With the recent cooling down of temperature, many students are enjoying the fall weather. However, for some students, this recent drop in degrees temperature spells trouble.
Due to the weather being cold enough to put on a light sweater, many people are flocking to Starbucks to warm themselves up. Barista Sacha DelMarco explains the new dilemma. “Within the past two days, I’ve seen more basic girls than I have during sorority rush week. But to add on top of that, they all order the same thing, Pumpkin Spice Lattes,” says DelMarco, “all while chanting in unison, ‘it’s spooky season, it’s spooky season”.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes (PSL), which are also called the “basic chick’s delicacy”, are very rare in Florida as it is normally too hot outside to consume. However, because it is “basically freezing outside now”, many people are classifying it as a new basic nutrient to survive in this cold weather.
“I mean I love the weather, but as a natural Floridan I need a PSL at least every hour to keep me warm,” says Sarah Williams-Smith, a junior computer science major.
While many students agree with Williams-Smith, DelMarco says the issue comes when so many people flock to the coffee spot at one time. “I understand wanting to drink the PSL, I’m a fan myself, but when every girl and their sister come in for a PSL four times a day, we tend to run out of everything. Also not to mention the line. It’s just awful for anyone trying to order anything other than a PSL,” said DelMarco.
However, DelMarco does warn consumers to be careful of too much PSL. “There’s an unusally high level of sugar, as well as a hike in your basic chick tendencies. Some symptoms may include extreme RBF, a new development for ugg boots, and being rude to your baristas.” DelMarco just wants to stress the dangers and make sure the customers are aware of the side effects of the delicious drink.
