Y’all, I don’t know if you know this – but I drink Starbucks pretty much every day. I’ve been very fortunate that all of my offices have always been within a block and that I am quickly able to develop new friendships with my favorite baristas. For the last five months, I’ve been on a repetition of Toffee Nut Lattes, but all of that will soon change! Pumpkin Spice is coming and this year Starbucks is announcing a new change to the PSL. Instead of just purchasing in stores, you can now find it at your nearby grocery store (out later this month!)
According to the release, the beverage consists of “high-quality arabica coffee with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spices, and creamy milk.”
The drink will be iced, and comes in a 14-fluid-ounce bottle for $2.79.
Additionally, Starbucks is releasing Pumpkin Spice Flavored Ground Coffee, so you can brew your own at home. The light roast coffee features notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Starbucks suggests adding a splash of cream and sugar in order to get a similar taste of the PSL. An 11-ounce bag will run you $9.99.
Personally, I prefer my Pumpkin Spice Latte to be hot so this doesn’t actually apply to be, but it’s funny to see how this cult favorite is expanding! The article says the drink is slated to return mid-September, but I’ve pretty much been asking my baristas every day for the last week if it’s arrived… and I know at some point they’ll probably let me have it a little earlier.

They’re almost here! August 25th to be exact. As much as I would love to say that having the Pumpkin Spice Latte year around would make me a happy girl, I know that I just wouldn’t be as excited about them if they weren’t a limited novelty. We certainly wouldn’t write posts about them like this on a yearly basis. I am very pleased about the return though and happy that it is coming sooner than the fall. It will still be the summer because I live in California and technically it is summer the whole year round.
Yum. I am going to drink you every single day.

Starting next week, Starbucks will introduce a new challenge to their fans on Facebook revolving around their popular seasonal drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Fans will compete to show how badly they want the drink to be released first in their city for the season and the winning city will receive the drink one week earlier than the rest of the world!
[The Facebook application] will include three different points-based activities. Beverage fans can earn points for city shout-outs, solving a daily challenge or making a daily creation.
A daily challenge might task a Facebook user to watch a video and answer trivia questions, Wheeler says. A daily creation, for instance, would have a user create and share a postcard for his or her city. “We’re providing the tools for users to create art and promote it,” Wheeler adds.
The contest will run from August 22nd-26th and the winning cities will receive the drink on August 30th.
