pumpkin winner!
Rippon moves on to food next tasting a pumpkin spice bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese. Who wants to guess how that works out?
Annnnd, back to the Kahlua latte.
Pumpkin spice Frosted Flakes with pumpkin spice almond beverage? #seriously?
The cereal acquits itself well, but the almond beverage is apparently some serious version of nasty.
In fact, there’s only one way to salvage this breakfast. Want to take a guess?
