Sorry, Pumpkin Spice Latte Lovers: You’ll Have to Wait a Little Longer This Year …
Bad news, PSL diehards.
You’re going to have to wait a little longer this year to get your fix of Starbucks’ iconic fall beverage, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. While last year the latte was available in stores starting Aug. 26, this year, fans will have to wait until Sept. 8, CNBC reports.
The news will surely devastate fans who’ve been expecting to have a PSL in their hand on Sept. 1, the unofficial beginning of fall.
This has been a buzzy few days for the polarizing latte. Last week, Starbucks announced that it had tweaked the classic recipe and will now be adding real pumpkin, which has upset PSL purists and excited PSL skeptics, who never understood why the drink had “pumpkin” in its name without containing pumpkin.
For those who refuse to wait that extra week to get their hit of sweet, caffeinated autumn goodness, try making your own version at home. Or, simply enjoy the prolonging of summer.
