As Canadians soak up the last days of summer, we’re daydreaming about chunky sweaters, crisp morning air, swirling, golden leaves that set the sky ablaze and, of course, all things pumpkin spice.
Yup, the first sip of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) or Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew cues the unofficial start of the fall, and we’re excited to welcome their return this season (back for its 19th year!) on August 30. Fun fact: an average of 60,000 PSLs were made every day at Starbucks across Canada in 2021 throughout the fall season, solidifying it as the most popular seasonal beverage. The handcrafted beverage combines Starbucks signature espresso and steamed milk with flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to complement the real pumpkin in the sauce. Topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices, the beverage is available hot, iced or blended at stores in Canada throughout the season.
Also back by popular demand is the Apple Crisp Macchiato, reformulated with creamy oat beverage and Starbucks Blonde Espresso for an even more delicious apple experience. And, for a limited time, the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice.
Consider yourself the PSL’s biggest fan? Celebrate the season and share your love of all things fall with the Pumpkin Portal to Fall—a fun game to reveal how much of a fall expert you really are. —Vita Daily
