The pumpkin spice latte is said to have started America's craze with all things "fall flavored."

SALT LAKE CITY ― Fall is a time for football, corn mazes and pumpkin spice.

According to The Washington Post, the flavor — a combination of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and, of course, pumpkin — started to gain popularity about 15 years ago when Starbucks introduced the pumpkin spice latte to its seasonal menu.
