It's Official, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes Will Be Available In Canada Next Week

Although Summer tends to be the favourite season for most, a lot of people truly live for the season afterwards that welcomes all things from cozy to spooky. Seriously, Autumn is the best when it comes to movie marathons, haunted attractions and incredible festivals you can't find any other time of the year.

But what really initiates the entire season is the festive food and drinks we all know and love such as pumpkin pie, candy corn, and who could forget the iconic beverage that basically dictates when Autumn begins, Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Via Starbucks

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is arguably more of a cultural symbol now rather than a typical nice warm beverage. Every year during the same time you can't step outside without hearing or seeing the iconic drink somewhere. Unfortunately, the drink is only around for a limited time, and it seems like such a long wait before we can finally get our hands on the festive treat!

Well, not anymore.

Starbucks has officially announced that the Pumpkin Spice Lattes will be available in Canada starting Tuesday August 28th! 

This is one of the earliest release dates Starbucks has ever had for the Pumpkin Spice Latte, meaning they're probably just as excited for the Autumn season as the rest of us. Way to go, Starbucks!

Who else is totally ready for Fall to arrive?!

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
