When does the PSL come out at Starbucks this year?

With summer coming to an end, our #basic hearts can't help but search for what we've been missing for almost a year.

Fortunately, fans of the pumpkin-spiced sweetness don't have to wait much longer for the widely beloved drink — which many consumers describe as fall in a cup — because the PSL and the pumpkin spice cold brew coffee will launch in stores on Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2022.

That's right, the billion-dollar coffee company is once again bringing back the iconic autumnal drink at the end of August. And we don't know about you, but we certainly can't wait to taste the pumpkin goodness!

The upcoming Starbucks fall menu will bring back plenty of classics, such as the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and an updated version of the Apple Crisp Macchiato, now made with Oatmilk and Starbucks Blonde Espresso. This marks the first nondairy fall beverage for the company.

Other items on the fall menu will include the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, the Pumpkin Scone, the Pumpkin Loaf, and the brand-new Owl Cake Pop (which looks absolutely adorable, by the way).

Starbucks has a pumpkin spice coffee creamer, so you can skip the PSL line.

Starbucks has enabled all of us to satisfy our PSL cravings with Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte creamer, which was released in August 2018. We expect the seasonal product be sold soon at most grocery stores across the country.

Based on 2021's lineup (pumpkin spice K-Cups, instant lattes, ground coffee, pumpkin spice latte almond and oat milk coffee creamer, pumpkin spice cold brew concentrate, and more), there will surely be so many ways to satisfy our basic, fall-loving taste buds this year as well.

Twitter is always hype about the pumpkin spice latte's return.

At last, Starbucks has given the people what they've been asking for, so in the spirit of basic betches, we rounded up some of the greatest tweets surrounding the bougie beverage. Check them out below!
