Shocking that mass produced food is chemical garbage...

To be fair: the "pumpkin" flavor that everyone loves, it's really just cinnamon, sugar and cloves.

...although 2 of those 3 don't seem to be in that list of ingredients either.

That's because, like Angry Drunk Bureaucrat pointed out, it's a pumpkin spice latte -- flavored with the spices that you associate with pumpkin, but not with pumpkin itself.

Who would have imagined that a beverage consisting of coffee, milk, and sugar would not have any actual pumpkin in it?? Why, I bet their hazelnut lattes dont actually have nuts in the drink!

Not surprising since real pumpkin would just add a bunch of liquid and little to no flavor.

If by sick you mean...er...liquid ejecta of the rearward kind...you might avoid annatto. One of the traditional uses of annatto was as a laxative.

You find a lot of it in stuffing mixes. Around Thanksgiving, I'm parked on the john, vowing never to eat boxed stuffing mix again.

Most of the more clever companies call their product "Pumpkin SPICE", which is in reality just the cinnamon & nutmeg spices used in pumpkin pie but no pumpkin itself. You'd think there would be at least one guy at DD that had a brain that clever.
 
2013-10-08 12:54:48 PM
Next you'll tell me they aren't even made in the store but at centralized bakeries likely two states away and trucked in.

Maybe there's a time of the day I'm missing when they're fresh and delicious, but the prepackaged donuts you find at any store are usually better than Dunkin's. Which is kind of sad when donuts are supposed to be your specialty.

There's your pumpkin. You would use extract, because actual pumpkin would end up being too gummy or stringy for an enjoyable texture in a donut.

Plus, again, if you put actual pumpkin in your latte, it's going to be kinda chunky.

Guar Gum? Can't be like the Guar Gum dear ol' mom used to make for us kids in her basement laboratory. Get home from a busy day at school and that smell of fresh Guar Gum would hit you smack in the face just like a smack in the face. Oh boy! Guar Gum!

The smell would bring all the other kids up to the back door. "Guar Gum!" they'd yell. Dad would come out and shoo the kids away with a couple of short bursts from his M3 Grease Gun. It wasn't his fault. He always confused the neighbor kids with Chinese Communists and the back porch with the 38th parallel.

Mom would mix that fresh-out-of-the-sterile-environment Guar Gum in to the evening meal of fried rat and gutter salad. We said an extra prayer of thanks to the volcano goddesses that evening before eating.

Wonderful times.

Or they just don't want to tell you which spices they use and fall back on what is in virtually every ingredients list I've ever read:

Pumpkin Pie Flavored Buttercreme Filling: Sugar, Vegetable Shortening (Palm Oil, Canola Oil, Mono and Diglycerides), Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Spices, Yellow 5, Corn Starch, Guar Gum, Salt, Natural Flavor, Artificial Color (Fractionated Coconut Oil, Caramel Color, Blue 2 Lake, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Sunflower Lecithin), Polysorbate 60, Red 40, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Citric Acid;

Still, you would kind of think some pumpkin would be found in a bread product named after it, and pumpkins are fairly cheap to begin with aren't they?

Long Island Iced Tea contains no tea. Very often, it contains no ice.

The kruller is the most buttery of doughnuts, yet it contains no butter.

"Dairy" products frequently contain no milk, only partially hydrogenated soya bean by-product or chalk as a whitener (it's called sodium bicarbonate or something else when it is in food).

And so it goes, and so it goes.

If science ever figures out why people are sickly and obese nowadays, there will be one Hell of a battle royale over the absence of food in food products. It'll make global warming look like bipartisan accord on flying more patriotic flags on Patriotic Flag Day at its finest.

I formulate things like this for my company, but I don't use anywhere near that much junk in my projects. And if I need color, I use natural ingredients.

Every once in a while I may add potassium sorbate to preserve products, but that's rare. We formulate  natural and sustainable products almost exclusively now.

It's odd that there is no pumpkin in a pumpkin flavoured product. There's about ten cans of the stuff lying around per capita, some of it dating to the First Thanksgiving. Pumpkins reproduce like rabbits. They grow so big you can make them into small boats and race them.

Why is there a pumpkin shortage when nobody has ever been short of pumpkin?

It's a conspiracy. They are withholding pumpkins from us.

I suspect that pumpkin cookies cure cancer. That's why Mrs. Kerry-Heinz's spicy pumpking cookies lost the Election in 2004 for the bland, cliché, WASP joy of Tollhouse Cookies made by Laura Bush.

Buy a giant pumpkin and make it into ten 9-inch pumpkin pies. That'll show 'em. You'll have enough frozen pumpkin pies to survive the Apocalypse and the 1,000 Year Reign of Jesus and his Mormon Buddies on Earth.

Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins. Say it until it sounds even stupider and then until it loses all meaning.

Canadian Thanksgiving is only six days away.

That's because Dunkin's donuts are made off site, flash-frozen, shipped to their stores, and thawed.  I think mMany grocery bakeries still make theirs on site.

The day Dunkin went from sugar to high fructose corn syrup and annoying teen instead of Angry Because I Made a Poor Business Decision Pakistani I went elsewhere. Elsewhere Donuts. Home of the bottomless coffee cup. Don't wear sandals in here, Jebus. You'll get coffee all over your feet cause our cups are bottomless. Better leave a tip, Mister Gotrocks. Our waitresses have photographic memory and you don't want a refill from the 'special coffee pot'.
 
2013-10-08 01:13:15 PM
Maybe there is no pumpkin for the same reason that there's no cherries in cherry cobbler--they're using all the cherries to make Cherry Cola.

There's no apples in apple pie: they're using all the apples to make cherry cobbler.

There's no sponge in spongecake. They're using all the sponges to make apple pie.

And so forth.

To quote the immortal words of Al Yankovich, everything you know is wrong. I misspelled Al Yankovic and you probably didn't notice.

I've done my share of baking,  including baking the following goodies which contain pumpkin as a major ingredient: muffins, sweet breads, cakes (a wonderful chocolate chip pumpkin cake), and  cookies.  All of these recipes with pumpkin turn out a moist and flavorful product (with spices that go well with pumpkin such as cinnamon and nutmeg) and the pumpkin does add a bit of beta carotene.  If Dunkin Donuts advertises a pumpkin donut, I would think it should contain some real pumpkin.  The donut I think would be more moist and flavorful with real pumpkin and not just pumpkin flavor.
 
2013-10-08 01:18:02 PM
Well that is truly nasty.

However, the best pumpkin pie I have had didn't have any pumpkin. Sweet potatoes have much more flavor and less water than pumpkins. TMYK.

I had a few of those pumpkin pie donuts a couple weeks back, things are farking delicious.
