Summer Is Over: Pumpkin Spice Latte M&Ms Hit Supermarket Shelves
It’s not even September yet, but pumpkin spice mania has already swept the nation.
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.
