The most basic of all basic drinks is back in action at a Starbucks near you. On August 28, the coffee chain delivered the Pumpkin Spice latte to its menu, and swarms of customers started lining up for the most joyful part of an autumn day…
It isn’t even fall yet.
We still have around one month left of official summer, and depending on where you live, it probably don’t feel like fall at all outside. Our air conditioners are still blasting on high and our sunglasses are still our first morning grab before we head outside into the blazing golden light.
But that’s not going to stop Starbucks and its dedicated Pumpkin Spice Latte fans from getting their fix early. This is the ultimate example of a product that’s so beloved by consumers, it’s extended past the traditional months that people expect it to become available.
Of course, not everyone wants to drink a piping hot beverage in August. So for those of you who love Pumpkin Spice lattes but don’t want your body temp to spike, an iced latte is available too. And since Starbucks has introduced cold foam to their menu, you can also order your iced beverage with a cool and frothy topping a la the hot one’s whipped cream.
We recently asked you what your favorite Starbucks beverages were on a hot summer day… Here’s the results. Unfortunately, we didn’t know at the time that the pumpkin spice latte was about to be back in action. So perhaps that’s the answer that many members were dreaming up when they responded with the “other” category. You tell us. How do you feel about pumpkin spice lattes?
