Yes, it's that time of year.
Starbucks' most popular seasonal drink, the pumpkin spice latte (aka, the PSL!), is finally back, y'all. The return of the pumpkin-and-cinnamon-flavored beverage that warms the hearts of millions of Americans every year means summer is officially over, and fall has finally begun. #SorryNotSorry, pumpkin spice haters and summer lovers.
For those who are wondering when the pumpkin spice latte will come out, get your flannels and your favorite pair of Ugg boots out of storage because the PSL is about to take over the entirety of your Instagram feed.
The return of the PSL marks the return of fall. So, when is your favorite Instagramable drink hitting Starbucks?
With summer coming to an end, our #basic hearts have been searching for what we've been missing for almost a year. Fortunately, fans of the pumpkin-spiced sweetness no longer have to wait for the widely beloved drink, which many describe as fall in a cup.
The coffee company has brought back the autumnal drink on the third Tuesday in August the last few years, so we wouldn't be surprised if this rumor turns out to be true.
Twitter is always hyped about the pumpkin spice latte's return.
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.
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.
However, not everyone is excited for the autumnal festivities to begin. Case in point:
In 2018, Starbucks released a new 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 at the end of summer 2018. The product is sold at most grocery stores across the country, and the autumnal syrup only sets you back a mere $4.99, which — let's face it — is much cheaper than snagging a grande PSL from your neighborhood Starbucks. Sorry, but it's true!
Our beloved Starbies has also given #basic guys and gals what they want in the comfort of their homes, an entire line of pumpkin-inspired items. Between pumpkin spice K-Cups, instant lattes, ground coffee, and cookie straws, there are so many ways to satisfy our basic, fall-loving taste buds.
Break out your flannel, a beanie, and your duck boots, guys — PSL season is basically in full swing, whether you like it or not. And TBH, we are loving it.
