Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Back Next Week
Mark your calendar!
Although it’s not yet Labor Day, get ready for the return of one of your favorite autumn treats.
On Aug. 28, Pumpkin Spice Lattes will be back at Starbucks. The coffee chain is celebrating the drink’s 15th anniversary this year, and you can get your fix hot, iced or blended.
The return of the PSL is a full week earlier than last year’s release, which is good news for anyone who’s ready to trade in flip-flops and sunscreen for scarves and bonfires. Although Starbucks has not yet officially confirmed the return date, internal documents obtained by Bussiness Insider indicate that the drink’s return is scheduled for Aug. 28.
It’s been a long time since we’ve had one of these:
“Our pumpkins aren’t ready to make their handcrafted PSL debut yet — we’ll have more to share soon!” a Starbucks representative told Business Insider by email earlier this month.
But the internal documents of Starbucks’ fall menu show that the coffee chain will launch not only the PSL but also two other seasonal beverages, the Salted Caramel Mocha and the Teavana Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte, on Aug. 28. The Salted Caramel Mocha looks like the perfect way to warm up on a chilly autumn morning.
If summer weather is lingering in your neck of the woods, you can still indulge in a PSL by ordering it iced. The perfect blend of summer and fall!
Other Pumpkin Spice Treats
You can also get your fix at home with new Pumpkin Spice Cookie Straws and other PSL-flavored items available at grocery stores this year.
Some Rum With Your Pumpkin Spice?
If a boozy beverage is what you need, you might want to grab a bottle of Captain Morgan Jack-o-Blast Pumpkin Spice Rum. Not only does it taste like fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and other autumn spices, but it also comes in a jack-o-lantern-shaped bottle.
You can use the Jack-o-Blast rum to spike apple cider or mix up cocktails like the Smashed Pumpkin punch, which includes apple juice, pumpkin puree, regular and Jack-O’Blast rum and ginger beer.
Are you excited to get your PSL fix next week, or will you hold out until it feels more like fall?
