Yesterday Starbucks brought back the #PumpkinSpiceLatte and Becky’s from all over the world turned off season 2 of This is Us, threw on some Lulu Lemon spandex, and braved the wild after a six-month hibernation to Instagram the drink that is basically liquid diabetes using the caption “Treat Yo-self <3.”

Despite what the haters say, I most certainly didn’t throw a hoodie on with big dark sunglasses and whisper my order to a Starbucks employee using an alias. I would NEVER loosen my grip of trivial, unfounded stigma to enjoy an objectively, delicious, refreshing beverage. How dare you accuse me of not being stubborn to a fault. 

In any event, the LaAaAdiez of Twitter slurped up the unveiling of Starbucks’ most polarizing offering with hundreds of thousands of emoji-filled tweets. But if you were wondering which state in this great country is the most #obsessed with the drink, the folks at can give you that answer.

In just one day, geotagged over 100,000 tweets about about Pumpkin Spice Lattes. From this we are able to decipher the most basic states in the union.

Here are the top 5:
1. Tennessee
2. West Virginia
3. Washington
4. Oregon
5. Indiana

What’s particularly fascinating is that Tennessee accounted for 41% of the ENTIRE twitter conversation about Pumpkin Spice Lattes. For perspective, the next closest state was West Virginia at 6%.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
