Pumpkin Spice Latte

So after hearing all my friends rave about the Starbucks Pumpkin Spike Latte (there's a FIERCE fanbase) I caved and tried one yesterday. My God, that was the sweetest beverage I've ever had, period. Sweeter than pumpkin pie. Tasted even sweeter than regular Coke too, it seemed. I can't even imagine how many packets of sugar even a small would have the equivalent of, and how many calories must be in it. Does anyone else feel this way? Why are people so obsessed with this thing?
