Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Officially Back, And Everyone Is Ready
It’s that time of the year again: Pumpkin Spice Latte season at Starbucks. Everyone loves the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and next to the holiday decorative cups, the latte is the company’s most popular menu item.
But if you’re like us, you might be wondering why Starbucks brought back Pumpkin Spice Lattes a little earlier than usual. It’s still summer, right? Why is Starbucks bringing back fall sooner than normal?
A Seasonal Favorite
Starbucks’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a requirement during the fall season. They’re synonymous with sweaters, falling leaves, and bonfires. You must order the latte in the fall.
But now you don’t have to wait until the colder weather to indulge in your favorite Starbucks drink. On Tuesday, August 28, Starbucks surprised coffee lovers by bringing back the popular latte much sooner than anticipated. Is summer officially over?
Not everyone is happy the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back. People shared their opinions on Twitter, with many sharing their annoyance at the news. Others, however, were excited about their favorite drink.
One user tweeted, “It’s about dang time! I missed you, Pumpkin Spice Latte.”
Another user is ready for fall: “I can’t wait to have the autumn leaves and dark nights to go with it.”
Starbucks Needs The Drink
Customers aren’t the only ones benefiting from the Pumpkin Spice Latte. A recent report from Forbes explained that Starbucks needs the fall drink just as much as we do.
Starbucks relies on the latte, as well as other seasonal drinks, to give the company a strong finish to the calendar year. But Starbucks needs more help now than ever before, as many customers are turning away from the company’s sugary drinks. More customers are also ordering iced coffee drinks than hot coffee.
Starbucks is hoping the Pumpkin Spice Latte (which you can definitely order as an iced drink) will increase sale numbers the next few months. With this in mind, we can’t blame Starbucks for introducing the drink a little sooner than normal.
Now, excuse us while we order our drink.
