Starbucks’ sickly sweet harbinger of fall, the pumpkin spice latte, is now back on menus nationwide, according to a press release.

So what is really in a PSL?Well in the press release, the coffee chain describes the drink as a “handcrafted” beverage made with “Starbucks signature espresso, perfectly steamed milk, and fall spices including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove.”

The actual ingredient list(below) doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as easily:

Milk, Pumpkin Spice Sauce [Sugar, Condensed Skim Milk, Pumpkin Puree, Contains 2% Or Less Of Fruit And Vegetable Juice For Color, Natural Flavors, Annatto, Salt, Potassium Sorbate], Brewed Espresso, Whipped Cream [Cream (Cream, Milk, Mono And Diglycerides, Carrageenan), Vanilla Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid)], Pumpkin Spice Topping [Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Clove, Sulfiting Agents].

Still the drink, which looks (and smells) like a melted Yankee candle, isn’t as Frankenstein-ien as one might expect. Besides having an absurdly high amount of sugar (a 16-ounce PSL made with 2% milk clocks in at 50 grams of sugar, more than the recommended amount for a whole day), the drink consists of relatively normal ingredients like cream, espresso, condensed skim milk and sugar.
