Starbucks Celebrates First New Pumpkin Drink in 16 Years - Spoiler - It 's Cool

Falling leaves aside – the return of Pumpkin Spice Latte aka PSL, represents the true start of the autumn for many of us.

This year, Starbucks has declared August 27 as the first day of fall with the return of the fan-favorite PSL and the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, both made with real pumpkin.

Since the famed PSL first made its debut in 2003, more than 424 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been served in the United States.

The Starbucks lineup this year includes the PSL, Salted Caramel Mocha, New Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin. The all star hit the menu will hit stores in the U.S. and Canada on August 27.


Back for the 16th year, PSL combines espresso and steamed milk with real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The beverage is then topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices. Available hot, iced or as a Frappuccino blended beverage.
