Ready or not, it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season

So sayeth Starbucks: Pumpkin Spice Lattes are returning for their 15th year to the coffee chain soon!


While summer is still gracing Metro Vancouver with warm temps (and smoky skies), one of the biggest harbingers of fall will soon be on the landscape. Pumpkin spice everything, including Starbucks’ infamous whipped-cream topped and spice-dusted milky espresso beverage, is about to take over.


The PSL will be available at Starbucks Canada locations starting Tuesday, August 28. You may have seen some countdowns at your local ‘bux, or from your PSL-addicted Facebook friends. It’s also a glorious time for memes, right?

Sweaters, scarves, boots…falling leaves and chilly nights, and pumpkin spiced products galore are on the horizon, whether we are ready or not.


Canadian Starbucks customers are also going to be able to get what the company is calling a “soon-to-be fall favourite” on the menu, exclusively in our fair nation. What could it be? Stay tuned!
