pumpkin spice latte

Starbucks just brought back the Pumpkin Spice Latte earlier than ever

If you're already waiting for a taste a fall, look no further because Starbucks Canada just brought back the Pumpkin Spice Latte

While most of the country is still experiencing a summer heat wave, the favourite autumnal coffee is now available in stores starting today. 

While this is the earliest Starbucks has ever brought back the PSL, given the less-than-perfect year everyone has had, many are welcoming the seasonal beverage with open arms. Perhaps this is even a sign that 2020 is looking up. 

"Starbucks just sent me an email saying pumpkin spice is back... today is going to be a good day," another coffee-lover wrote.

Also returning is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew - an icy drink with pumpkin cream and pumpkin spice that the coffee company launched in 2019 - the Salted Caramel Mocha, and of course, the pumpkin scone, and the pumpkin cream cheese muffin.

But that's not all.

If you're tired of pumpkin spice and want something different to try this fall, Starbucks has launched the new Apple Oat Flat White exclusively in Canada. The drink is made with steamed oat beverage, apple syrup, and a clove sugar topping. 

Starbucks lost $3 billion in the last quarter due to the pandemic so the early launch date is also likely an effort to boost sagging sales.
