No Pumpkin In Pumpkin Spice

Posted: Updated:

Autumn is here and you know what that means, and you know what that means.

As soon as the first leaf turns colors, the pumpkin craze begins.

Pumpkin spice butter, Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses, Pumpkin Spice M&Ms, Pumpkin Pop Tarts and the favorite – Starbuck's Latte.

But brace yourself for this breaking news: your pumpkin spice latte doesn't actually have pumpkin in it!

The people FOX's Lidia Curanaj spoke to had no idea there wasn't any pumpkin in pumpkin spice.

Nutritionist Lisa Cohen, however, knew that. She said pumpkin itself is good for you and can boost your immune system and help you lose weight.

No worry, though, because pumpkin spices are also healthy and can get guys in the mood. They are loaded with antioxidants and actually an aphrodisiac particularly for men.

Curanaj has more details in this video report.
