It’s the season of the basic witch and her favorite drink companion the pumpkin spice latte. The sugary, high-calorie latte flavored with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon and glows an intoxicating fall orange is available for the season. This coffee-based drink spark debates every season, you either hate it or you love it.
These celebrities have shared that they are fans of the drink and not just the popular Starbucks one.
Katy Perry isn’t afraid to protest her love for a good ol’ pumpkin spice latte. The singer took to Twitter several years ago sharing that she was excited to drink it up! “ERMAGERD we’re ONE day away from pumpkin spice latte’s!” She proclaimed excitedly.

Her followers around the globe immediately backed her up; one from Canada shared that the Canadians finally got the opportunity to indulge as well. Since professing her adoration for the drink, Perry has been spotted around Fall serval times drinking out of Starbucks’ signature Fall cups, we can only assume it’s her PSL.
Taylor Swift can’t stop talking about her love for the latte. She has tweeted about it many, many times and some of those tweets come with photos. One of the more popular tweets read, “it’s Red season” while Swifty sipped on a Starbucks PSL.
The tweet served as a double entendre referencing her “Red” album and the coffee company’s signature fall cup that was gearing up to come out for the season. The singer’s Tumblr page also served as an homage to her love for the drink and the season.
“Not caring when people make fun of pumpkin-flavored stuff cause you LOVE IT and are happy it’s all the rage.”
Believe it or not, world-renowned chef, Gordon Ramsay also likes a little pumpkin spice in his life. Admittedly, he doesn’t go as hard as some of the other people on this list, but he has admitted that his lips have lingered on PSL a time or two.
In true Ramsay fashion, there are stipulations. “Love them around October / November time” he wrote in response to a fan of the chef asking what he thought of the popular drink. Ramsay didn’t go into detail about why he specifies the time when he enjoys the drink.

He probably just wants to throw a little rebellion behind his conformity. But also, he appreciates good flavor combos and even a non-fan can see that pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and whatever else is in that concoction makes a tasty drink.
It’s important to note that reality tv star Kristen Cavallari is not even a coffee drinker and the power of the pumpkin spice has managed to conform her. Well, for the Fall season at least. The mom of three once tweeted that she didn’t realize what she was missing out on.
“Seriously pumpkin spice latte…I don’t remember u being THIS good. Looks like I’ll be drinking coffee this fall,” she asked in early October of 2012.

Her followers quickly reminded her she was late to the game and better “get it while you can” because hardcore lovers of the orange drink know it is only available for a limited time.
The actress/writer/director described herself as a pumpkin spice connoisseur. She claims to be an OG fan of the drink, she proved it by working with Shape magazine to taste test several variations of the drink from different brands and in different product forms.
“My Spice Girl name is Pumpkin Spice,” she joked alongside the video of herself trying out the different PSL. “I taste-tested some of the best fall pumpkin spice options out there so you don’t have to!” she continued.
Of course, Starbucks was one of her faves. “It’s good! I guess I’m that basic girl, ’cause this tastes damn good,” she declared. She also tried some pumpkin spice-flavored food like Madeleine cookies and pumpkin dark chocolate mini muffins.

They didn’t quite measure up to the drink itself. She saved her followers a lot of coins!
