Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte may arrive sooner than we thought

It's unclear what the announcement is, but the tweet basically said to monitor Starbucks Facebook page on September 1. Many of them reported that they had successfully ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte Friday morning, simply by asking the barista for the drink.

As it did a year ago, the Pumpkin Spice Latte's arrivial comes on September 1, just in case your fantasy football draft and that nip in the air didn't already remind you that fall is on its way.

After teasing fans for days, Starbucks has begun pouring its extraordinarily popular drink, but not everywhere. Further adding to the confusion is the fact that the PSL is not yet available on the chain's mobile ordering app.

She isn't the only one. It not only smells like the famous PSL, but also has packaging that mimics a Starbucks cup, with "x" s inside boxes that read "paraben-free", "pthalate-free", and "aluminum-free".


But some people are not pleased with the "early" launch of the autumnal beverage.

If you're wanting to hold out for the next batch of PSL candles to be made up, instead of trying out any of the above four flavours, you can expect to get your hands on one around mid to late September. "Customers can start prepping for fall with new Starbucks Pumpkin Spice offerings and other returning favorites, for cozy coffee moments at home", Starbucks announced in a press release.

Making people feel like they're part of a special club who can order from a secret menu helps build hype for the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
