- Starbucks' most popular seasonal drink is almost back, marking the start of Fall.
- Even with the hot weather still strong in Montreal, Starbucks will soon be serving up the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte.
- Get yours iced if it's still hot next week when they launch the famous drink for the 16th year!
Fall means different things for different people. For some, it means the ability to layer up as the air gets fresh, the beautiful colours as the leaves change and the excitement of a new season.
For others, I know this season perpetually feels like the onslaught of a new school year and as the air starts to change the anxiety kicks in.
That's why it's nice to use Autumn as an excuse to go full-force self-care, get super cozy and maybe even use those pre-school jitters to get yourself organized as you leap into Fall.
But I think it's safe to say that no matter what camp you're in, a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks just does the soul good.
You get you live out your Basic Bitch fantasy (because we've all got a little Becky inside of us just longing to be accepted) while sipping on a drink that literally feels like a blanket scarf for your insides.
And we all know how much Montrealers love their blanket scarves, amirite?
So luckily the Fall staple drink is almost back, and we're here to let you know exactly when you can expect to be sipping on your first PSL of the season.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte is made with real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, which is why it essentially tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup.
In fact, when Starbucks was developing the drink, they had pumpkin pies on-site to ensure they were always striving towards the most authentic pumpkin pie flavour.
The drink can be modified like any Starbucks drink, so if you're a soy or almond mil kinda girl, they got you covered. Plus they've been doing this for over 15 years, so they know how to get it right, every time.
In fact, it's their top-selling season beverage of all time, so you better believe they've perfected it.
And Montrealers can taste their first sip of Autumn in no time, because Starbucks has decided that August 27th is now the first day of Fall, and thus the first day you can pick up a PSL at your local Starbucks.
While you may still be sweltering by then, if this week's humidity is any indication, you can always order your PSL over ice, as with most Starbucks drinks, so you can live in Summer and Fall at the same time.
