Monday afternoon, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton hosted a live Q&A session on her Facebook page. She talked about student loan debt, health care, on-campus sexual assault, and her family, among other things. But the answer that earned her the most “likes?” Her take on Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte.

When asked whether she is “a pumpkin spice latte kind of gal,” Clinton responded with, “Ha! The true answer is I used to be until I saw how many calories are in them.” Sometimes seen by voters as standoffish and untrustworthy, Clinton has increasingly been trying to demonstrate that she is a real person. While some users were skeptical, most appreciated Clinton’s candor; the former Secretary of State showed voters that she too has a soft spot for pumpkin spice, but that, like most of us, she has to watch what she eats.

Clinton also opened up about her granddaughter, mentioning that baby Charlotte had celebrated her first birthday this past weekend and took her first bite of cake. In response to question about how a young person could change the world, Clinton made a plug for It’s Your World!, her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s new book.

Many of the more serious questions during the Q&A focused on various health care topics, ranging from her thoughts on Republican attempts to shut down Planned Parenthood (“outrageous”), to how to make health care more affordable (“defend the Affordable Care Act”).

One voter wanted to know what Clinton would do about drug company price gouging a la last week’s Turing Pharmaceuticals scandal. Her response? “Force drug manufacturers to justify their prices, make sure they add real value. Require the largest drug manufacturers to invest a minimum amount in R&D and…let’s explore using some of these new research funds to invest directly in producing generic competitors where none exists.”

Clinton also talked about a few, under-the-radar issues that are close to her heart. These include “early childhood education; better treatment and prevention of substance abuse; removing the stigma around mental health…protecting voting rights; equal pay…wage stagnation; and getting dark money out of politics.”
