Sure, people like pumpkin spice, but one woman has taken her obsession of #PSL to the extreme. 

Sherry Lynn Gustafson of Moline, Illinois has purchased 52 boxes of HyVee pumpkin spice latte mix, enough for an entire year’s worth of coffee drinks, reports WQAD 8.

“I love pumpkin pie, and this is like pumpkin pie with whipped cream on it in a drink. So, I can drink as much I want, less calories too,” said Gustafson. While her homemade version may be healthier than a slice of traditional pumpkin pie, a grande Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks comes in at a hefty 380 calories, with  13 grams of fat. 

Gustafson began buying the drink from her local gas station but started making her own to save money. She told WQAD 8 she’s loved the drink for over 10 years and considers it an “addiction.” When shopping for her stock, she even began spacing out her trips.

“I don’t want them to think I’m a nut, so I get a little bit at a time,” Gustafson  says.

The latte lover says she plans on purchasing at least 30 more boxes before the season is over.
