The PSL Is Back! Starbucks Announces the Pumpkin Spice Latte Release Date

·3 min read

The most wonderful time of the year is here—and no, we're not talking about Christmas. Starbucks's Pumpkin Spice Latte is officially returning to stores on August 30, 2022. Along with the classic PSL—which has been a fall menu favorite for 19 years in a row—the coffee chain is also bringing back the Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew for a fourth season.

Starbucks is also debuting their first fall nondairy beverage, a twist on last year's Apple Crisp Macchiato. Starting August 30, nondairy drinkers can order the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, which is made with creamy oatmilk and Starbucks blonde espresso.

The drinks will all be available as soon as stores open on August 30, along with an array of pumpkin bakery items. You'll be able to order a pumpkin cream cheese muffin, pumpkin scone, or pumpkin loaf to go with your PSL all fall long.

If you'd rather be your own barista, the brand is also making it easier than ever to enjoy the classic flavor from home. Starbucks' pumpkin spice-inspired collection is back in grocery stores across the country, and they've rolled out more pumpkin-flavored products than ever before. Whether you're working from home or need an afternoon pick-me-up at the office, you can enjoy a PSL wherever you are—and you'll even save some money, too.

Pick up their classic Pumpkin Spice Flavored Coffee ($10) to start your mornings with the classic fall flavor at home or in the office. It's available as a ground coffee as well as K-Cup option that allows you to brew 22 cups of delicious pumpkin-flavored coffee for less than $1 a cup. If temperatures are still too hot for you to enjoy a hot beverage in the morning, try the Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Concentrate ($9) or Iced Espresso Pumpkin Spice Latte—both of which are on grocery store shelves now.

You can also find a variety of Pumpkin Spice Flavored Creamers ($6) on shelves in both dairy and non-dairy options. Oat milk has been increasingly popular at Starbucks locations across the country, and now you can make your own oat milk lattes at home—with a splash of pumpkin spice flavoring, of course. The 28-ounce non-dairy option uses a mix of almond and oat milks to keep the creamer dairy-free and features hints of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and cloves. And since you can grab a 28-ounce pumpkin-flavored creamer for the price of one Venti PSL, you'll save a good chunk of change by making your fall coffee treats at home.

There are also two brand new fall coffee products making their debut today: A Salted Caramel Mocha Flavored Coffee ($10) that's perfectly sweet and salty, and a Pumpkin Cream Nitro Cold Brew that's just as good as the pumpkin cold foam-topped nitro brew we fell in love with last fall. It's never been easier (or cheaper) to enjoy a delicious pumpkin spice-flavored cold brew. The 32-ounce bottle of coffee concentrate makes 8 servings (just add water!) for about the price of two drinks at the actual coffee shop.

The brand announced their fall coffee products are available wherever groceries are sold, so call your local grocery store to check inventory before heading over. The above items are all available in stores at Target and Walmart, and many of them are already available online for same-day pickup as well.
