Woman Buys a Year's Supply of Pumpkin Spice Lattes


It's that time of year that when you're not carving a pumpkin -- you're likely drinking one. Pumpkin spice everything is all over menus and store shelves right now. But one Quad City woman is making it a year-round tradition.

Sherry Lynn Gustafson is getting her fix loading up on pumpkin spice lattes.

"I love pumpkin pie and this is like pumpkin pie with whipped cream on it in a drink, so I can drink as much I want, less calories too," said Gustafson.

It's an obsession she's had ten years in the making.

"I got hooked and then I used to go get them at the gas station then I used to start making my own," said Gustafson.

Her love of the seasonal drink, however, goes beyond most.

"I get worse as we go. I start hoarding now so I might have to rethink how many we have to get," said Gustafson.

Gustafson decided to stock up so she can drink pumpkin spice all year long. She bought 52 boxes.

"I don't want them to think I'm a nut so I get a little bit at a time," said Gustafson.

When the rest of the world has moved onto eggnog and peppermint, Gustafson will be relaxing in her living room with the only spice she'll ever need, and she'll have it all year round.

"Whenever I need a fix, I'll get it," said Gustafson.

Gustafson plans on buying at least 30 more boxes.
