Please Make The Pumpkin Spice Latte Vegan

I am a huge fan of Starbucks. My girlfriend and I will visit our favorite location up to four times a week. We are also both vegan. Normally this is not a tremendous issue at Starbucks because so many drinks can be made with vegan and dairy-free ingredients, which generally just means using soy milk instead of cows milk.

Sadly, in the case of the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte, this does not hold true. There is currently no vegan option for this drink mix, which is a total bummer. After speaking with numerous other friends of mine from across the country, I have decided to start this petition to ask Starbucks to please change the ingredients of this beloved beverage so that all of their loyal patrons may enjoy it every autumn -- even the vegans and lactose-intolerant customers!

Many people are shocked to hear that the mix contains condensed milk because there's no way anyone would be able to tell walking into a store and placing an order. Employees don't even realize it has milk in it!

A previous petition on convinced Starbucks to stop using crushed bugs as a food coloring because that just doesn't make sense regardless of if you're vegan or not.

This also makes sense regardless of if you're vegan or lactose-intolerant or not because nothing about 'pumpkin' or 'spice' has to come from an animal! And Starbucks can already make drinks with soy milk -- which they charge extra for, but that's a whole different complaint.


Please sign and share!

      The pumpkin spice latte sounds amazing! I have no idea why there would be milk in the ingredients when made with soy milk, it makes no sense!! I stop buying drinks from starbucks when the pumpkin spice latte is for sale because I get jealous of everyone who can drink it!
