Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Posted on: September 6, 2019

It may not be officially Fall yet but Starbucks has announced the unofficial start to the season with the release of its PSL a.k.a. Pumpkin Spice Latte.  This year Starbucks had released their iconic fall drink earlier than ever and we couldn’t be more happy.  It’s time to say goodbye to the hot and humid sunny days and say hello to brisk fall mornings as we make the transition from light and fruity drinks to more heartier beverages.

Fall is one of my favourite seasons for numerous reasons, it’s the start of sweater season, movie marathons, extra hour of darkness (more sleep), comfort food and the list is endless!  The PSL from Starbucks and this aromatic beverage gives me all the fall vibes.  The iconic PSL is described as espresso and milk, highlighted by the flavour notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.  Enjoy it topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin pie spices.  New to their fall line up is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew!  Cold brew, vanilla, pumpkin cream cold foam and pumpkin spice topping.  Don’t forget about the yummy treats to accompany your coffee i.e.  Pumpkin spice madeleines and pumpkin cream cheese muffins . . . Mmmmm!

Not cold enough?  You can enjoy this fall staple hot, iced or in frappuccino form.  Fan-favourites are also making a comeback such as the Salted Caramel Mocha and Cardamom Latte.

Hurry, it’s never too early to get your hands on this festive treat.
