All the delicious taste, zero calories, zero carbs, no artificial ingredients
GILBERT, AZ (September 28, 2015) – In 2003, an annual trend based on existing tradition took the nation’s coffee cups by storm. Over the past twelve years, pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavors have become the new heralds of autumn and the holiday season. Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops® from SweetLeaf® mean anyone can enjoy this fall favorite anytime… adding flavor to food and drinks without adding calories, carbs, or artificial ingredients.
According to Nielsen, “70% of pumpkin-oriented grocery sales in the U.S. occurred between September and November.”1 Within the larger pumpkin category, Nielsen’s report also notes the Pumpkin Spice flavor is the second most popular choice in that spectrum. While some food trends tend to be somewhat random and making them more tenuous, the staying power of Pumpkin Spice comes from the relation to an existing annual occurrence. Its close tie to the fall holiday season gives Pumpkin Spice a sense of exclusivity, but also makes it cyclical—returning for a few months every year. SweetLeaf® Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops®, however, are available year-round, offering delicious, comforting flavor to beverages like coffee and tea, foods like oatmeal and yogurt, and an endless variety of recipes.
SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops® are made with organic stevia leaf extract. Just a few drops add sweet taste and the fall flavor consumers crave to recipes without adding calories, carbohydrates, or artificial ingredients.
To create a Pumpkin Spice Latte at home:
Simply Delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte
- 1 cup milk, divided
- 12 drops SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops®
