Wait, what?! Summer has not even come to an end, and Starbucks is already preparing for their release of the popular seasonal drink, their pumpkin spice latte. You know, the pumpkin-and-cinnamon-flavored beverage that warms the hearts of pretty much every girl in America. The drink that you will see on numerous Instagram posts next to a picture of fallen leaves. Yes, that's the hot commodity item we are talking about.
So, ladies (and gentlemen), get your flannels and your favorite pair of Ugg boots out of storage because the PSL will be hitting a Starbucks near you before the end of the month. No, we are not lying or exaggerating. Goodbye, summer, because this autumnal staple means fall is definitely here.
So when does the pumpkin spice latte come out?
With summer coming to an end, our #basic hearts are searching for what we've been missing for almost a year. Fortunately, fans of the pumpkin-spiced sweetness will not have to wait too much longer.
According to Business Insider, Starbucks baristas informed the outlet that the pumpkin-flavored syrup has arrived at their stores. Though the popular coffee drink wasn't released until August 28 in 2018, BI has reported that the 2019 release date for the sugary drink will be August 27. Yes, that's one day earlier, which makes it the earliest launch in more than 10 years.
So, Starbucks is giving the people what they asked for, and we rounded up some (is there another word for basic?) tweets about how fans of the overpriced drink feel.
In August, you have to mentally prepare yourself for your bank account to take a big hit because you NEED your PSL and it's only here for a limited time. #Sorrynotsorry
If you're a die-hard PSL fan, you don't just stop at the latte. You really can tell which fans are genuine, as everything MUST be pumpkin flavored:
Girl, you took the words right out of our mouths. Overall, we can relate to this.
This may be the most #basic tweet, but basically you just tweeted what every girl was already thinking.
Seriously, can this statement be any more true?
Not everyone is excited for the autumnal festivities to begin. Case in point:
If you don't want to wait for your PSL in-store, don't worry, Starbucks recently released a new coffee creamer.
Satisfy your PSL craving with Starbucks' new Pumpkin Spice Latte creamer, which was released earlier this month. Don't wait to get your fix! You can pick up the new product at grocery stores nationwide, and the autumnal syrup will only set you back $4.99. That's cheaper than the grande PSL at your neighborhood Starbucks.
The coffee chain is giving #basic people what they want and didn't just stop at releasing PSL creamer. Starbucks released a whole line of pumpkin-inspired items. With pumpkin spice K-Cups, instant lattes, ground coffee, and cookie straws, your tastebuds will surely be satisfied.
Grab your flannel and favorite pair of Ugg boots, it's officially PSL season.
