It’s not even September yet, but pumpkin spice mania has already swept the nation.

While we’re still trying to cram in our last beach days, fall has swiftly crept up on us. How do we know? Seasonal M&Ms have begun popping up on Target shelves.

Two weeks ago, M&Ms unveiled a new pecan pie version, and on Wednesday, an M&Ms rep confirmed with PEOPLE that a pumpkin spice latte flavor will hit Target stores this week. That’s right not pumpkin spice, but pumpkin spice latte, thus taking the PSL-craze to entirely new, uncharted territory.

The seasonal M&Ms come in very autumnal packaging, featuring a maternal brown M&M wrapped up in a chunky scarf, sipping on a latte. (She’s wearing glasses, of course.)

We’re interested in seeing how the “latte” part comes into play, flavor-wise. Will these be creamier-tasting than last year’s pumpkin spice M&Ms? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by frantically buying up all the new PSL M&Ms the moment they appear in our local Target.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
