Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Back Early

In case you didn’t hear, Starbucks had a soft-launch of their fall items yesterday.

Yes, you heard right! This is the earliest fall launch Starbucks has ever had. Let’s talk about the two drinks they’re promoting.

The two fall flavors that have come out so far are the infamous PSL, also known as the Pumpkin Spice Latte for those that don’t know, and the Salted Caramel Mocha.

Starbucks is promoting these two fall flavors as frappuccinos as a way to “transition” into fall, but from a marketing perspective, we all know that frappuccinos are what bring in more money. If you didn’t already know, there are three ways you can enjoy these two drinks!

Now for my personal preference, I like my drinks over iced, but make sure to tell them easy on the ice! Frappuccinos used to be appealing when I enjoyed an incredibly sugary drink, but now I can hardly get myself to finish a tall size. A hot latte does hit the spot on a cold winter morning, but I find it tedious that I have to stop and stir the cup with a wooden stick as I’m drinking it.

Also, there are a few new fall food menu items in stores as well! I’m not sure which items are only seasonal and which are here to stay, so stop by your local Starbucks and ask a cashier!

School just started up again for me this week, so what perfect timing for me to say goodbye to summer! What’s your favorite Starbucks drink?
