This Might Be The Exact Date Starbucks' PSL Returns
In 2022
When Peter Dukes created the Pumpkin Spice Latte, now Starbucks' most popular seasonal beverage, at the coffee giant's Seattle HQ in 2001, he didn't know that he was unleashing one of the coziest crazes in corporate coffee history. PSL fans are already marking their calendars for the drink's annual homecoming, and we think we may have an exact date for its return.
In 2018, Starbucks took the hint that pumpkin spice latte fans didn't want to wait until the leaves changed and released the drink on August 28. In 2019, Starbucks unleashed the spice a day earlier, and three days earlier the year after that. If this pattern continues, Starbucks' PSL will hit stores around the same time — or even sooner — this August.
Starbucks describes the Pumpkin Spice Latte as its "signature espresso and steamed milk with the celebrated flavor combination of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove." The company adds that the drink can be enjoyed hot or iced with whipped cream and "real pumpkin pie spices."
