Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte returns today


August is coming to a close. Back-to-school season is in full swing. While sweltering summer temperatures are still bearing down on most of the U.S., we're all waiting for that first chill in the air that signals that fall is coming. 

And what does fall bring, other than crunchy leaves, sweaters and spooky season? Pumpkin spice lattes, of course. And for those of us who start to get a serious PSL craving this time of year, finally some good news: The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, starting tomorrow — along with the rest of the chain's fall menu.

PSLs are in good company this year

This is the Pumpkin Spice Latte's 20th year at Starbucks, and the fall menu features some other craveable fall treats. There are two new beverages this year: the Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken Espresso and the Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte. Returning favorites include the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato.

And what would a fall beverage be without a snack? This year, Starbucks is introducing a new tasty treat, the Baked Apple Croissant. But lovers of baked goods can get some familiar favorites as the chain brings back Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins and Owl Cake Pops.

If you happen to live near a Starbucks Reserve, you'll have some other tasty concoctions to try — locations in the U.S. are getting their own fall menu, which will include a Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Barrel-Aged Iced Latte and Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini. New artisanal Princi bakery items include a Pumpkin Maritozzo and Pumpkin Spice Cake.

Get your first taste of fall on Aug. 24
