Pumpkin Spice Latte Returns on August 30
The drink will be available till the supplies last this year. The drink is also offered by other coffee chains that have already launched it at their stores this year, including Dunkin. Last year, Starbucks launched it on August 24.
Announcing the roll-out of PSL, Starbucks wrote on their official website, “The first sip of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew cues the unofficial start of the fall season for many customers, and Starbucks is celebrating its return alongside a full menu of fall favorites.”

Pumpkin flavored products are usually launched every year during the fall season and remain in huge demand. Earlier in August, Oreo announced that they were planning to bring back a pumpkin spice-flavored cookie after a gap of five years. Dunkin and Goldfish have also announced a pumpkin-inspired collaboration this year, the Pumpkin Spice Grahams.
Starbucks will also Roll Out Other Customer-Favorite Drinks from Tuesday
Apart from PSL, the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew will also be available from August 30. The drink is a combination of Starbucks Cold Brew with sweet vanilla syrup, topped with pumpkin cream cold foam and pumpkin spice.
The Apple Crisp Macchiato, which was first introduced by Starbucks last year, will also return having oat milk and Starbucks Blonde espresso, along with cinnamon, apple, brown sugar and a spiced apple drizzle.
Talking about the drink, Harvey Rojas Mora, Starbucks beverage developer, said, “Crafting the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato with Starbucks Blonde Espresso gives the beverage a soft and smooth foundation that ties all the flavors together. The oatmilk adds a creaminess and brings forward the oat flavors of a traditional apple crisp topping.”
Several pumpkin-flavored bakery products will also be available at the coffee house, including Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, Pumpkin Scone for a limited time and the Pumpkin Loaf, which is available year-round.
The Coffeehouse has also Launched a Pumpkin Based Game
